Extra Art Projects
Since living in Ho Chi Minh City Jack has self initiated and ran woodcut workshops for adults across the city. Encouraging participation from both the expat and the local community. These workshops are a chance for creative individuals to share the experience of learning a new craft. All participants are encouraged to bring an idea to the table then draw, carve and print the block in the same afternoon. Using example of his own work, previous student's examples and his own knowledge of the medium Jack guides them by giving them new techniques and methods to experiment with.
For the last 3 years he has also worked closely with Vietnam Australia International School (VAS) to create their summer school art program. His main responsibilities are designing all content, listing total materials, recruiting and training teachers whilst teaching specialist workshops for students from early kindergarten up to upper secondary and generally overseeing the implementation of the program.
For his school programs he aims to bring unique, interesting and usually unseen before processes in a school environment such various printmaking processes such as frottage, relief, mono, 3D art and many more! All with an environmental underlying message. Unfortunately due to school policies no photos of these projects can be displayed on this site.
Change VN / Wild Aid Vietnam - Creative workshops
In May 2019 I was personally invited to join 'Wild Aid Vietnam' and 'Change VN's' project to help spread animal awareness issues particularly focused on the elephant, pangolin and the rhino. The other guys painted murals up and down the country whilst I joined for the Nha Trang date to give a workshop to 20+ students from the local youth. It was great fun! I hope to join these positive events in the future.
