Turn up. Bring ideas. Make things happen.
Art Club is run by professional artists who want to work with you to develop extraordinary ideas and projects.
Saturdays 10am – 1pm.
Sessions are being led by artist Nita Newman, assisted by Holly O’Meara, and are aimed at any young people with a passion for the arts. There’ll be drop-in workshops with artists from all kinds of artforms, drama, dance, visual arts – anything creative in fact.
What is Art Club?
Art club is a portal into art for young people. It is a place for them to experiment, to try out a range of artforms and processes, and to explore their world through making art. It is a foundation course for foundation courses, where eclectic approaches to art making can be tasted, and followed through if the taste is good. It is a place for fun, for meeting others from outside your peer group, who have a shared interest in the arts. It is a place for visual art, drama, dance, for painting, drawing, sculpting, and sometimes just making a mess. It’s a chance to meet artists working in all kinds of artforms, to hear their stories and to learn from them, and sometimes to teach them. Above all, it’s a place for sharing, ideas, art and thoughts, and to find ways to express and communicate this to others, and with each other.
So, if you’re a young person, 12+ for preference, (but if you’re talented and committed we can take young people from 8+), or you have one knocking about the house who would love this opportunity, come along to The Edge, 79-81 Cheapside, B12 0QH (look for the massive white sign), this Saturday and every Saturday, from 10am until 1pm. Or if you’re an artist and you want to hone your skills in working with young people we always welcome volunteers. The opportunity is open to all young people from Birmingham – as long as you care about art and are willing to get stuck in! For more information contact Friction on 0121 772 6160
