February Half Term: Radical Bodies [11+)
[ Children )
Let’s look at how ‘The Nude’ is portrayed in art and explore where the line is between being naked and becoming a nude art form.
Explore and appreciate the human form by depicting various different bodies. You will have the opportunity to sketch your sculptural design ideas and then realise your ideas as clay sculptures. Through being exposed to diverse bodies we can start celebrating the wonderful human form through art without censorship, shame or sexualisation.
10.30am – 3.30pm
£35 per child.
For ages 11+.
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.
Led by Sam Dawood. Sam works as a freelance artist specialising in fabrication and figurative sculpture, whilst also working within the film industry in the Art Department. She studied BA Technical Arts and Special Effects at Wimbledon College of Art, UAL.
Sam started the sculpture shop Jesus And The Dinosaur to explore perceptions of gender diversity, desexualisation of the nude and reactions to nudity. The aim is to support others in not being embarrassed by nudity, to become desensitised to all naked bodies; sharing the wonderful human form through art without censorship, shame or sexualisation.
