Here are the details for each session.
Led by Jo Smith, these after school sessions focus on all aspects of creative writing, including poetry, prose, songwriting, and scriptwriting. They cover a wide range of writing styles and genres; whether you want to write the next bestseller, the next No.1, or simply like to jot down your thoughts at the end of the day. All abilities are welcome: all you need is the desire to get writing.
Aimed at those who have an interest in multimedia (such as film, photography and graphic design). This evening session will allow those of all abilities to have a space to learn, refresh skills or enhance their skills. You will work on various creative media projects, individually and in groups, with the potential to gain work experience and more.
Art Tank takes place in the art classroom upstairs, and is instructed by professional artist Anna Clucas. This after school art group involves collaborative projects and design across all types of visual art: painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, crafts, graphic design and decorative art.
Connections is the National Theatre’s annual, nationwide youth theatre festival. The programme has been established for 29 years with a celebrated history of championing the talent of young people from across the British Isles.
