Stour Valley Arts

Stour Valley Arts has grown slowly and carefully, successfully establishing a unique creative voice over the last 17 years.

Since 1994, SVA has commissioned artists to make sculptures within Kings Wood and also other kinds of artworks. Artists who are particularly responsive to the nature of this working forest are invited to spend long periods here.

Kings Wood is a 1500-acre forest in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in Challock, Kent. It is managed by Forest Enterprise for conservation, recreation and timber production.

In 2011 SVA opened a gallery in Ashford town centre where it holds exhibitions and events for families and artists.

Turner Contemporary, Stour Valley Arts and Canterbury City Council Museums and Galleries Service are delighted to launch Maths Through Pattern, a pilot resource that explores how to use pattern in contemporary and historical art, museum specimens and the natural environment to teach maths.

Drawing on Stour Valley Arts commissions, the collections from Canterbury Museums and the exhibition Superabundant at Turner Contemporary the resource, designed by artist Katie Beinart, is intended to complement and strengthen visits to each of the venues.

The project is part of a policy of collaboration and partnership working between the three Kent based cultural organisations to strengthen the cultural offer to local schools.Research has shown that good preparation and follow up work deepens the effectiveness of learning outside the classroom.

The resource has been generously funded through museums and galleries strategic commissioning and is part of the Enquire research programme supported by Engage.

It can be downloaded here http://www.scribd.com/doc/108812678
