A seminar for educators, artists and academics working in the Early Years

This Moonbeams seminar is open to all working with young children, including educators, artists, creative producers, schools and early years’ settings, arts, cultural and heritage organisations.

It will explore how visual art in all its forms, as well as visits to galleries, can address themes such as ‘how we live with and give voice to difference’.  This ideas can be used creatively with young children, their families, and the community. The key theme also runs through the British Art Show 9 (BAS9) at Wolverhampton Art Gallery and the seminar will include a tour of the exhibition, led by a Guide, using augmented tours on your mobile phone.

There will also be provocations and opportunities for discussion, as well as a practical workshop led by Faye Patrick, an early years’ educator at Our Lady’s Primary Birmingham. This practical session will explore starting points and ideas from a range of stimulus, such as images in books and artists’ work, and provide actual examples of what you can do with children 2-5 years to help shape your early years, and artistic, practice.
