Summer art activities

This is a wonderful drawing by Charley of a Jester which ties in with our Tudor art theme.

Don't forget that art activities are running all through August, and if you haven't been before, now is the time to visit as it's generally a little quieter in the galleries when the weather is good!

I tried out a printing session with young adults the other day. We looked at designs from the 1950s (on clothes from our collections and in books)and then made some prints based on them. The printing techniques were a mixture of relief prints (like lino but using softblock) and monoprinting. Here are some of the pictures which are fantastic! I'll try and get round to adding more soon.

I'm planning on running something similar next year for adults and young adults (aged 16+) so if anyone has any suggestions or would be interested in having a go, please get in touch.

Art activiites have begun in Oriel 1 for the summer and will continue every day throughout August. It's a drop-in session and runs from 11 until 1 and then 2 until 4. We are looking at lots of things to do with the Tudors and making models of Tudor Buildings.

I'll be adding more pictures as the summer goes on!
