The Leegate Arts Project

Kate writes:

A once empty shop in the desolate Leegate Shopping Centre has been transformed into a creative art studio to offer free print workshops to local people. The shop will then become a temporary gallery for one week at the end of the project in February 2012, exhibiting all the work produced in the workshops.

From early December 2011 to late February 2012, Leegate Arts Project wants to work with local people to develop a creative project and produce a community art exhibition. Residents aged 40/50+ and young people 13-19 are invited to take part in the project.

Through a series of workshops and creative sessions, participants can explore printmaking, photography, drawing and creative writing.

The project is run by a relaxed group of local artists, photographers, designers and writers who will lead creative and fun workshops.  There is also a brilliant team of volunteers made up of a mixture of 6th form arts students, local residents, youth workers and people who just love art!  As a group we will help you to find your creative side and learn new skills.  All we need you to do is turn up!

Drop in Workshop – Saturday 10th December 2011: 10am-4pm
Workshop Sessions (from 12/12/11) – Mondays: 5.30pm–7.30pm & Saturdays: 10am–1pm
5 Leegate Shopping Centre, Lee Green, London, SE12 8SS

If you would like to sign up and take part in the project or for further information please contact: Hannah Westwood or Thulani Shuku, email: leegatearts@gmail.com or call Hannah on: 07711219030

Forest Hill School's PTA will be holding an Art Fair between June 22nd and June 24th 2012. There has been an active PTA at this boys school for the past 35 years and every year we think of how we can do even better with our fundraising efforts. We are looking for local and international artists to sign up to exhibit, just go to http://www.thegallerylondon.org/events/art-fair/ where an application form and monthly updates will be sent to interested parties, or contact the PTA for more information
