Peckham Space’s FREE Art Clubs invite young people from Peckham, London, SE15 to take part in art activities during school holiday periods.
Alongside interactive exhibitions, we run tutor-led workshops exploring different art methods and materials, from collage to drawing to mono-printing. This free resource is available to everyone, but is especially popular with young people and their parents who are keen to get involved fun activities during the day when they’re not at school. We have previously run Art Clubs during the Easter holidays which were attended by almost 900 people. There has been such huge demand for them that we will be running them again during August, and would love to continue at Christmas too.
Peckham Space is London’s newest purpose-built art venue which opened in June 2010 with a new approach to commissioning, making and exhibiting art. Peckham Space is an arts organisation that is part of Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London. When not providing free Art Clubs, we run an artistic programme which commissions artists to create new work in response to working with residents and young people from Peckham, to encourage progression routes for young people into creative higher education as well as increase access to cultural and educational activity in Peckham, London SE15.
