High Peak Community Arts

Art : High Peak Community Arts are proud to present their first early years arts project,
For the Love of Books.
  The project aims to promote a joy of books with early years children and their families, who can sign up for sessions with professional artists. 
The artists have been asked to choose their favourite children’s book and develop fun, creative and open ended activities that animate the book further. 
The first sessions will be running at Gamesley Early Excellence Centre in October, where artist Anthony Hall will be making drawing robots with the families. Artist Katy McCall, who has a background in early years learning, will be bringing a range of unusual materials for children to play and experiment with. The session will be based on the book “Robots, Robots Everywhere” by Sue Fliess.
High Peak Community Arts are thrilled to be planning this early years work, supported by Awards for All from the Big Lottery and also the Clore Duffield Poetry and Literature Awards. 
All of the sessions will be designed to enable families and children to develop confidence in their creativity and nurture a love of books through playful and enjoyable activities. 
This programme of workshops will be rolled out in New Mills, Fairfield and Gamesley between October 2015 and July 2016.
