Thanks very much to Hammersmith & Fulham council who have
just given ArtWest a grant for our event. We will do our best to
repay this by reaching out to local neighbourhoods.
in Kenmont Primary School since 2013 to help and encourage children to be more creative in life. We always receive a good response from teachers and parents as well as children.
This year, Asaki Kan has started to hold art workshops at the
Old Oak Community & Children’s Centre (oldoakcentre.co.uk)
and for the Old Oak & Park Royal Development Corporation at the Central Middlesex Hospital. We hope to continue to be involved with local communities and to help people explore creativity in this way.
As part of our outreach, we also aim to help the Koestler Trust www.koestlertrust.org.uk, which is a charity that encourages
prisoners to create artwork. Every year, they collect paintings, sculpture and prints from prisons all over the country, and
volunteer artists review them give critical feedback about each
work. Some pieces are incredibly skillful, and indeed inspiring.
We find this activity extremely rewarding, and we would like
very much to continue to work with the Koestler Trust.
Here are some photos from the workshops conducted so far in 2018.
Asaki Kan held this one at the Old Oak Community & Children’s Centre, where she showed workshops attendees how to make
plaster casts of their hands.
In early 2018 Shona Elrick led 2 art workshops for local people with Dementia & their carers at H & F Town Hall, in part helped by HUC via Peggy Coles & in part via Art4Dementia Charity working with Dementia Pathfinders.
Asaki Kan led an art workshop in the summer of 2016 at Old Oak Primary School, Braybrook Street, East Acton, and four workshops were held at Kenmont School in July, led by Asaki Kan and June Bartlett. June focused on the Golden Jubilee and Asaki did workshops using magnets, paper and clay.
In late 2017 Shona Elrick led a workshop for the A level group at Queens Park Community School, NW6, on the properties of clay,
and creative use of slip.
Materials for all our workshops are kindly donated by Cass Art.
