An autumn programme of arts sessions led by leading education professionals has been set up by Bow Arts education charity in east London for those aiming for a career as artists.
The sessions include networking and practical exercises, learning to use resources that can be used in the classroom and elsewhere.
There are also opportunities for would-be artists to share ideas and develop skills in the Commission Lab sessions as an introduction for beginners and a ‘refresher’ for more experienced practitioners.
The courses begin this-evening with a two-hour ‘Peer Crit’ chat session starting at 6pm at East London’s Essex House Studios at 375 Stratford High Street, an opportunity for artists to share ideas, ask questions and get feedback from others. Cost: £5.50 (concessions £3.50).
They continue next Tuesday, September 22, with a two-hour Education session, ‘Understanding Schools’, led by Gillian Drinkwater from Woolmore Primary School in Poplar and Rob Smith from Bow Arts, held at Bow Art’s Courtyard Rooms at 183 Bow Road. It is an introduction to the national curriculum and teaches about the Arts and Design programme and the opportunities to work with schools. It starts 6.30pm, cost £10 (concessions £5).
