Again this summer we will be at our base, the Old School Rooms at the Round Chapel, so we will have lots of space to create! Young artists will developed their creative skills through a programme of imaginative workshops with our theme being ‘Animal’. The days will include several activities, experimenting with exciting new materials and developing idea’s in their own sketchbook. We are also pleased to announce that this year we have been invited to take part the the celebration of 20 years of community engagement at the Old School Rooms, #20RoundHere. On the last day of the camp, our young artists will show case there work in an exhibition and host a private view for all to see. We also intend for some creations to be part of a semi permanent installation at the space as part of the #20RoundHere celebration. Children will be divided in to two age appropriate groups. ‘Doodle’ ages 5 – 7 years and ‘Sketcher’ ages 8 – 11 years. There will be a maximum of 18 children per group. Workshops will be run by experienced workshop facilitators and professional artists. There will be some messy, outdoor workshops and we plan to picnic lunch in the park (Clapton Square) daily.
Children will need to bring a packed lunch and dressed for mess!

A journey, experiencing all the greatness of Hackney, from our green spaces to our inspirational ‘street art’
See some of our wonderful testimonials…..

“My boys did Artbash summer camp. My youngest is partially hearing and it was a very inclusive, understanding and safe place for him to be. And most of all it was FUN! 
He still has his sunglasses on his window and my older son’s surfboard still has pride of place on his wall.”

By Jessica Mann mother of Danny (5) & Joe (6)

“My daughter loved her Art bash summer camp and I loved hearing the incredible fun and creative stories she came home with each day. Also, we now have a paper palm tree on our landing so for that alone, artbash was worth it. I would definitely recommend it. 

 By Miriam mother of Eva (5)

“My daughter had a wonderful time at the summer Artbash. She was thrown in with a load of other kids and responded instantly to the creative process abundant in the Artbash offering. At the end of the first day she wanted confirmation she was, “here for the rest of the week, right?”

 Minnie felt safe, secure and cared for which allowed her to get on with the serious business of making stuff! Minnie picked up many new skills which are now part of her creative process and she had a vast array of show and tell for the end of the week and was very proud showing it to us, many pieces still take pride of place in her bedroom.

 We have agreed that she will attend all future Artbash weeks and I would have no hesitation in recommending Art bash for those  parents unsure. Money and time very well spent.”

 By Liam father of Minnie (9)
