It's been a while since our last post but that doesn't mean we haven't had lots going on.
20-21 Visual Arts Centre's Education Service has delivered projects, after school clubs, school workshops and developed some new core workshops. 

We have lots of innovative and engaging ways for schools to get the most out of our exhibitions during 2017.
Here's just a reminder of what we offer for schools, colleges and other education groups.

20-21 Visual Arts Centre offers the following for future interest.
· Self guided tours which are free, we just ask that you let us know that you are coming.
· Guided tours which cost £20. A Learning Assistant will take you around the gallery and give you additional information on the building and exhibitions.
Both the above can be enhanced by booking the Activity Table for £1 per child where they can create a piece of work relating to the exhibitions.
We also offer core workshops and bespoke workshops. Starting from just £3.50 per pupil.
· Core workshops are workshops that have already been planned and are slightly cheaper. They are based around drawing, clay, print, mess and mixtures, book art and shadow puppet based.
· Bespoke workshops are designed to your chosen topics.

The above can be delivered here at 20-21 or as outreach at your school, except for our screen print  and mess and mixtures workshops which are delivered at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre only.
We also offer project work, after school clubs and teacher training.
Please contact us with any questions you may have regarding what we can offer.

Mess and Mixtures 
This is a new half day core workshop for 2017, focusing on science in art through investigating different materials and their properties. Children will work in groups and on their own to create a variety of patterns, shapes and forms from a wide range of materials and processes. The workshop gives children the opportunity to experiment, get messy, have fun with a wide variety of materials whilst having the ‘Science’ behind the chemical changes explained along the way. It’s a balloon popping time! Here is what a teacher from Morton Trentside Primary School said about the workshop “Very organised and hands on, encouraged children to express own ideas and try new techniques. We have lots of ideas on how we can further explore the artists and techniques back at school. We all thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and would highly recommend the workshop to any other school group. Thank you very much”.
Suitable for all KS1and KS2.

Exhibitions for September 2017:

Drawing for Sculpture

Featuring everything from rough sketches and experimental artworks to detailed technical drawings and three-dimensional digital models, Drawing for Sculpture includes work from over 20 sculptors who use drawing as part of their creative process. The show encompasses a wide range of materials and techniques, and includes well-known names from Halima Cassel to Michael Shaw.

Genetic Moo

To the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, digital arts collective Genetic Moo have been running family workshops across the country inspired by the classic play A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Part of the Shake Shakespeare project (in partnership with North Lincolnshire Arts Development and Words Count), Love-in-Idleness features a selection of their creations, from digitally manipulated images, to coding, to video work.                

Hope you all have a good Summer and watch out for new posts later in 2017.
