Cumnock Heritage Dance Summer School 2011

During the Summer holidays MSCreative were invited by Zara Smith and Helen Duncan from East Ayrshire Councils Creative Minds Team to deliver a series of Graffiti Art workshops during the School Holidays in Cumnock and Kilmarnock. The idea was to fuse Dance and Hip Hop with local heritage, the projects ran for five days in each location beginning with a heritage tour of both towns led by local history experts.
The young people took notes and sketches of points of historical interest along the tour which were then later used to create a heritage backdrop to their Dance Shows. Throughout the week the young people took part in creating individual T Shirt designs , learning spraycan techniques which were used to produce large scale works on MDF for a backdrop to there final dance performance.
Thanks to all the young people from Cumnock and Kilmarnock who took part in this exciting project.
