Design your own Cubist mask and let your creativity unfold.
Join us for a fun-filled workshop where we’ll dive into the world of Cubism and create unique layered masks inspired by John Craxton’s cubist portraits.
Your child will be encouraged to unleash their imagination as they get to exaggerate facial features and play with proportions to design their very own cardboard masks inspired by this innovative art movement.
Adding a splash of vibrancy to our creations, we’ll provide an array of colourful felt tips and stamps, allowing each mask to truly pop with personality! Whether it’s bold patterns, funky designs, or a burst of colours, your child’s mask will be a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that reflects their individuality.
Cubism is all about breaking the rules and celebrating unique perspectives. In this workshop, we encourage children to think outside the box, embrace their creativity, and design masks that showcase their own artistic flair.
Things to note
We advise that children wear comfortable clothes that you do not mind getting a bit dirty.
Please provide a packed lunch and drink for your child. There will be a lunch break during the workshop.
We will be taking photographs during the workshop, if you would prefer your child not to be photographed, just let us know.
