Activity Sheets

We’ve pulled together a collection of our favourite activity sheets for you to enjoy at home.

 

Simply print off at home and complete.  The worksheets are in colour (A4 size) but work equally as well in black and white. If you don’t have a printer simply do the activities on whatever paper you have to hand.

Don’t forget to share your drawings, puppets and other activities with us @edgeartsbath #ShareYourEdge

Unintended Consequences

Back in 2018, we hosted two film installations by two artists whose work reflects the complex, entangled nature of the present moment. Maeve Brennan’s LISTENING IN THE DARK  examines human beings’ impact on the natural environment. Its focus is a creature that has often fallen beneath our radar: the bat. Imran Perretta’s film 15 DAYS examines the movement of people looking for a new home. We have two fun activity sheets to do at home.

The Theatre of Robert Anton

In the summer of 2019, we displayed the extraordinary figures of Robert Anton, a little-known artist of 70’s New York, whose theatre spellbound and mesmerised his audiences. It was the first time this incredible collection was seen in England. His plays fascinated audiences in the US and Europe alike, yet his theatre remained one of the city’s best-kept secrets. He only allowed 18 people to see his plays and he vehemently refused any documentation of the performances. He called his figurines ‘actors’, meticulously sculpted heads, no larger than a thumb.
