Schools Workshops

11- 15 February 2013

These have been fully booked

Some workshops combine a compendium of fun, hands on tasks that cater for the wide range of ages and abilities and attention spans and learning approaches of the young people, and adults! There will be a variety of exercises, activities to choose from that stimulate and engage, encouraging parents to share the show and the gallery space closely with their toddlers in making or exploring, or to develop the young persons independent thinking and making abilities, or to work with others and make friends. These include, origami star making, Mask Colour Portaits to Collective  Bunting. There is also consideration of tasks to explore observation, making skills and communication.

Other workshops are devised around a series of altogether, smaller group and individual exercises then explores emotion, memory, action and identity through games, acting and sound. These will be a mixture of kinetic and stationary exercises, drawing, make believe as well as devising their own narrative into a play. Each stage of the exercise is carefully thought out and assisted so development towards familiarity with works and working with each other progresses closely guided and pupils can see the progression. The exercises challenge but are also fun and open and encourage experimentation, equality and sharing as well as active use of imagination and emphasizing there is no right or wrong.
