- The Collection
CM09 – Part Day
Creative Arts workshops link to the heritage collection as well as the permanent and temporary exhibitions.
As an Artsmark Partner and Arts Award supporter we have supported schools, colleges and individuals on their creative arts journey!
We have divided our Creative Arts offer to include the four new themes (CM12, CM13, CM14, CM15).
These themes also link to our new outreach kits containing art work examples form the collection (coming in Autumn 2020).
The kits form part of the Investigate Learning on Tour offer and can be hired from The Collection Museum by schools, colleges and community groups.
Our focus is to support you in designing and creating your own exhibitions. See our Creative Arts film also in the news section.
Our aim is to inspire learners with our collections and art works to create their own work and let their imaginations fly!
This creative process is very exciting and we hope that you really enjoy our workshops!
Creative Art : Landscapes Workshop Experience
This workshop offer can include an exploration of a variety of themes and techniques.
They are based upon the exhibitions and collections and provide opportunities to Investigate, Create and learn how to design your own exhibitions.
For a full day there would usually be three different workshop sessions and we can discuss the best workshops for your learning needs.
Recent workshops have focussed upon painting, drawing, mixed media and clay work.
The themes and techniques are chosen by exploring the galleries and focus upon topics such as still life, portraiture and the use of colour.
This offer can also include work with visiting artists when we have artists in residence. We will discuss the area of focus with you and design a timetable to suit.
This bespoke creative arts offer allows you to choose your areas of focus from across the Creative Arts topics.
Workshop themes can include:
- ‘Investigate’ session: Guided learning experience in the galleries and exhibitions. Also includes object handling.
- ‘Create’ session/s: Options to choose from include drawing, painting, mixed media, clay work. Choose two of these if you are not choosing the design session.
- ‘Design your Exhibition’ session: Meet the learning and exhibition teams to learn about exhibition design and how to plan your own displays.
The teacher at Lincoln Mount Street school said:
“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!”
