Crosby Primary's After School Art Club Host Their Own Exhibition!

This academic year saw the start of a new project at Crosby Primary School.

The After School Art Club at Crosby Primary School started in September and is already proving to be a big success. The pupils are exploring the themes of buildings and architecture through a wide variety of art forms.

As well as teaching new artistic skills and how to master new materials, we have also incorporated elements of maths, science and literacy into the sessions.

It has been great fun so far and the kids are really proud of the fantastic work they've produced. So proud, in fact, that they decided to hold their own exhibition to showcase their talents to their parents and teachers! 

'At the last week we invited parents and teachers. 
Art club was cool.' 

They designed and produced their own invitations for the event and then took it in turns to present the artwork to the audience.

'I think this club was the best because there was lots of fun activities every week. I liked best making the houses.' 

 They cannot wait to come back to Art Club next term.

20-21 Visual Arts Centre could run an After School Art Club at your school too. If you're interested, please get in touch via or by calling 01724 297070.

20-21 Teachers' Group Have Their First Meeting

Developed on feedback from teachers across North Lincolnshire schools, the 20-21 Teachers' Group is a space for arts educators across all sectors and Key Stages to meet, share ideas and learn skills in the arts.

The first Teachers' Group session on 14th October was delivered by artist Dominic Heffer. He focused on improving drawing skills, in line with The Big Draw, and helped to prepare teachers for work back in the classroom.

The first session, full of fantastic, useful ideas, went down well with teachers;

"Very informative. Lovely atmosphere. Super interaction with others. Expert, exciting knowledge, super delivery. Many thanks, a very enjoyable experience."

"Superb workshop with excellent instruction. I feel much more confident about trying drawing activities in school myself now." 

The second session, due to take place in January, will be delivered by artist, Linda Ingham, who will focus on improving painting skills. The third and final session of the academic year will take place in April and artist Alexis Rago will lead it to coincide with Anthony Gormley's, The Field, here at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre. Alexis will deliver something entirely different to the previous sessions and will focus on using clay.
