Engaging with young people in Wales

Engage Cymru and Contemporary Art Society for Wales project, 'Letting in the Light'

From April 2017 Engage Cymru will deliver a 12-week intensive animation project in partnership with Cyfarthfa Castle Museum & Gallery, Pen y Dre High School and artist animator Gerald Conn to mark the Contemporary Art Society for Wales’ 80th anniversary.

 

Pupils will bring a number of paintings acquired from CASW to life through animation creating innovative interpretation resources for the gallery which will sit alongside the original paintings.

 

This project has been inspired by the ‘Animating Art History’ programme initiated by the Courtauld Institute. The screening premier will take place at the Red House, Merthyr on 8 July.

 

An update will follow soon. In the meantime, take a look at this selection of images from our current animation project at Cyfarthfa Castle Museum & Art Gallery.
