York Art Gallery

Monsters in the Making… – Sat 29 Feb 2020

Dates: Saturday 29 February 2020–Sunday 1 March 2020, 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Venue: York Art Gallery

There’s a mini monster! Where? There! WHERE? In the artist garden….

This activity offers the excitement of discovering a monster hidden in the Artist Garden, and the opportunity to create your own individual narratives and a 3D friend for your found monster. Be encouraged to develop stories and make your own clay creation back in the Learning Studio. Where did you spot your monster? Did you take a photo of them? What do they look like? What do they like to eat? Is your Monster good at art? Is that why they were in the artist garden or perhaps they like to sit and look at the shapes in clouds/a day dreamer? Free family friendly drop in work shop.

Timings are 11am – 1pm and 2pm – 4pm

All material included. Gallery admission applies.

Whacky and Wonderful – Sat 7 Mar 2020

Dates: Saturday 7 March 2020–Sunday 8 March 2020, 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Venue: York Art Gallery

Create whacky and wonderful textured creations using air drying clay and combinations of everyday materials in this family friendly workshop inspired by Gillian Lowndes. One of the most unusual things about Gillian Lowndes work is the different materials she uses. She called herself a “materials-driven artist” and she experimented with lots of new techniques and ways of working with clay, often including other types of materials and ‘found’ objects in her work. Why not come along and be inspired!

Timings are 11am – 1pm and 2pm – 4pm

Free family friendly drop in work shop. All material included. Gallery admission applies.
