Children’s artwork a new addition to summer festival lineup in Glasgow

Fri 19th May 2017

Impact Arts’ Young Gallery programme is in full swing for the final project of
the school term!

Bringing together P7 pupils from 3 primary schools in
Glasgow’s East End, the project is building towards a vibrant summer festival
in Alexandra Park on 22nd June 2017.

Our artists have been visiting Haghill Park, Carntyne and St
Thomas’ primary schools to inspire the young people and introduce them to new
ways of creating art.

In the past few weeks, the group have been trying their hand
a light-painting, face paint and customising t-shirts.

The young artists are working on custom t-shirts, flags and interactive
artwork for the event, which will be about celebrating diversity and bringing the
community together.

There will also be a parade, an “around-the-world” photo-booth and giant Jenga.

The project aims to pass on new artistic skills to the children taking part while getting them to think about identity, who they are, and how they fit into their community.
