Gerald Moore Gallery is very proud of its contribution to the local community - through its free outreach programme many hundreds of primary school children experience art workshops within a gallery setting every year.
We are working with Marvel's Lane Primary School on a year long project funded by Chinbrook Big Local (ChART) from 2018-2019. Each term we deliver art workshops to up to 15 different students in Years 3&4 during an after school club. Each week they learn a new art skill and are introduced to a different artist.
Week 1 Printing and Terry Frost
Week 2 Clay and Anthony Gormley
Week 3 Watercolours and Quentin Blake
Week 4 Textiles and Yinka Shonibare
Week 5 Sculpture and Hew Locke
Week 6 Visit to Gerald Moore Gallery to make exhibition art work.
By the end of the project all the Art Clubs will have work to show in a Summer exhibition at the Gerald Moore Gallery and can invite friends and family to an art making day to share the skills they have learnt.
