Projects in 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

work delivered to Grange Park today 4th January 2019

Our last artwork for 2018 completed in December 2018 for ‘The Grange’ working in collaboration with art group, local,  and the art of recovery community. on behalf of Horizon Blackpool.

Thank you to everyone who participated and a Happy New Year.

We are currently working with people in Blackpool as part of our Art Buddies Project.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The project aims to support people who may be socially isolated to get involved creatively in their communities. We take creative activities to people who may not have the opportunity to get involved with the arts due to personal circumstance or ill health. The project is funded by BCH.

 

 

In November we began work with the art group at the Grange, Grange Park to produce a bespoke artwork that reflects the memories and images of people of Grange Park. We are working with the group for 6 weeks until 14th December.

We were at Highfield Park today creating art works for the park with the community and Friends of Highfield Park volunteers.

Work started in May after 2 days of sorting and cutting tiles

We  received a very generous donation of tiles from Al-Murad Tiles Blackpool branch. Thanks to artist Kass –

Fantasy plant workshop at Revoe Learning Academy year 5

DSCF7219

Another small selection of plants made by year 5 this time.

Picking out unusual plant and flower and plant names from the ‘mystery bag’ first the pupils then drew out a design of how they visualized their plant might look. Later after making the plants and flowers using recycled materials they researched how the plant really looked and where in the world the plant came from.

The project was set up to support and publicise the community garden project on Central Drive and is funded by LeftCoast.
