During September and October 2020, taster workshops were held at Grange Pavilion to offer residents mini creative arts experiences.
The workshops offered experiences in sketching, landscape painting, plastercast and ceramics and were lead by artists Paul Edwards, Jane Hubbard, Deborah Aguire Jones and Kyle Legall.
The aim of the project, funded by National Lottery Awards for All programme and Cardiff Bay Rotary Club, was to bring people together who might have never experienced art before to develop a creative community in Grangetown, based at Grange Pavilion.
To celebrate the output from the Art Party sessions, a two-week exhibition of the work is being held at Grange Pavilion from May 27th to 10th June 2021.
This was the second phase of the project, following a community engagement art project held over the summer of 2019 in Grange Gardens to create artwork for the hoarding boards surrounding the construction of the new Grange Pavilion Community Centre and bring residents closer to the build. The initial phase of the project was funded by Cardiff University’s Community Gateway project.
