Criw Celf is funded by the Arts Council of Wales and provides children and young people with an opportunity to develop their artistic skills, working outside of the school environment, and alongside professional artists in a variety of different settings. It offers opportunities for aspiring young visual artists and designers to spend time with their peers and professionals working in the sector to develop and nurture their talent.

 

At Llantarnam Grange we run different programmes throughout the year for Primary, Secondary, Portfolio and Raising the Bar for young people in school years 5-13.

 

Through this we hope to nurture creativity and give a taste of what art, craft and design could be like in further education.

CRIW CELF 2022

 

This year we worked with filmmaker and writer Tom Cardew; sculptor and stop motion animator Jim Parkyn; henna artist and creative practitioner Sam Hussain; and mixed media / digital artist Julia Brzozowska, to explore the themes of Climate Change and Art as a Vehicle for Wellbeing.

 

An exhibition of the results is currently on display in Gallery 2.

 

There will be an opening in the gallery on Friday 2 September 6 – 8pm, and the exhibition will run until the 29 October 2022.
