Join us for this fun workshop and experiment with the lines, dots, marks, patterns, and textures that create an artwork

Unleash your child’s creative side during February Half-Term with a variety of artistic experiments in visual form.

Artist educator Helen Friend will lead children through our exhibition, Sussex Landscape: Chalk, Wood and Water, looking at the different artists’ work and exploring line, tone, texture, form, pattern and colour, before returning to our studio where they can have a go themselves and experiment using the techniques they have learnt about.
