Celebrate summer and the sea at this interactive watercolour workshop for 5-12 year olds inspired by Marie Neurath: Picturing Science.
Explore the wonders of the watery medium of watercolour to create seaside shapes, textures and creatures. Participants will then transform their sea-inspired artworks into coral reef headdresses to take home.
We’ll consider the importance of looking after our amazing oceans and coral reefs while getting stuck in to a series of fun, hands-on activities.
Materials are provided.
