Discovery College: Photo Club (October – December 2021)
Discovery College returned in autumn 2021, in partnership with Photoworks, Brighton.
About Photo Club
This course offered the chance to see your work online and you didn’t need any prior photography or creative skills or experience! All you needed to take part was a Smartphone or camera and access to Zoom through a Smartphone, laptop or computer.
Photo Club was facilitated by artist Lynn Weddle, peer mentor Amiee Staples and mental health practitioner Rachel Hines.
Photo Club was a blended creative experience, delivered in person onsite at De La Warr Pavilion and online.
Art Lab (February – April 2020)
Art Lab was a pilot series of weekly sessions for 14-20 year olds experiencing social, emotional or mental health challenges. It was led by creative practitioner Annis Joslin and mental health specialist Rivkah Cummerson, and delivered in partnership with Sussex Discovery College.
Art Lab introduced young people to creative skills and techniques and encourage open-ended experimentation through a range of disciplines (e.g. sculpture, photography, drawing, printmaking, collage and animation). Through visits to the exhibitions at the De La Warr Pavilion, the group explore and unravel some ideas and processes found within the galleries. Art Lab will nurture talent, confidence, resilience, friendships and health self-management in a relaxed, flexible and inquiring atmosphere.
Art Lab was kindly supported by the Red Hill Trust.
