Please come and join us at my latest exhibition, where you can not only view and buy my latest work, but also share in this fantastic fundraising project with Park School.. below is the press release, all about the project . I would love to see you all at the private view for bubbly and nibbles, where I will show you around and explain the project.
Children from Park School in Totnes are working with nationally renowned artist, Anita Nowinska on an inspirational art project, culminating in an exhibition at KEVICC’s Ariel Centre starting on March 18th.
Anita’s first major exhibition in the South West. Generations: A Journey Through Nature runs for over ten days and the private view on the Saturday 21st March will be opened by Totnes poet, and former Park School parent, Matt Harvey.
Anita’s work has been exhibited around the world and she regularly receives private commissions from individuals and organisations, as well as mentoring both children and adults in art and creativity.
““From a young child to a grandparent, seeing the beauty in nature’s details and ones own inner creativity unleashes amazing ideas and potential,” says Anita. “Bringing together three generations at Park School – young children parents and grandparents – and helping to tap into their creativity and produce work to benefit this unique and amazing school is truly inspiring”
As well as encouraging a love of the natural world, the project aims to help pupils enhance self-esteem and understand that their ideas are valuable and valued.
“I want to help each child discover their talent, then take that seed of creativity and nurture it,” continues Anita. “My aim is to inspire the next generation to build careers doing something they love.”
“It’s been a great experience to watch an expert who is really passionate about their work and enable children to work with proper artist’s equipment and learn professional techniques,” says Park School Teacher-in-charge Amanda Bellamy. “We are really excited to have the children’s work featured alongside such a well-known artist; their paintings will be seen (and hopefully bought) by people from around the country.”
“The Generations project with Anita is a great example of Park School’s unique parent/child/teacher relationship,” continues Amanda. “At Park, parents are welcomed and encouraged to be part of the daily life of the school, including collaborating with teachers on projects that can complement and enhance our curriculum.”
100% of the profits from children’s and parent’s work will go toward Park School fundraising. Anita will also be donating 50% of the profits on her own work to Park School to go toward art materials and other projects.Please share this...
