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

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.
