This half term we have all kinds of activities lined up including LIVE OWLS in NN’s Courtyard!
Join artist Louise Clarke for a series of workshops to get creative at NN from 1–4 June 2016.
Mono Print: Glass // Wednesday 1 June 2016
This mono-printing workshop uses a collection of glass, transparent and reflective objects as subject matter, which participants will formally arrange as still life, both as a group central composition and as a collection of individual tabletop studies. No experience necessary.
Price £3 children £5 adults. Book here or at the gallery desk.
Still Light // Thursday 2 June 2016
Session 1: 1.00-2.30 (8-15yrs) // Session 2: 3.00-5.00 (16yrs+)
This workshop focuses on dramatic and specific lighting deployed in the tradition of still life. Objects and reflective surfaces will be arranged to emphasis light and shadow, reflection and tone by using lamps, candles and torches. Participants are encouraged to bring along any other personal equipment i.e. camera, phones, etc in order to explore an individual approach through a mixed methodology i.e. drawing, photography and videos.
Price FREE. Book here or at the gallery desk.
Stilled Lives: Drawing Owls // Friday 3 June 2016
Local owl rescuer and handler Tony Hewitt will bring some of his owls to NN’s courtyard. The birds will be the subjects for two observational drawing workshops using a variety of different drawing materials. No experience necessary. All materials supplied but feel free to bring your cameras and any other media, sketchbooks etc.
Price £5 children £8 adults. Book here or at the gallery desk.
Casting // Saturday 4 June 2016
Casting is an exploratory workshop using plaster to cast small objects and sculptural forms. We will use simple materials to invent moulds i.e. acetate, recycled materials, packaging, etc. The emphasis will be on experimentation with a playful engagement to mould making and the surprise objects that come from them. All materials will be provided but please wear something to get messy in and wear covered, old footwear.
Price £5 children £10 adults. Book here or at the gallery desk.
Please note, all under 16s must be accompanied by an adult guardian. The adult need not purchase an additional ticket.
