In 2017 we ran 15 workshops in schools to inspire young artists to be even more creative, enterprising and innovative – as well as have fun. The theme for Purbeck Young Artists 2017 was ‘A moment in time’ and was chosen to give students the maximum scope to explore their imaginative range; encouraging them to draw inspiration from a wide range of sources and interpret the theme from varied perspectives. The range of workshops spanned textiles, metal work, photography, dance, ink painting, sewing, mosaics and clay modelling. Some wonderful ideas emerged as can be seen below:
The artwork produced in the workshops was put on display in a dedicated area at Rollington Barn.
