Alternative after-school art club for 10-15s
We are an open, creative and exciting club that explores a variety of visual arts and crafts through friendly weekly sessions. Our fun and informal atmosphere encourages young people to channel their own creativity, try new techniques and make a good mess.
Activities vary from spray-painting to sculpture, puppetry to prosthetics, costume design to claymation and more...
Each half term has a loose theme inspired by either an artist, movement or medium, and students are encouraged to develop their own ideas and outcomes in a unique way. We promote experimentation, collaboration and having fun through making!
We meet every Thursday during term time from 6-7.30pm at Highgate Wood School
Current project: Pixel Project
We will be breaking images down into grids and recreating them in weird and wonderful ways! Use any material you like, wether painting, collaging or making assemblages out of sweets and found objects!
We shall take inspiration from artists such as chuck close and space invader
5 sessions: Thursdays 25th April - 27th May 2019
