Review of CPD event at THG
12 July 2010
Our event on 5th July at Thelma Hulbert Gallery was well attended and enjoyed by all. Participants heard speakers from our venues as well as teachers from Isca College and Ellen Tinkham School. The afternoon was filled with practical activities including a chance to explore the gallery with our new Art Kit and its creators Simon Persighetti and David Chatton-Barker. Others took part in printmaking and a 'two materials' activity. The day was rounded off with a lively group discussion followed by a presentation by Phil Creek from the Learning Development Partnership extolling the values and benefits to young people of participation in the arts and galleries.
All of the Art on Your Doorstep venues have CPD sessions for teachers and youth workers running over the autumn and winter. Join curators at CCANW to explore issues around sustainable fashion; Plymouth Arts Centre gives you the opportunity to learn about using the upcoming British Art Show as a resource for young people. The Thelma Hulbert Gallery asks you to join them with artists from its current exhibition, Inspirational Objects, to explore ways of making and Exeter Phoenix is running sessions to coincide with its upcoming exhibitions. Spacex is running sessions for trainee teachers to learn about using galleries with young people. Have a look at our individual venue pages to find out more.
