Using the excellent resources offered by The Collection Museum and Usher Gallery we are developing a range of workshops linked to the Creative Arts.
As an Artsmark Partner and Arts Award Supporter we are further developing the art and design offer. Recent workshops have focussed upon clay work and exploring the art gallery with topics such as still life, portraiture and the use of colour.
Creative Art : Landscapes Workshop Experience
This workshop experience can be part day or full day.
The ‘Investigate’ session involves a visit to the gallery with handling activities and focuses upon techniques and interpretation.
The ‘Create’ session is a practical landscape art session to test out colour, texture, perspective. These may focus upon a variety of methods e.g. painting, mixed media or using natural resources found within the landscape.
For those staying for the full day session there is the opportunity to further develop skills and interpretation in the ‘Expand and Exhibit’ session.
During the David Ross exhibition, ‘Land, City and Sea’ there is also the option to have space within the Usher Gallery to exhibit artwork. Speak to the Learning Manager for further details.
From an Art session in January 2018
Jan 31st session – from teacher at Lincoln Mount Street school who visited The Collection and Usher Gallery:
“Many thanks for the wonderful workshops you put on for us last week. Our children totally loved them and were so inspired that we ended up dedicating the whole of Thursday afternoon to still life drawing because they wanted to do more!”
