Macclesfield Community ArtSpace presents:

 You Too!

This week we have been having fun and getting creative in Jean’s Photo Shoot Workshop making like David Bailey, photographing things as diverse as “Time” “Pink” and “Water”,  also mystery objects from odd angles and ourselves as Borrowers!  In Patty’s Monoprinting workshop we made prints based on ourselves and other existing images and also free form as below.

There are two more workshops to go.This afternoon Saturday 9th May 1 till 3 pm, in her Junk workshop Jane will be helping you to make pictures and sculptures from recycled and found materials.

On Wednesday 13th , 7-9 pm Patty will be leading  a mono-printing and mixed media workshop.  This is a follow up to last week’s monoprinting, however is also open to new people.  Have a go at monoprinting or use acrylic, pastels and collage to create mixed media pieces.

There is still room for You  in our free sessions at ArtSpace, come and get creative, no previous experience is needed.

The You Too! Project

On Saturdays during April we took ArtSpace on the road running free community arts events around Macclesfield, following these we are hosting a series of Free open sessions at ArtSpace  for anyone  to attend, those under 14 years must be accompanied by an adult .

People  sometimes  feel that art is just for the privileged few.  We hope to let ArtSpace prove this is wrong! Everyone appreciates art of one kind or another and everyone has creativity. The You Too! project is for anyone who wants the chance to do arts and crafts.  That includes you – yes , You Too!.

On three Saturdays in April, from 11.00am to 3.00pm we took our Road Show around different parts of Macclesfield:

On April 11th  we were at The Church of the Resurrection,  Church Way, Upton Priory.

On April 18th we visited Hurdsfield Community Library, 7 Hurdsfield Green.

And on April 25th  it was the turn of Community Building,  Mayfield Avenue, Moss Rose.

At each session local people were able to meet the ArtSpace team and have a go at arts and crafts including photography, making mosaics and art from junk etc.  Artists were on hand to provide advice and to help people to create their masterpieces.  There was a street games artist on hand too,  also badge making, origami and many other small crafts.


 Art is for everyone

Here are a few pics from the road shows and workshops.
