The Gerald Moore Gallery works with a number of local schools and external organisations in order to extend artistic opportunities to a much wider and diverse audience. The gallery has partnered with the National Autistic Society (Greenwich Branch) to offer free peer support to young people with autism (14-18 years) using art therapy techniques, based in a gallery setting.
The sessions will take place on the second Tuesday of every month, starting on 11 June and run every month until December. Each session takes place after school between 4.00 – 5.30pm.
The Art Group is intended for young people to get together and relax in a creative atmosphere through art making. Attendees will be able to try out different materials in order to draw, paint, print, sculpt or collage. No previous art experience is required as the sessions are designed to be an opportunity to express yourself through art, in a safe space. The sessions will be led by a Health and Care Profession Council (HCPC) registered art therapist currently working in Greenwich schools, together with a NAS volunteer who is a qualified teacher with over 20 years experience of working with children and young people.
Parents are required to remain on site during the sessions and have the opportunity to connect with other families in the area, over refreshments that will be served.
