After School Clubs
As part of our Outreach service we are able to provide enrichment activities and after school art clubs. We have kept several slots free on our timetable . Art clubs can be targeted at any Key Stage and any art, design or craft theme (subject to available space, equipment and resources).
Schools could decide to run Arts Award (see above)through either extra-curricular enrichment or an after school club. The tutor Dawn is an Arts Award adviser, currently registered to deliver Bronze and Silver Arts Award. This means she is able to deliver and assess Arts Award in your school and register your school as an Arts Award centre.

Pendle Vale College Summer School 2016
ARTPAD hosted two workshops over a day at Pendle Vale College, Nelson. The activities were aimed at new learners, making the transition from Primary School to Secondary School. Workshop 1 was a Banksy Graffiti Workshop where students learnt about the graffiti artist Banksy and then went on to design their own stencils and cut them out and use some recut stencils from a street art book.
Workshop 1 was a 'Banksy Graffiti' workshop and students found out about the artist Banksy before going on to design their own stencils and safely cut them out and they also used some pre-cut stencils from a street art book. Students learned how to stencil in black and white and add touches of colour using paint pens.
Workshop 2 was a 'Wire Sculpture' workshop and students looked at some wire sculpture artists and then produced a sample piece incorporating different wire bending and joining techniques. Students then chose an animal and shaped it out of wire before adding tissue paper to enhance and strengthen the structure.
