Experimental Art Sessions

Tue. September 25th 2012 - Fri. December 14th 2012
@  Burnside Gorge Community Centre
The Experimental Art Sessions were a series of instructional art sessions for youth spanning a 10 week period and a partnership between The Fifty Fifty Arts Collective and Burnside Gorge Community Centre. This project was a great opportunity for local artists to reach out into the community and share their skills with the drop-in youth who attended these sessions. The artists have responded positively to the experience, have gained valuable experience teaching youth and have felt a greater connection to the community. For The Fifty Fifty Art Collective, it was a great learning experience in the planning, execution and supervision of a pilot arts program for youth, as well as a partnership with another organisation. The works produced by the youth were impressive, and many new skills were learned.
