February Half Term: Paint a City [6+)
[ Children )
Play with colour and texture by choosing a few favourite colours to create layers of thickly applied paint, inks, and crayons plus more.
Scrape, scratch and add more paint and textures like sand. Then see what happens when you remove some of the layers using brushes, rollers, mesh and other materials.
10.30am – 3.30pm
£35 per child
Led by Claire Westwood.
All workshops take place in the Gallery and are led by professional artist educators. Please drop your children off in time to start at 10.30am and pick up at 3.30pm. In some cases, the workshop leader may invite you to return slightly earlier to see a presentation by the workshop participants. Children will stay in the Gallery all day.
All equipment will be provided and materials are included in the ticket price but please provide a packed lunch and a bottle of water for your child*. Lunchbreaks will be supervised by Gallery staff.
Advance booking is essential. If you’re under 18, tickets must be booked in advance by a parent or guardian.
*The Gallery café offers a lunch option for your children. Our chefs will prepare your child’s lunchbox during the morning activities and have it ready for their lunch break. All packed lunches will include a cheese or ham roll, piece of fruit, yoghurt, Babybel and your choice of either a Fruit Shoot or bottle of water. All packed lunches are £5 each and must be pre-ordered on the morning of the workshop from the café counter on the ground floor.
Please note when purchasing your tickets that our system labels the tickets for this event as ‘Adult’, even though the booking is for children. We are looking into fixing this.
