Basildon at 70 Celebration Art Exhibition

Towngate Theatre

Ryedene's very talented artists have showcased the amazing work they created in the Master classes with our Artist Mrs. Anderson. Ryedene was also joined by children from Noak Bridge Primary, Lee Chapel Primary, Phoenix Primary and St. Teresa's catholic Primary.

Ryedene partnered with Basildon Council to organise and curate this incredible event, which also hosted work from Signals Media and the Children's Support Services.

Selected pupils from Ryedene visited Greensted Juniors for six weeks to attend photography Master classes led by Graphic Designer, Mrs. Emma Ellam. The photos they created were also displayed as part of the exhibition.
