Last Newsletter of 2013!

We have just sent out our latest and last newsletter of the year! Our first ever four pager is jam packed with information on some of the things we've been up to and what opportunities are available for the new year.
This issue features all the successes of this year, including details of our now award winning services, our new Teacher Training offer Finding the Rs in Arts and opportunities to work with some exciting artists!

First  opportunity up, available until April  2014 only:

The Baked Bean Making Machine, with artist Dominic Heffer

Winner of our Open competition, international artist and maker extraordinaire, Dominic Heffer is offering an outrageously exciting opportunity for school engagement.
Dominic's bold images and sculptures currently adorn the halls of our galleries, and we're working with him to get as many schools and children involved in his new project the Baked Bean Making Machine, as we can.
Work with Dominic to create a machine that uses skills in design and technology, and creative and critical thinking.

Our second very exciting opportunity comes in the shape of lots of electrical wires, light switches and technological thinking:
Virtual World Workshop and Volatile Light
Highly esteemed theatre company IOU are bringing one of their most exciting exhibitions to 20-21 Visual Arts Centre in May 2014.
“Volatile Light is a mesmerising sound and light installation. Featuring an array of     specially made machines, LED lights will be attached to rotating arms, levers and cranks to weave a series of eccentric curves, sweeping arcs and hectic scribbles in the darkened gallery space.
“The IOU Virtual World workshop allows   participants to learn about 3D design and architecture, physics and mathematics, along with the ability to gain an understanding of computer programming, virtual reality and the gamification of theatrical mechanics.”
Please contact our Education Officer (details below) to book this truly fantastic experience, or to find out more about how our award winning services can support art in your school.
