Williamson Art Gallery Summer Art Projects and Birkenhead Arts outreach projects

I've been working on the Summer Arts Projects and outreach programme with Wirral Methodist housing, the friends of the Williamson and the Arts Coucil England at the Williamson Art Gallery over the last few years. The summer Arts project gives several artists the chance to work in the galleries education room as lead artist for four mornings sessions, working with children aged 8-15 on a project that they have prepared based on that years theme. The outreach programme gives artists the chance to work outdoors with the community on half day themed workshops working with children of all ages on a project that they have prepared based on that years theme.

 

The annual exhibition of the young peoples work is held each September to celebrate their achievements.
