Step into a world of creativity with Charlotte Cranidge with a children’s art workshop inspired by our exhibition, The Shape of Things: Still Life in Britain.

In this workshop, children will learn how to create their own still life arrangements using simple shapes and layers, exploring the concepts of positive and negative space. It’s a great opportunity for young artists to get creative and learn about the art of still life in a hands-on way!

Designed for ages 10 – 13, this session promises a feast for the imagination.

Parental supervision is optional but welcomed!

Things to note and what to bring

All materials will be provided and we advise that children wear comfortable clothing that they can get messy. Please provide a snack for your child.

We may wish to use photographs you share of you, your child, or their artwork on our website or social media for marketing purposes. Please let us know, when sharing children’s work via email, if you do not consent to this usage.

We believe art is for everyone, and endeavour to make any reasonable adjustment for participants. If your child has a specific access requirement and you would like to discuss the workshop with a member of the Public Programme team, please tick the box in the booking form for a confidential phone call.

Artist educator bio - Charlotte Cranidge

Charlotte specialises in creating conversational events, creative practical workshops and participatory projects. Within her work she aims to deliver programmes and events that focus storytelling, playfulness, inquisitiveness and experimentation – asking participants to engage in multiple processes to create their own works.

Presently she partners with cultural, heritage and clinical settings to develop resources and produce creative outcomes collaboratively with communities. Drawing inspiration from unique collections, exhibitions and artworks, Charlotte creates programmes that present an exciting, alternative way of learning, complementing the formal education system and engaging all ages.

As an artist Charlotte’s practice focuses more on the outcomes that emerge from basic materials, adopting non-conventional treatments of materials and aesthetic potential. However, the roots of her practice lie in painting and printmaking – specialisms she frequently returns too.
