Thanet College special project
Thanet College Student Project View
Thanet College’s 2nd Year Extended Diploma in Art and Design students worked on their interpretation of our current exhibitions Turner and the Elements and Hamish Fulton: Walk.

This special project shows how they conducted their own walks around Margate, inspired by Hamish Fulton, and the kind of questions that they discussed inspired by Turner and the Elements.

You can print their project and try it out in gallery – print double sided and fold it like a map, with the title page at the front.  For more on the project, please visit their tumblr site at:

Generate DVD Toolkit View
We’ve created a DVD Toolkit for people who work with under 4s in playgroups and nurseries and children's centres. This fantastic resource is free to download and includes information about the Generate project, how to replicate activities and processes and an outline of how the project helps to meet the Early Years Foundation Stage Targets. In 2009, we distributed the DVD free of charge to Children's Centres across Thanet.

Generate was set up in 2007 with a group of Kent artists inspired by the creativity of their children. The project encourages parents and children to make artwork together through listening, sharing and exchanging skills and ideas.
