MakeArt, our annual children's exhibition, is definitely one of our favourite times of year. We get all our tutors and students together in one place and have a glass of kid friendly punch or parent friendly mulled wine, a mince pie or 2 and celebrate all their creativity and hard work and the Mayor of Islington comes, just look at those robes!
Check out some pics from the night.

What a talented lot of artists! We can't wait to see what the new term brings in January!
Hooray! It's that time of year again, MakeArt Exhibition! Our annual celebration of all the art work that our young artists produce throughout the year was as fab as ever. Here are some pictures of the night.
The work will be up until the New Year so still plenty of time to check out their hard work!
We are so excited to start planning our annual dance show Montage this week!
Every year at the end of our summer term we put on a dance showcase performance called Montage. All our children and adult dance classes are invited to perform and it is always great fun, and a wonderful way for all our hard working dancers to show friends and family what they have been up to.
As we started to plan we had a little look back at last years show, and we are still blown away by the brilliance of the dancers. Here are a few of our favourite pics from last year
Level 3 Contemporary - Frenzy
Hana Saotome - Rain
Hana teaches our children's Ballet and Contemporary classes and is a professional contemporary dancer
Adult Ballet - Ragtime Ballet
Intro Ballet - Goodnight Sweetheart
Children's Ballet Company - The Stolen Curl
Level 1 Contemporary - Eastern Standard Time
Level 3 Ballet - Waltz of the Hours
Aren't they fab? No wonder we are so excited!
Our Children's showcase exhibition is always such a highlight of the Arts Factory year. Just before Christmas the air and our galleries are filled with excitement as we hang all the fantastic creations our young people have worked so hard on. Every year we are completely blown away by the talent and creativity that springs to life as our Director of Art, Eleanor Pearce, curates the show. Today we have been hanging paintings, just a puppet theatre and an 8 foot ceramic tree to go. Its going to look so fab by Friday!
This years exhibition is even more special, because not only do we have great work from our outreach projects at Tufnell Park and Hugh Myddleton Primary Schools, but at the opening on Friday there will be an extra special performance of Gothic Gargoyles by our Children's Contemporary Company around the showcase Creepy Castle sculpture. And Islington Mayor Richard Greening will be officially opening the exhibition.
It promises to be a great event, but if you can't make it the work will be on show until we close for Christmas on 23rd December
