Children’s Workshops - Looking at the works of Sandra Blow 
Saturdays in September, 10am – 12pm

This series of workshops will take young people on a colourful journey through the work of Sandra Blow. Each week will focus on a different approach to creating art, delivered by artists from St Ives School of Painting. Inspired by the exhibition, we will explore the way Sandra Blow worked, including glueing, tearing, sticking; material paint and texture; canvasses and collages. The final week will culminate in a combination of painting and fashion with everyone creating wearable art!

The course is ideal for young people aged 6 to 13.
