14 January with Jenny Leonard
Join Trapped in Zone One and Jenny Leonard as we host a virtual workshop on Zoom and streamed live on Facebook creating works themed around aspirations for the New Year engaging with communities in Tower Hamlets and neighbouring boroughs during these uncertain times to promote mindfulness through an artistic approach.
In this virtual workshop we will play with 4-5 simple drawing activities that are accessible for all ages and abilities. With the overall theme of working on character creation, making positive self-portraiture and character avatars, looking at inventive ways to make faces and cartoons.
In order for you to take part in our virtual workshops please register to receive an invite to Zoom, and you’ll also need the following materials: A4/A3 sheet of paper, pencil, rubber, ruler, black and varied colour felt pens or markers.
And to make it interesting we\'re going to add a touch of competitiveness by offering a GreatArt gift voucher to the family with the most creative work judged by Jenny thanks to The Parents Zone Your Digital Family programme.
26 January with Fandangoe Kid
This workshop is a chance to come together and share what has worked in 2020, a chance to celebrate our strength in the face of adversity, together. This year has been one of the toughest years that many of us have experienced collectively.
Join us in a workshop which allows us to reflect on that and share our stories for making it through. Through graphic art and narrative driven pieces, we will develop large scale work, which bring together our collective voice on coping with adversity, celebrating our resilience. See our website for a material list!
16 February with Fandangoe Kid
This year, our understanding of togetherness has really shifted and we have had to work hard to adapt to a new way of living. Isolation, quarantine, lockdown are all now staple parts of our 2020 vocabulary. So how have you managed to maintain togetherness in the face of all of this? What does togetherness mean to you at the end of this tough year? How can we continue to stay strong, together but apart?
Share your stories of togetherness with us in this workshop by developing narrative driven pieces to make large scale work, which bring together our collective voice on togetherness. See our website for a material list.
Please register via our website to receive an invite to the Zoom meeting. See our website also for information about materials you will need to bring!
