Art Workshops with young people who are supported by the charity Children Heard and Seen
During the summer of 2019, artist Sarah Moncrieff led art workshops with children from Children Heard and Seen, a Charity which supports children with a parent in prison. Workshops ran over the period of 2 weeks, and the children had the opportunity to work on watercolour mosaics, palette knife landscape paintings, portraits and experiment with materials such as pastel and acrylic paints.
“Inside Spaces”, an exhibition of work by prisoners and children of prisoners at Cornerstone Arts centre, Didcot, Oxfordshire and featured as part of the Oxfordshire Artweeks festival.
The work that the children produced during the summer workshops together with the work produced by men at HMP Bullingdon following art sessions there with Sarah, was put on exhibition at The Cornerstone Arts Centre in Didcot during October 2019.
The exhibition was really well received and was featured in the Experience Oxfordshire “Top Ten art Picks” for Autumn 2019.
This exhibition was featured in the Oxford Mail 26th April 2019
