Join the Young Narrative Armadale Artists for Change – We have the Art NaAc to make your day! An art club for young creatives 12-18 years who’ll work with professional artists in creating posters, zines and art that will be showcased across schools, shops and centres locally about social issues that affect us all. Run by the participants, the group plan to meet regularly to spread the word about compassion, diversity and love for our little part of the world. Visual narratives, using imagery, and graphics with a few simple words is all you need to hopefully make the community sit up and listen. Art speaks wonders!
Julie Fearns-Pheasant a professional artist and teacher ran a successful art class in Armadale called Leos for many years, which resulted in a lovely, close-knit group of experienced, talented teenagers who had developed skills in illustration, digital media and mixed media. Disbanding due to COVID in 2022, they’re ready to start again with a new club. Some of its leading young things now want to share their knowledge and love of art by inviting others to create and be amongst others who understand their passion to create, to care about the world and each other.
Meeting once a month, the group work towards events or happenings to showcase the result and then the series of works are printed and circulated throughout the district. To invite other young adults we’ll have a two-session event in local shopping centres, where teens are invited to participate in a Big Draw Off to start the ball rolling… flyers will be sent out inviting others to become involved in the long term club. The club will then meet regularly to discuss possible projects moving forward where the local artist(s) can advise, support and encourage NaAc to grow in numbers, skills and projects.
Proudly supported by City of Armadale.
