Laing Art Gallery - Family Arts Facilitator

This role takes place at the Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle

We will need volunteers every Wednesday during the school holidays at the Laing Art Gallery.

you will be needed between 9:30 AM and 2:30 PM. The events themselves run from 10 AM to 2 PM.

This role is part of our family events programme, and supports the Learning Team to deliver a number of activities on event days (such as the very successful and popular Make & Take at Laing) which take place during school holidays.

The duties include facilitation of simple art/craft activities for families to drop into during school holidays. These activities are prepared and materials are sourced in advance. The activities will be shown to the volunteer and explained thoroughly at the start of each event. The role also involves supporting set up/tidy up before/after the event, engaging visitors and explaining the activities to children and their parents/carers and offering support in them creating an artwork to take away

Successful volunteers would be invited to a briefing before the volunteer role takes place delivered by a member of the Laing/Shipley Learning Team, who will also give an orientation of the areas that they would be based in the building/s. This training will be approximately 1 hour in length and will be scheduled in w/c 14 October. (We will schedule a specific date/time for this closer to the time, once we know how many people are interested)
