VIVID Young Creatives welcomes Anne Harild at Chesterton Community College, Cambridge
As part of the evaluation of the ACE funded, 40 Artist Educator resources, AccessArt has joined forces with Cambridge School of Art at Anglia Ruskin University to bring a workshop programme of visiting visual artists or ‘creative practitioners’ into four Cambridgeshire schools.
The project is supported by VIVID (Value Increase by Visual Design) a “2 Seas” cross-border cooperation programme co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
The project has been coordinated and managed by AccessArt.
Anne worked with two groups of 20 year eight students at Chesterton Community College, Cambridge sharing a snippet of her own process through a hands on workshop introducing drawing, making and film making.
Anne introduced the workshop by talking about her own approach to creating her work and showing students images and films she had made, inspired by the built environment and places where people live.
Anne led students on a hands on creative journey incorporating drawing, construction with mixed media and animating on iPads. Students worked in response to the immediate, built environment of the school. Chesterton Community College is an iPad school, so children were well versed in using the technology.
