Arts Award Exhibition 2017- Chisenhale Primary School

17 July, 2017  |  Featured, Public Programme, Schools

For several years now the school’s programme has been led by artist Sara Heywood and run in partnership with Chisenhale Art Place. The programme aims to inspire young people to grow their arts and leadership talents: it’s creative, valuable and accessible.

An important part of the programme is the special opportunity the children have to visit working artists in their studios, this allows the children to talk directly with the artist and see their work first hand – this year they visited Chisenhale Studio artists Diana Taylor and Sam Hodge.

On the 9th of June the children were surprised by a taster session with Sam Hodges, she took materials over to the school and gave the kids a guided demonstration of a printmaking technique favored by her. Each of the children produced several prints which they proudly displayed a the exhibition.

Lawdale School visit Seth Pimlott

19 June, 2017  |  Public Programme, Schools

Lawdale School once again made their annual trek to Chisenhale Studios.  This time, the children and parents of the School’s ever successful Film Project came to meet artist Seth Pimlott, the 2016/17 recipient of our Pete Lloyd Lewis Studio Award.

The visit started with a look around the studio and a talk with Seth about his work, including the screening of a film he had been working on.

The group then took part in a workshop using the mapping technique, to help release their creativity. The children were asked to think of things connected to their response to moving from Primary school to Secondary School, which unleashed some amazing drawings about their fears and hopes.

The Lawdale Film Project introduces children to the world of film making, providing them with the opportunity to make  decisions about the process at every level. Participating children explore every required skill – from script writing to story boarding –  and experience every crew role, from director and camera person to clapper board. They also get to do all the acting. The project has been running for the past 5 years and is led by film artist Lisa Nash and supported both by Lawdale School and Chisenhale Art Place.

On 7th March 2016, children and parents from the Film Project* at Lawdale School were given a special opportunity to visit artist Shezad Dawood in his Chisenhale studio.

The visit started with a look around the studio and a talk with Shezad about his work, in which he shared some of his ideas and film techniques. The group then tried their hands at “storyboarding”, before Shezad opened a magic trunk of items from his early career – when his art was more performance based.  Using the objects as props, the children came up with some truly amazing film ideas which they presented.

The second screening for the hugely successful film project took place at Lawdale School on the 2nd of July.

The assembly hall was filled with excitement and anticipation, with children, parents and teachers eager to see the films they had heard so much about. Especially as many students had seen the film makers filming throughout the year, so were curious to see the finished results.

The three films were shown and the audience had opportunity to ask question or make comments.  Many of the questions asked were about the special techniques used, such as time lapse and split screen.

“The films were wicked” said the students.  And the Deputy Head said he had three special letters to describe the three films: W O W
