Inspired fun at Greenfield Arts

posted 28 Oct 2016, 04:25 by
Families and young people have had an inspirational week at Greenfield Arts during the half term holidays!

The week began with our Crazy Crafts session which was held at Foundations Building, Shildon. Here the theme was portraits using lots of different materials and methods. The results were impressive with artworks from charcoal, collage and ink. The session was inspired by Greenfield’s present Gallery Exhibition, ‘The Shapes of Cornish’ which features the work of popular local artist Norman Cornish.

Tuesday continued the ‘Cornish’ theme with a lovely session where the children got to make artful mining lamps which they could take home. The children were able to see the work in the gallery and learn about ‘miners art’ to inspire their work and learn a bit more about their heritage at the same time getting hands-on and having fun.

Friday saw the return of our very popular Star of theSshow where the children got to work with talented film-maker Laura Degnan working on their very own version of Despicable Me! The children rose to the occasion making their own story board and learning more about the fun of film.

The ‘Shapes of Cornish’ Exhibition will run until Wednesday 9th November 2016 and is a ‘must see’ with unseen works from such a talented and prominent artist. The gallery is open from 10 am – 9 pm from Monday to Thursday and from 10 am – 4 pm on a Friday. We look forward to seeing you soon!
