Facilitating Summer in the Square Art workshops at the National Gallery, London

Well what can say! I had the huge honour of going over to London working with imagineer and help facilitate a free 3 day art workshop at the National Gallery. 

The gallery had installed a huge outdoor tent overlooking Trafalgar Square, housing many organised workshops over the course of the summer. 

We designed and built a bamboo sea stormed backdrop relating to the theme of an exhibition that was on going at the gallery. The painting in particular was ‘A Shipwreck in Stormy Seas’ by the artist Claude-Joseph Vernet.

Over the course of the 3 days we were in the presence of over 4000 children and adults of all ages and backgrounds that came through and tried their hand at drawing and making artworks based off ships, sea monsters and other sea related themes.

Our main aim was to embrace the idea that creating art is for everybody no matter what the age or background. The one thing that struck me the most was the interaction between parents and their children, feeding off each others energy and creating fun and engaging work.

It was an overwhelmingly emotional experience working with a fabulous team of helpers from the National gallery that witnessed so many people enjoying the sessions which was both rewarding and inspirational.

Children’s art Summer Workshops & classes at Chilvers Coton Craft Centre, Nuneaton

It was my second week into the kids art classes that I run in the studio at Chilvers Coton Craft Centre in Nuneaton.

My aim is to create child centred learning so that they can develop in their own way. It is very rewarding when you sit and hear the children express and discuss about everyday life in their own way and through their creativity. 
If you live in the Warwickshire area or nearby, let me know if your child would be interested in the classes.

There will also be summer classes over the school summer holiday period.

Art Installations at the Godiva Fesitval

For a while now I have been involved in working with young people as part of the Transformations Project run by Imagineer Productions in Coventry. They are 16 - 30 year olds with a range of backgrounds, some Neuro Diverse, some with emotional difficulties and others who just need a little more guidance and direction on their own personal journey.

As a working artist I felt that I could help transfer the experiences and difficulties I myself have endured and used this to ignite and inspire young people to create their own path.

This cohort I have been assigned as lead artist to help deliver the participants concepts into full size structures and installations that are to be displayed at the Godiva Festival along with the help of other staff and support workers.
