School's Out Art Mash-Up: Curious Shadow Box for 11 to 16-year

22 January 2019

Music and Performing Arts

Children are naturally creative, but as they get older and more focused on schoolwork and exams, they have less opportunity to get messy, get inventive, or express themselves through art.

Our two-hour School's Out Art Mash-Ups will give them the perfect break from homework and allow them to have fun by experimenting with pottery and letting their imaginations run wild. There is something to suit every inquisitive and creative mind.

In this workshop, young people will participate in a creative journey of assemblage artwork. They will make a treasure-trove of assemblage art to take home and keep forever, adding trinkets and photos, fabric and paints to create a unique shadow box.

Participants will learn how to attach 3D objects inside their box, as well as using collage, paint, photographs and found objects to create a Joseph Cornell-inspired ‘cabinet of curiosity.’
