Tel: +44 (0)7813312603
Mangotsfield Secondary School is delighted to be collaborating with the arts group BSpoke16 for a community event 'A Creative Arts Day'.
The school is hosting over 30 creative local artists and makers who will have stalls selling their creations. Dawn Beedle, Head of Art, is keen to support and be part of the drive of the arts in the community. The talented artists and makers involved include printmakers, painters, fused and stained-glass artists, jewellers, ceramicists and more.
On Saturday 9 July, 11am-4pm, the school is open to visitors to celebrate the Creative Arts. There will be an exhibition of the year 11 art and photography work and the school will have creative stalls, including 'Mango Prints' alongside the local artists. Students will be selling their artworks including prints created in years 7, 8 and 9 lessons and in art club. The money raised from the sale of the artworks and the raffle will be invested back into the art department to buy more specialist equipment and opportunities. Thus widening the creative opportunities for all students, such as paying for visiting artists to deliver workshops in school. This is a fantastic opportunity for students to take pride in their work being admired and bought by the local community.
As the day celebrates all the arts there will be the schools 'Spectacular Performing Arts Competition' happening throughout the day on the stage. Students having gone through auditions will be singing, dancing and performing drama pieces for the public to enjoy and vote upon. The Creative Arts day encompasses the school's ethos around community, respect, and love of learning, which staff and students are greatly looking forward to sharing with the community.
The BSpoke16 team, professional artist Catherine Williams and Papercutter/Designer Karen Davies, has previously organised a succession of outdoor art trails – supporting local makers whilst in challenging times. They're delighted to collaborate with Mangotsfield School and are planning to impress and inspire you with the creative talent in our local area.
