Each week, led by art teacher Peach, a new artist will be explored and with that new materials and techniques in a space that allows the art club members to try things with no expectations or outcomes.
A little introduction from St Ives art club teacher:
My name is Laura Peach and I used to teach art, graphics and engineering at a local secondary school. I loved being a teacher and after leaving the school setting, I was running art clubs and workshops for children from the Truro art shop with great success. I have spent the last four years raising my own little artists and am now able to start my own Art club here in St Ives which I am very excited about, and I hope you are too.
As a teacher I was set to create clear outcomes and all the pupils had to follow a set of instructions to create the same piece of artwork. Art club is different. I will introduce them to artists and materials and techniques and show them examples of what they can create and if they wish to follow my lead then awesome, however there are no rules to art club creations – so if they want to use the hour to create a robot with the materials given – then that is awesome too.
