Join artist educator Victoria Willmott for a series of fun and informal creative activities that explore our current exhibition or special themes. Family Takeovers happen every fortnight during advertised dates (see below) and are particularly suitable for children aged 4-12 years.
Families can drop-in and stay for ten minutes or an hour – it’s up to you! Victoria can also help you complete our free activity sheets. Aprons are available but activities won’t be very messy. Materials are provided free of charge, but donations are welcome.
Free – drop in between 11am – 2pm
Spring dates; 30 March; 13 & 27 April
30 March: Cracked Window/Mapping – Concertina Book Making – Rubbings/Printing
Using paper to make a concertina book with one side a broken window and the other a map into a new landscape, decorated with rubber stamps and graphite.
13 April – Easter Special: Sculpting Clay Cars – Make a Traffic Jam
Using clay to make mini cars and vehicles that are soft and moveable.
27 April: Fabric collage and stencils – Make traffic cones, road signs and barriers
Using fabric scraps to collage onto sheets and make patterned landscape, then cover with the black card stencils to frame into the shapes of road signs and barriers.
Really Great! Lovely variety of media and ideas. Great support from artist in helping children extend their creations!
Best art class I’ve been to!
