Nu Gen: Art Group for 11 yrs +

Tuesdays → 5pm- 6.30pm
11+ yrs

Nu Gen is a weekly art group for those aged 11 - 16 years old. It takes place every Tuesday evening and is led by artist Alice Dansey-Wright.

Each we begin by looking at an artist and their work - a chance to discuss their style, themes and what materials they use. This leads to the group having the chance to experiment with materials and get creative.

If you are interested in drawing, painting or sculpture - or just like being creative - Nu Gen is for you.

No experience is required and everyone is welcome. 

Visit our Latest section of the website you’ll find a blog post on some of the activities the group did previously during some online sessions.

If you would like more information please email info@platform-online.co.uk for details.

Please do not travel to Platform if you feel unwell or have any of the symptoms associated with Covid-19. 

You are welcome to continue mask wearing in indoor public spaces in line with government and public health advice, though this is no longer a legal requirement.

Kayla, member of Nu Gen said: I like that Nu Gen lets me show my style and inspires me to make and create art. I have been keeping creative at home with the inspiration we are given each week”.

Alice, leader of Nu Gen: “I work in both art and design and this includes painting murals, designing textiles and teaching art classes. At Nu Gen we look at all different topics, artists and techniques during Nu Gen - it’s a friendly group and we have lots of fun. Art is for everyone - there is no ‘right’ way to draw or be creative - the main thing is to get started and see what happens!

“A few ideas to try at home– focusing on kitchen inspiration! Draw your weekly shop or the contents of your fruit bowl/snack cupboard. Can you make art with food? Try making something simple with dried goods such as lentils, pasta and rice. Take a look at the work of Manami Sasaki and Haneefah Adam for inspiration”.
