Borderland Voices a charity promoting Health and Well-being through the Arts

 

Creative Clubs

wire bugThe project employs qualified artists to lead 2 hour workshops on Saturday mornings for children between the age of 8-11 together with 2 hour weekly evening workshops for children between 11 and 15 years old. The project provides a creative outlet for young people, enhancing their skills and introducing them to produce work in a community setting, thus inducing pride in their surroundings and responsibility for their environment. Apart from introduction to a wide variety of creative activities they have been involved in the creation of artwork which has been on public display.

 

 

 

 

The main aims of the project are to:-

Break down barriers between young people and adults

To foster community spirit and reduce anti-social behaviour

To encourage pride and care of the environment

To increase skills leading to increased self-esteem and aspirations

The children had the opportunity to try collage, graffiti art, model landscapes, street dance, wire sculpture, drama, re-cycled clothing and work in clay.
