Family Workshop: Interactive Summer Watercolours with Joanna Layla

Celebrate summer through colour-mixing, mark-making and paper sculpture inspired by the sea.

When, Where

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.

Your ticket to the workshop includes entry to our current exhibitions: Posy Simmonds: A RetrospectiveMarie Neurath: Picturing Science and Quentin Blake: From the Studio.

Materials are provided.
