Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Aimed at primary and secondary school teachers with an interest in creativity, sound or art.

You will gain practical techniques to use in class with your students, while exploring creative use of sound to enhance our experience of spaces.

Is art best enjoyed in silence? Should galleries be silent places? Artist Susan Philipsz creates visual artworks which bring sound into the gallery. This workshop will introduce you to her work, and give you the tools to create your own sound sculptures, with guidance from practising artists. We will think about sound creatively, treating it as a material like paint or sculpture, and embracing non-musical sounds.

Led by musician Yann Seznec and visual artist Fraser Gray

Key aims:

To demonstrate inspiring methods of interdisciplinary learning, combining sound and visual art, for learners of different ages to make connections between music and art

To build teachers’ confidence in delivering interdisciplinary projects

To demonstrate how creativity skills can be developed in class (curiosity, imagination, problem-solving, open mindedness)


To deliver an enjoyable, challenging and rewarding day
