Blueprint Arts has partnered with Pageant on Paper to host free drawing workshops in local communities.
Pageant on Paper is a celebration of amazing women both past and present, and your opportunity to learn how to sketch a beautiful drawing and add it to a 9-metre-long artwork.
When finished, it will be transformed into an interactive website that acts as a virtual exhibition of the artwork, inviting users to find out more about the women depicted.
Lead by theatre designers and artists Laura Cordery & Eleanor Field.
Stay tuned and follow us on social media to hear about future events/workshops with Pageant on Paper.
creative ways into work
Our Creative Ways into Work (CWIW) programme aims to help young people to develop their core skills through the medium of film and film-making.
The 3-month programme encourages participants to take an initial idea all the way through the production process to watching the finished creation at a cinema.
The film-making process involves everything from project planning to budgeting, problem-solving, teamwork, and giving and receiving constructive criticism. It is inspiring to see how confidence grows and self-expression blossoms, and how people learn to react positively. Then at the end, you get the pride of completing a project and gaining a qualification.
what does the programme mean to its young participants?
When asked, one participant said, “I’ve become more sociable by talking to people and sharing my ideas.” Another told us, “I have more knowledge on camera work and I know how to use it in a more advanced way.”
Thanks to their newfound knowledge, resilience and self-worth, participating in a programme like CWIW can mean a more positive future and a readiness for the workplace.
