Art News
Recording Bedford

On Wednesday afternoon, 9th December, Deirdre Porter-Hanson, a local professional artist, will be running a special “Recording Bedford” workshop for our PLACE youngsters. Groups will be the same ones as those organised for the recent Bedford Archives workshop (a reminder of the two groups will go on the PLACE website shortly). It is important for Art parents to confirm with Gerry whether or not their youngsters will be attending Deirdre’s workshop, so that we know how many to expect and can plan and resource appropriately. Times for the two sessions, which will take place at the Scout Centre, are (1) 1.00pm-2.30pm and (2) 2.45pm-3.15pm.

These two sessions will provide an exciting opportunity for our PLACE youngsters to work with a skilled, inspirational and highly-experienced local artist. Gerry hopes that all of the youngsters will attend: they should bring along their art kits, sketchbooks and their materials relating to Bedford for their collages, to add to the materials that will be provided during the workshops.

Gerry has issued a letter about the workshop and asks that parents confirm their youngsters’ attendance by signing the workshop form at the Scout Centre during Art sessions this Friday, 4th December.
