Count Art II: Early Intervention with Art
With calligraphy and marbling we aim to attract young people in Tower Hamlets to motivate them to achieve goals in their lives and to be more engaged within the community.
Our project involves inspiring and motivating young girls who are at risk of being drawn to violent and disruptive behaviour as well as countering any encouragements filtrated by negative thoughts, by setting up workshops, to allow young people to get engaged with arts. We aim to do this through a form of art therapy, marbling and calligraphy in particular and are in contact with renowned artists in these fields.
Count Art II: Early Intervention with Art has been successfully completed in collaboration with Big Give and Docklands Community Organization based in Tower Hamlets. The project spanned three weeks with 40 girls taking part. After the workshop, an exhibition took place that showcased the pieces of art created during the project by the participants. Parents and guardians also participated in the exhibition and gave favourable feedback. Finally, a certificate of participation was given to each participant, and the girls prepared a thank-you card using water marbling and calligraphy techniques they learned, which they gave as a present to the instructors. All participants gave positive feedback regarding the fun learning experience and the enjoyable atmosphere of the Count Art II project.
