Spaces of Our Own Project Launch

This week will see the launch of the partnership project ‘Spaces of Our Own’ and will be delivered  at the New Art Centre, Roche Court and Chatsworth by artist Laura Ellen Bacon. Over 200 participants will take part in the project and will work directly with Laura to produce drawings of their own ‘imaginary spaces’ inspired by the landscapes they are within and the Artists’ work. An online gallery of the drawings will follow soon. To find out more about the project see here.

The Big Draw Teachers Open Evening

The Roche Court Educational Trust held an open evening in October 2013 for teachers to learn more about the work of the Trust and to join with other teachers to share experiences and practical ideas. A short presentation was given on the work of the Trust and the opportunities offered by taking part in ARTiculation. 

To celebrate the month of the national initiative the BIG Draw, teachers had the chance to join in drawing exercises around the Sculpture Park to explore ways of looking at sculpture and they also took part in a large collaborative Teachers’ BIG Draw.

 

The next Teachers Evening will be held on February 10th 2014.  Please email: edu@sculpture.uk.com to book your place.   This event is Free.
