Hoxton Free Art School

As part of  Discover Young Hackney PEER partnered up with local charity Shoreditch Trust to run the Hoxton Free Art School on three Saturdays in February 2013.

A Level students from local schools in the borough were given an insight into the different possible pathways into a career in the visual arts alongside gallery visits and the opportunity to work with Hackney-based artist Johnny Bunting. On Saturday 16 February the group ran a market stall on Hoxton Street Market where passers by had the opportunity to make their own works of art among the stalls.

Following on from these pilot sessions we will continue to run opportunities over the coming months in the form of studio visits, gallery trips and discussions. If you are aged between 15 and 19 years old please get in touch to find out more at participate@peeruk.org
