Come along to one of our free Young Explorers workshops at Greenwood Avenue Library, where children aged 7-11 will have the opportunity to develop their creative and lateral thinking skills with two talented, local artists- Jon Keen & Leila Reeves- over the course of 15 weeks, beginning 3rd March 2021.

All resources will be provided free of charge, which will need collecting from the library.

About the artists

Jon Keen- Over the last several years Jon Keen has been making work using a maze motif that focuses on the ideas of choice and consequences, mapping his life, or life as he views it, through painting and cardboard sculpture.

Lelia Reeves- Photographic Artist. Through the process of physical layering, Leila revisits time and place, reworking memories and reflecting on the duality of life. The images rewrite a story. They recreate a narrative that places focus and value on a point in time and the gentle shifts that exist in a fast moving life and the isolation that occurs when we stop and remember.
