From February to March 2018, the young people of Blackhall Community Youth Group and Hesleden Guides Group will be experimenting with lots of different art forms, from paint to print, felting to video projection, all inspired by the colourful theme of ‘kaleidoscope’.
The groups are guided by artists Creative Youth Opportunities and BloomInArt​, who will be sharing their artistic skills with the young people and helping them realise their ideas.
All this creativity will result in a large scale installation of artwork at Blackhall Community Centre, that will be officially launched at a the Kaleidoscope Party​ on Tuesday 3 April, 4 – 6pm (see below for details!).
The Kaleidoscope Party will be co-produced by the young people with Chalk​, specialists in creating fun, immersive and accessible creative events for young children and their families.
The young artists’ will be posting updates each week – follow their artistic journey on Instagram here: www.instagram.com/kaleidoscope_eastdurham

The project has been co-produced by the young people of Blackhall Community Youth Group and Hesleden Guides Group, with support from BloomInArt, Creative Youth Opportunities, Chalk, Monk Hesleden Parish Council​ and Blackhall Community Centre​.
