|The TRACK PROJECT: Free art workshops for children and young people|
|In Summer and Autumn 2012 Lewisham Arthouse presented the TRACK PROJECT, a series of free workshops for young people exploring movement held at Lewisham Arthouse. This was an opportunity for young people to work with professional artists to develop and strengthen creative skills, working in a variety of media, including: animation, drawing, dance, sculpture and sound. The TRACK PROJECT was kindly funded by Lewisham Council.|

Saturday 1 September 2012 for 10-15 year olds,10 - 4pm (with a short lunch break)
Part Four of the Track Project was a group collaboration to imaginatively transform everyday materials into a psychedelic giant kite under the instruction of professional installation artist, Natasha Rosling. The day covered:
- A brief history of flying machines, and the basic physics behind wind catching and aero-dynamic design.
- Experimenting with colour and form to express identity in design.
- The practicalities of transferring ideas and sketches into three dimensional structures.
- Ingenious techniques to make strong structures from paper and other recycled materials.
- Testing the final structure in the public space for its attempt at flight, and documenting the process.
Part three of the Track project brings two eras of technology together.
Q. Take an early 19th century optical toy and combine it with a DJ record Deck.
What do you get?
A. The phonotrope!
Spin your drawings to life with animation & sound duo ‘Sculpture’ and visual artist Amanda Francis. You will be introduced to the zoetrope, the world of vinyl records and basic animation techniques. You will be encouraged to collage crazy kaleidoscope visuals and take part in the making of a soundscape.
Materials and equipment are provided but please do bring any sounds that we can sample, for example vinyl records, CDs, cassettes and anything else you can think of…use your imagination!
For more information email email@example.com.
Using Animation tutor Victor Opeyokun and visual artist Terence Humphrey will guide participants through traditional animation drawing methods. The workshops are free and all materials will be provided.
The first two workshops took place on 26 May 2012 under the title INTERLOCKING:
Morning session 5-10 years, 10am - 12.30pm
Afternoon session 10-15 years, 2pm - 4.30pm
Using the Olympics as a creative springboard and a fun word association game, each participant will contribute to a giant storyboard. Participants will experiment with sculptural materials, words, movement and sound in this exciting workshop taught by professionals. This is a unique opportunity to explore different creative disciplines and how they relate to each other in an energetic and imaginative environment. Working as a team and individually your creations will be displayed to the public at The Arthouse Gallery on 27 May. Gain skills and have fun at The Arthouse!
LEWISHAM ARTHOUSE EDUCATION PROJECT 2010

This event took place on 17 July 2010 as part of the Brockley Food Fair at Friendly Gardens. During the day-long event we worked with children and young people, with over 100 participants over the course of the day.
Inspired by the work of that well known 'foodie' renaissance painter Arcimboldo, we created a huge gallery of portraits and self-portraits using paper plates, collaged dried foods and vegetable prints.
