Event description

Description

We warmly invite families with a child/children with disabilities and their siblings to join us for a free art workshop at Autograph's gallery in Shoreditch.

The whole family is invited to get involved in creative play exploring the senses - playing with textures, light, sculpture and a variety of art materials.

This inclusive event will be led by artist educator Katriona Beales, who has extensive experience creating and leading workshops for families with children with SEND (special educational needs and disabilities).

Autograph's gallery is accessible and step-free. You can expect a warm welcome from our staff and volunteers before diving into a fun afternoon of art-making and experimentation.

Hello, I'm Katriona Beales - workshop leader

"Since I received workshop leader training with Creative Partnerships in 2006 I have worked extensively as an artist educator and workshop leader.

I have a wealth of experience, particularly in working with SEND, KS4 and 5 students and excluded young people from pupil referral unit’s. I was one of the Tate's Artist Workshop Leaders (2013-14), leading SEND workshops as well as primary and secondary school workshops in response to the collections at Tate Britain and Tate Modern. I was the lead artist on South London Gallery’s Supersmashers project (2013-15) looking after children aged 6-12 years old in partnership with social services and carers. Other Clients include Frieze Foundation, SPACE, Bow Arts Trust, Dulwich Picture Gallery, CIM at the University of Warwick, Camberwell School of Art, Havering College, Birkbeck University, Tate Liverpool, Aspire Trust, Liverpool Art and Design Academy, the Bluecoat, and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic.

I've exhibited my artwork internationally, most recently showing new commissions at the V&A and Science Gallery London (both 2018). My interdisciplinary project Are we all addicts now? supported by The Wellcome Trust and Arts Council England, was shown at Furtherfield, London (2017). I received an MA from Chelsea College of Arts and have an artist profile on Rhizome.org." www.katrionabeales.com
