The past fortnight we have been very lucky to have a student from Halewood Centre for Learning working alongside us. Rachel has been assisting with the arts administration, the Junior Artists club, helping to update the blog and also working alongside one of our other volunteers Sophie and her company Strange Case Collective.
Rather than having us type out what it is Rachel is interested in and what she has enjoyed this week, we thought we'd give her the opportunity to write up her own blog post for the website... We would like to begin this post by saying a huge thank you to Rachel as she has helped out a lot over the past two weeks and fit in perfectly with Halewood Arts Association. I will hand over now to Rachel...
In the past two weeks I have learnt a lot about the bushiness side of art, I wanted my work experience to be art related because it is something I have always enjoyed, currently take it as a subject in school and want as an aspect in my future. The people of Halewood Arts have been openly friendly and helpful in advising about a number of things like; making contacts and networking, organising events and possible career options.
I had the option to work with Sophie in panting props for a live music event threshold heavy with her company; Strange Case Collective. guitars shown here:
Overall it has been a very valuable experiences. Ive enjoyed working with the greatt kids; who are so friendly and well behaved, learning more about the community and taking part in Strange Case Collective. Couldn't have been with better people.. THANK YOU!
