Shropshire Council are working in partnership with Arts Connect West Midlands (the bridging organisation for the WM) and arts and cultural organisations from across the county, to provide opportunities for more young people to experience quality arts; irrespective of where they live or their social, educational or financial circumstances.
Activity supported by Shropshire Council and Arts Connect West Midlands as part of their local capacity building fund with prior permission of ACWM
‘Scrappies’ (The Shropshire Children’s Scrap Store Recycling & Resource Centre)are delighted to announce that as part of their Short Break provision for this year they will be holding six training days at ‘Scrappies’ premises in Church Stretton. These training days are available to people that work or volunteer at local clubs or groups that provide opportunities to children and young people with disabilities or additional needs.
If you have had a ‘Scrappies’ workshop you will already know the benefits of creative arts activities. This new opportunity will allow those attending a training day to visit the store, look at the kinds of materials available, plan a six week programme and ‘create’ your own art box full of resources. Topics covered will be the ‘creative’ play experience, safety and planning a programme of activities for your own setting and collecting the resources/materials from the store.
The training day will normally run from 10.00am until 3.00pm and will include a light lunch. There will be a small cost to cover the resources/materials you gather for your group.
It is difficult to manage times and days when individual people are available so if you think you might have your own larger group then ring Lesley on 01588 672610 and book the day just for yourselves at a time to suit you. ‘Scrappies’ artists can work evenings, weekends and holidays. Obviously individuals will be welcome to join in with other groups and there is always an advantage in meeting others to share ideas.
Please call Lesley to ask about training days taking place from September 2013 to February 2014.
Creative Workshops for children & young people:
As well as training days for adults, ‘Scrappies’ can also offer a creative workshop session for your group of children and young people. If you haven’t had a creative workshop for your group previously then please contact ‘Scrappies’ as they have nine workshops still available – Halloween and Fireworks are always good themes! 01588 672610
