AFTER SCHOOL ART CLUB WITH ALEX MYERS

Wednesday 25th November 2015
Saatchi Gallery Education Room

Alex set up the After School Art Club to give children space in their busy schedule to slow down, make some art, have fun and generally develop confidence in their own creativity and ideas. She loves teaching children and firmly believes that being creative from an early age can give a child real self-confidence and an original outlook in life. Art and design surround us in the city and children love to engage with it.
A degree in Graphic Design and Illustration at the prestigious Central St Martins School of Art in London gave Alex the springboard to work in many different areas of the media and art world. She kicked off her career as part of the exhibitions team at The Saatchi Gallery then focused on picture research and picture editing, specializing in fashion, art and architecture.
Alex is the parent of an adorable Miniature Schnauzer called Minnie and you can follow their adventures on Instagram @minnieandalex

East meets West across the education divide when four London teenagers compete for a prestigious scholarship. As they venture across the capital into unfamiliar territories, friendships are tested, aspirations are challenged and each is forced to decide what matters most. Will the best candidate win or will their postcodes keep them in their place?
This vibrant, timely and touching new work, by award-winning playwright Ade Solanke, takes the pulse on coming-of-age in an increasingly divided city.
Ade Solanke's previous play, Pandora's Box, premiered at Arcola in 2012 and returned as part of a national tour in 2014. It was nominated for Best New Play in the OffWestEnd Theatre Awards and for the 2014 Nigeria Prize for Literature.
Written and directed by: Ade Solanke
Producer: Hannah Tookey
Casting Director: Caley Powell
Assistant Director: Maa Yarkor-Addo
Set and Costume Designer: Anna Lewis

Similarities / differences within class, race, postcodes.
