Come to Playground instead!
Because our brand new season of artists’ get-togethers starts with a blast.
Having celebrated our 2nd birthday back in June, we’re now in our 3rd year and we have big plans, big changes and big surprises for all of you. It’s only normal after all:
Two-year-olds use their motor skills to explore the creative arts. They make sounds by banging and shaking instruments and household items. They enjoy dancing upon request, doing finger plays and acting out chants and songs. Children this age are also gaining control over their voices and will join in singing the refrains of their favorite songs. With art, they enjoy the sensory pleasures of the art materials and focus on the process of creating art, rather than the final product. link
Like proper 2 year-olds then, we’re planning some banging, some singing, some drawing and writing:
- Mike Blow is visiting us all the way from Plymouth with a Share My Toys, with his main toys being weather-driven instruments and home-built instruments. Mike likes sounds, installations and things you interact with and you can discover more about his work here.
- Diana Moore, poet, performer and playwright, chose a mix of Uncooked/Chemical Reaction to get you interested in her “A Visitor to the Forest” – a poem designed for performance and inspired by Paolo Uccello’s painting “The Hunt in the Forest” (based at the Ashmolean). Here‘s more on Diana.
- Hannah Davis loves drawing, books and cafes and she’s bringing all these things together for The Big Draw in October. She’s looking for contributors, comrades and general good, creative, drawing-loving team-mates. More about The Big Draw here and if you’re curious about Hannah click here.
See you on Tuesday 23rd, at 7pm at the Old Fire Station as always. We’re going bimonthly from now on, so catch the ball now or you’ll have to wait for another 2 months, and who wants that.
Can’t wait to see you there.
