International Art Club

Delivered across two Gateshead schools, International Art Club is an after-school club which brings together pupils from sanctuary-seeking backgrounds with the wider school population. International Art Club builds empathy and intercultural awareness, using art to safely and creatively explore ideas around culture and identity. Sessions encourage conversation, collaboration and understanding between pupils from different backgrounds.

The art club celebrates a diversity of cultural expression with activities coming both from the lead artist and the pupils, including making fruit kaleidoscopes, mandala-inspired petal patterns, print making with flowers and herbs, and origami.
