Expressive Arts Week comes to National Star
A vibrant showcase of visual arts, design, sport, multimedia and performing arts was on offer during National Star’s Expressive Arts Week during 4 to 7 July 2016.
The free event, held at our campus in Ullenwood, Cheltenham, invited the local community to experience National Star’s diverse range of learning programmes through a variety of ‘have a look’ and ‘have a go’ activities. From 3D design workshops and print making to puppet theatre and musical performances, there was plenty to entertain and inspire.
Paul Tarling, Area Coordinator for Creative and Performing Arts, said of the showcase, ‘This was a wonderful experience sharing what we do, how we do it and why we do it. Visitors’ eyes were opened to our vibrant and diverse creative projects, and there was a real festival feel. Laughter, wonder, fun and achievement were on show for all to see.’
For the first time ever National Star welcomed The TIG to the event. A unique dance and play environment, it delighted visitors with shimmering colour, a ceiling studded with twinkling blue stars, areas to explore and six dancers waiting to play.
Expressive Arts Week will return in July 2017.
