This Early Years Training session will explore new ways of working with Early Years and SEN using October Gallery exhibitions and artists as stimuli.
The exhibition at October Gallery will be 'Aubrey Williams: Realm of the Sun' Williams' was born in Guyana in 1926 and was an integral part of the explosion of creativity and optimism amongst Caribbean writers, artists and intellectuals in London at the time. We will look at this work in relation to Black History Month and linking art and colour with music.
The session will run during the morning to enable busy freelancers, teachers and those who work in museum and gallery education to attend without having to give up an entire day. The session will be led by Dani Bradstreet (Storyteller and Early Years Specialist) who will explore the way in which October Gallery delivers their Family Learning Programme, through storytelling, art and multisensory activities. Georgie Fay (Education Coordinator) will also discuss the exhibition and ways to work with art and music, as well as reflect on family projects/activities planned which link the abstract work of Aubrey Williams with objects in the British Museum
Tea, Coffee and refreshments will be provided as well as useful tips and ideas in a resource pack
