SAATCHI GALLERY EDUCATION PROJECTS AND WORKSHOPS

In preparation for the Chelsea Festival in October, groups of Year 4 and 5 pupils from Marlborough Primary School and Christchurch have been gaining inspiraton for their exhibtion to be displayed in the Education Gallery.





During the Summer Holidays the Saatchi Gallery welcomed St Vincent's Family Project Summer Art Group. An exhibition of their work is on display in the Education Room.







In April the Saatchi Gallery held a free painting course for young people aged 14 -16









During Half Term the Education Room at the Saatchi Gallery was filled with families and young people taking part in our workshops, interactive tours and activities. A highlight was our Big Draw event 'Faces into Focus', some photos of the fun we had are below.











During the Summer the Saatchi Gallery will be holding 'Pieces For Peace' workshops on Wednesday afternoons. You will have the chance to create your own image of peace that will be part of a running peace wall in London. This is a global project, created by CITYarts, which has already engaged over 5,500 young people from over 62 countries world wide.

As part of this project a Peace Wall mural will be created in Hackney between July and September. For more information and to find out how you can get involved please contact education@saatchigallery.com or visit http://www.cityarts.org/Pieces-for-Peace/

Below you can see images of the travelling exhibition currently displayed in the Education Gallery on Level 2 and in the Education Room on the Ground Floor Level at the Saatchi Gallery.







MUSIC AT THE SAATCHI GALLERY

Gesamkunstwerk: New Art From Germany was the inspiration for an innovative musical collaboration between The Purcell School and Queenswood school. The project was called Musikkunstwerk, both schools selected talented young composers to compose music inspired by the art in Gesamkunstwerk. The students produced music that reflected, commented on and even reacted against the art that they selected as inspiration.

British conductor James Ross directed the young composers and comments: 'The composers have succeeded in taking radically different approaches to their chosen art works. The Saatchi Gallery's Gesamkunstwerk Exhibition shows the rich and diverse range of contemporary German art; the composers' responses are an equally fascinating tribute to the creativity of today's leading young musicians.'

On the 22nd February the students performed their compositions in front of a live audience at the Saatchi Gallery.

SHAKESPEARE AT THE SAATCHI GALLERY



The artist Tom de Freston and the poet Kiran Millwood Hargrave ran a series of workshops with the exhibition' The Shape of Things to Come' at the Saatchi gallery. School children were given a unique opportunity to explore Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer's Night Dream' within the context of the exhibition. Working throughout the gallery and the education centre children made paintings and collages as well as engaging with the exhibition and text through physical theatre, group discussion and creative writing.

Tom de Freston has been awarded the Leverhulme Artist in Residence position at Cambridge University, a position previously held by Ruth Padel. De Freston is also the current Artist in Resident at the Leys School, and lectures and supervises in the History of Art faculty, Cambridge University. In January 2011 his two year project with Christ's College Chapel culminated in the unveiling of two large scale site specific paintings situated in the gold frames behind the altar. The publication which accompanies this show sees contributions on de Freston's work by Sir Nicholas Serota and Rowan Williams, amongst others. This is the latest in a series of monographs on his work over the past two years. His work and these publications can be seen at www.tomdefreston.co.uk

Kiran Millwood-Hargrave is a Cambridge graduate and a poet and writer. She is currently working on a body of poems for the British Shakespeare Association (BSA) with Tom de Freston. These will be shown at the BSA annual conference in September 2011. She has also edited a collection of poems, 'Ekphrasis', which John Mole called 'a fascinating anthology'. Millwood-Hargrave has recently completed a research project on the use of visual art in the teaching of Shakespeare.
