Details

Art Club participants will become human sculptures during a week of fun movement activities and games with contemporary dance artist Bryony Pritchard. Suitable for 7 - 11 year olds.

£120 for all four days (a 15% discount is available for siblings attending art club)

DAY 1 – CLAY, LINE AND JOURNEY

Art Club participants will visit our stunning new exhibition Magdalene Odundo: The Journey of Things and explore the exhibition through drawing and movement activities. They will then learn how to make and move with clay by discovering the sensory elements of clay and create large experimental artworks using their whole body.

DAY 2 – OBJECTS AND WAYS OF SEEING

On day two, your children will select their favourite object to inspire their own stories. Then they’ll journey through the galleries making a moving drawing with the group thinking about all your senses. What can you feel, smell, hear in the gallery space? Finally, they’ll build a collaborative sculpture with the whole group linked to ideas from around gallery.

DAY 3 – CONNECTIONS, WRAPPING AND EXTENSION

Through creative making and drawing games, the kids will pose and move to become human sculptures. After drawing their fellow Art Club attendees, they’ll add paper sculptures onto their body to transform themselves into an artwork.

DAY 4 – EXTENSION AND SHARING

On the final day, the children will take part in a series of drawing games to make collaborative artworks using colour, and collage materials. They’ll spend the day experimenting with movement in response to everything they’ve created through the week.

Please note, activities may change from this structure in response to the group.
