Documentary – Every Child Is An Artist: Digital Arts

Every Child is an Artist

At the end of last year I was one of a group of artists taking part in Every Child Is An Artist, a project created by Mercurial Dance which aims to develop the skills, ability and imagination of all the children at Oasis Academy Hobmoor (check out this post about what I got up to).

Filmmaker Jamie Sergeant has made a video documenting the digital arts phase of the project, in which you can hear us talking about the kind of work we did with the children, and see some examples of what they made. Here it is for your viewing pleasure!

Visit our page on the Oasis Hobmoor Blog to see what the children have been making; this term they are focusing on visual arts.

Spring Term activities

This term I am continuing to work on a couple of projects at Oasis Hobmoor; I am still working with the Hobmoor TV crew, a small group who report on events and happenings at the school. See our broadcasts here!

I am also working with a group of year 3 and 4 students on Tuesday afternoons who are making some short films to document and promote learning activities at the school – their videos will be posted soon so watch this space!

About Emma Puente

I am a freelance artist mainly working with digital video, regularly managing video productions for both organisations and individuals and specialising in the documentation of arts events, exhibitions and performances and interviews, as well as creating my own films. In my own work, I like to examine the poetry in the commonplace, the beauty that goes unnoticed, and the ‘what if?’ I work with a variety of technologies ranging from high definition broadcast suites to low-cost mobile devices. Clients and employers have included British Library Labs, PQA, NCS The Challenge, Kings College London, Thinktank Science Museum and AL Control Laboratories. I am an independent Arts Award Advisor (trained to Gold level) and have worked with numerous community arts organisations in the UK, sharing my skills with young people interested in media production and the creative industries. I have produced and delivered hundreds of video projects, technology-based workshops and public art events. I also offer services such as media conversion, image editing and occasionally design/illustration work. I have my own equipment and car, and can multi-task like a fiend.
