Art4space run workshops using, a wide variety of materials including recycled art, withy, clay or paint. Workshops can include community event days and making withy sculptures for festival and processions.
We also offer community consultation packages with creative and effective ways to generate ideas from a community to input in a new park development or to feed into planning ideas. Art4Space also run after school workshops putting together exciting themed programmes for children to learn and express themselves creatively in relation to curriculum topics. We can tailor art workshops for youth club activities or projects involving older people.
We are happy to tailor your day after how long you want the workshop; by hours, half day and whole day workshop.
Art4Space will carry out stimulating and inspiring design sessions with chosen classes. We will talk about the theme of the mural then start with a series of warm up drawing exercises, leading into working with the pupils to create elements for the mural.
The designs from the children will be put into an overall composition – keeping the authenticity of the artwork as we use projector and grid method. The artwork will be created with a stunning selection of tiles, other non-porous materials and ceramic.
The ceramic sessions are for all ages. The pupils will create their own tiles for the mural, creating shapes and imprinting with different objects and text blocks and creating relief sections. The pupils will then paint their tiles with glazes ready for firing. This can be done with whole classes in their normal classroom environment.
The mosaic sessions will be carried out with year 4 and above, incorporating the ceramic pieces and following the designs done by the children. The children will come to us in groups of 8-10.
This can take place at the school and can involve parents, staff and children. It can be an open access workshop after school. 25 participants max.
What people have said
“We were lucky enough to have Julie and her team in from Art4Space yesterday to mosaic our 2 elephants for elephant parade 2010. The reason for this is to tell you how great they were, although the complete elephants very clearly speak for themselves. Julie and the team worked so hard with the boys and then stayed on till 6pm to finish up. It was a wonderful day and they deserve a massive reward for how hard they worked and how much they really cared about my boys and the project as a whole”
