We have been working in partnership with RAMM (Royal Albert Memorial Museum) to design and deliver a range of short projects with an arts award focus.
Discover Arts Award week
Working with RAMM to offer a week-long series of workshops, over the February half term 2020. Our lead Artist Cara Roxanne worked with Daisi artists, Monica Shanta Brown, Simon Ripley, and Tanya Morel. Together they led young people on an exploration of RAMM’s fascinating objects and supported their artistic response to re-imagine them. Young people used new found skills to gain their Discover Arts Award through, large scale drawing and painting, creating mandalas, 3D stop motion animations and screen printing.
Digital animation workshops at RAMM
Fun and inspiring workshops to explore the museum’s objects, collect ideas and stimulate a creative response through animations, moving images and digital music.
With Monica Shanta Brown – an accomplished visual artist working across a variety of physical and digital media. Monica worked with young people to support them to draw and make objects and then animate the results.
Cara Roxanne supported new approaches to finding ideas and inspiration within the RAMM’s collections to inform a digital project. She led participants through the process of making an animated picture (GIF) to keep and to share with the world.
Rachel Thame and Deborah Wooleston worked with sound to explore digital technology and to create original soundscapes. Taking inspiration from within the museum capturing and recording sounds and making noises to play back through a computer adding effects and transitions.
