MakeArt is the exciting annual showcase of children's artwork, created on the MakeArt Programme by artists aged 4 - 16 years old.

About

MakeArt

Exhibition: 7th - 21st December 2018

Private View: 6pm - 8pm 7th December


You are cordially invited to join the Mayor of Islington, Councillor Dave Poyser for the opening of this exciting annual showcase of children's artwork, created on the MakeArt Programme by artists aged 4 - 16 years old.


You will encounter a huge painted tableau of dancing figures inspired by the Venice Carnival made by our MakeArt and Move artists during the summer holidays. There will also be mighty group painting of The Reptile House, where by moonlight the inhabitants have escaped! The centrepiece of the main gallery will be The Vegetable Man sculpture, constructed from all the bounty of harvest in our half term workshop 'Ode to Autumn' and it's story time at the foot of the towering Faraway Tree sculpture. As we are approaching Christmas, you are invited to visit the Toy Shop window to pick your favourite Teddy Bear, created collaboratively by our ArtStart artists. Clay Level one students present an array of succulents and cacti ceramics, while Clay Level two have crafted beautiful vessels with slab building techniques, representing each of their personal tastes and interests.

The Tuesday MakeArt class have made wooden pull string puppets making up a menagerie of creatures, both real and imagined. You can explore a paper mache city, constructed by Thursday MakeArt, with vivid colours and quirky detailing. The MakeMoreArt artists will be presenting beautiful prints inspired by flowers and birds, as well as transcriptions of Henry Moore's Sheep Sketchbook in fine line pen and ominous eye drawings.

This year we are delighted to include examples of work from art clubs held at Hugh Myddelton Primary School and Hanover Primary School, these include  a collection of detailed drawings of skeletons inspired by the decorative Mexican Day of the dead parade, and a flock of owls in charcoal!

The MakeArt Programme is devised and delivered by Islington Arts Factory artists Eleanor Pearce (Director of Art), Kayley Holderness, Josephine Sweeney, and Jude Lacey. We are committed to passing on our skills and unlocking the creative potential in every child through imaginatively engaging theme based projects. We respect the artistic merits of young artists  and consider their works on an equal par to adults artists work.
