40 Degreez and Spark 2019
Big thank you going out to Farnham Maltings for choosing all three 40 Degreez clubs in this years spark 2019 community outreach projects! During February and March we had lots of fun learning from professional artists over a range of creative art forms.
In the Session Drummer Master (see above) class our young people had an exciting evening playing audience to a live performance by professional drummer Paul Glover. They also got the opportunity to sit behind his drum kit and have a go themselves with tuition and tips from Paul. The FAB club enjoyed making and creating, and took part in lively dance and games sessions with Stop Gap dance company. Young people from The Hangout club participated in drama and story-telling sessions, and during the Health Hub they learnt about photography and had great fun practicing taking photographs in a professional studio setting. 40 Degreez swayed to the sound of African beats during the Samba Percussion Experience, when a Samba band was formed and enthusiastically took to the stage to play everyone out as parents arrived to pick up their young performers from The Hangout.
The sessions were filmed by talented artist Alex Harvey-Brown and are set to be showcased as part of the spark festival 2019 weekend on Saturday 30 March at Farnham Maltings. spark is the Maltings multi-arts festival for children and young people, bringing everyone together to enjoy, participate, watch and celebrate the arts. Over two days there are FREE workshops and performances for all the family to enjoy.
