October Gallery Education Volunteer
October Gallery has been instrumental in bringing to worldwide attention many of the world’s leading international artists, including El Anatsui, Rachid Koraïchi, Romuald Hazoumè, Nnenna Okore, Laila Shawa and Kenji Yoshida. The Gallery promotes the very best in contemporary art from around the planet. The Education Department is inclusive of all ages from under 5’s to PGCE students and delivers a wide range of activities. Julia assists in supervising the children in art interpretation and making activities. Youngsters develop cultural and spatial awareness, dexterity, abstract thinking, and even math skills through the workshops.
Through volunteering at October Gallery Julia has gained educational and community arts experience, as well as developing new craft and presentation skills.
