Suzanne at Jelly has asked me to publicise this, I’ve passed it to some schools I know directly but thought it might be of general interest if you work for or are involved in a school in Reading get in touch with Jelly!
“The SMART 2012 committee are delighted to be able to offer a limited number of FREE arts activities to schools, groups and nurseries in the lead up to SMART 2012 coordinated by jelly. The workshops have been funded by Earley Charities and will include banner and flag making, bunting and willow sculptures.
We will be working with the groups to create artworks that will then be displayed as part of SMART 2012
To apply for one of these workshops please contact the arts workshop coordinator for SMART 2012 firstname.lastname@example.org
A free family festival developed by the 2012 Partnership Board, SMART will be a celebration of sport, music and art for the community to take part in and come along to the Thames on ‘Super Saturday’, the middle weekend of the Olympic Games.
