Description

Leap Then Look Summer School 2019 at Phoenix Brighton

Week one - 12 to 16 August for children aged 6-9 years
Week two - 19 to 23 August for children aged 10-13 years

Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm

This summer Leap Then Look are running two, week-long, summer schools for children aged 6-9 and 10-13 at Phoenix Brighton. Each will be a five-day adventure in contemporary art, where children will discover a range of new art making techniques through a mixture of structured and open-ended daily activities. The focus will be on working together, exploring our ideas practically, using a wide range of inspiring materials and looking at the work and processes of artists working now. Children will work with different media and technology to create their own images, videos, objects, performances and environments, always working BIG, trying things out in new and unexpected ways and asking questions.

“Make a sculpture as big as you, make it something you can wear, or climb inside. Make a video of it, choose some music to go with it. Dance! Can you involve more people? Make a placard, shout it across the room, make this the title for a sculpture and ask someone else to make it. Make another, bigger one together. Can it make a sound? Give it to someone else and teach them how to play it. What else can you do with it? Create a performance with the objects you have made. Take pictures. Project the images onto the wall, draw over the projections. What have you made?”

The workshops will run Monday – Friday 9am till 5pm. At 4pm on the Friday of each week there will be an exhibition of the work made over the week: an opportunity for children to share what they have been doing with parents/carers and to involve them in the things we have made and experiences we have had together.

The Summer School will offer children new ways of thinking about art, expanding their experience and expectations, teaching them how to use art making to pose and answer questions, developing a critical and questioning vocabulary. It will give them collaborative skills and develop a collective sense of pride in their work. Most of all it will be a fun and inspiring experience, building confidence, forming friendships and supporting well-being.

Children will need to bring: a packed lunch, snacks, water bottle and clothes they can get messy in.

Booking: please ensure you provide all the required information about your child on checkout including any additional needs or requirements. Your mobile phone number will be used as an emergency contact.

N.B. A 10% sibling discount is available on additional tickets if parents/carers buy one full price ticket at the same time. This can be applied across week one and week two i.e. the siblings do not need to attend the same week.
