We’re excited to announce we’ll be hosting a series of Creative Arts workshops in July at the Old Library, Mansfield.

The workshops take place during school time between 12 and 20 July and are open to any R.E.A.L. learners, no matter what they study.

James Mills, Creative Arts Provision Manager at R.E.A.L. said: “The aim of the week is to raise the profile of the Arts to learners, and expose them to new skills and experiences that will hopefully create new passions and ambitions within them.”

There are four workshops for learners to join in on the following dates and times.

Drumming workshop: 12 July, 10am – 12pm

Live music performance and Q&A: 12 July, 1pm – 2:30pm

Dance workshop: 19 July, 10am – 12pm

Graffiti workshop: 20 July, 10am – 12pm & 1pm – 3pm

Artists ALT BLK ERA and Jess Fisher will perform live and share their experiences in the music industry. Nottingham sister duo, ALT BLK ERA have played at Glastonbury and Jess Fisher is a pioneering and self professed disabled musician who is part of the Able Orchestra who have played at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

James said: “We have selected industry professionals who are based in and around our locality who will deliver bespoke experiences outside what we normally offer here at R.E.A.L. Creative Arts.”

All learners are welcome to come along to any of the sessions, please chat to your Learning Manager to book on to a workshop.
