Art Unlocked is a new online group aimed at secondary school Years 7-11 who want to explore the art world in new and interesting ways.
What is it?
The Stained Glass Museum is launching a brand new weekly online group for teenagers in secondary school years 7-11. Art Unlocked is a pilot programme for those who want to explore the art world in new and interesting ways. Through workshops led by our Curator and Learning & Community Engagement Manager Art Unlocked is designed to encourage young people to engage with art and enabling them to:
● Have fun
● Share ideas
● Improve knowledge
● Develop new skills
● Make new friends
Each week’s session will take a different theme, with an ‘object in focus’ presentation, discussion and activity integrating craft and practical based arts which could include creative writing and poetry, music, dance and drama. No previous arts knowledge is required!
We will be running the first 2 pilot sessions online in March on the following days:
● Tuesday 16 March -16:30-18:00PM
● Tuesday 23 March -16:30-18:00PM
Please note spaces are limited.
We are running these pilot sessions free of charge. However, if you feel you want to contribute to the Learning Departments future work, donations to the museum are most welcome.
After these two pilot sessions we will then review the offer going forwards.
Who are these workshops for?
Each session is limited to 16 young people, school years 7-11 and you will need to sign up to individual sessions, obtaining the permission of a responsible adult first.
The workshops will be held virtually using ZOOM, following the museum’s Virtual Learning Safeguarding Guidelines and in accordance with the museum’s Safeguarding Policy
