Stanley Picker Gallery is excited to continue running our fun and free Art Club workshops for children aged 7-11 of the local community who are enthusiastic about art and design. Workshops are FREE for all and regularly run each week on Tuesdays 3:30-5pm and Saturday 11am-12:30pm.
Sessions are led by a team of Kingston School of Art students and alumni, and complement the gallery’s programme, which this term is Larry Achiampong A Letter, A Pledge that centres around two films that delicately unfurl the tensions of dislocation and grief, while placing the visitors in an environment filled with sculptural elements. Oware games and Asante stools, fabricated in the Kingston School of Art 3D workshops, as well as retro video games are present for visitors to learn to play.
Young artists will delve into the themes of the exhibition in fun and engaging ways – combining interactive games, making, drawing, and discussion – as they explore the practice and processes of contemporary artists, learn new techniques, and have the opportunity to contribute to a special participation showcase at the end of term!
Parents are encouraged to drop their children off and return at the end of the session, to see what has been going on and visit the exhibition together.
