Diversions: Route II
Thursday 22 May
10am - 2pm
New Walk Museum & Art Gallery
This year the sculptor Maria Zahle will be taking the lead on our Diversions: Route II programme of workshops as part of her ARMA residency at New Walk Museum & Art Gallery.
Maria will be making a new piece of art for our Victorian Art Gallery that will enable our visitors to play alongside the paintings; the final artwork will be completed in October 2014.
We are offering your school a day with our international artist, Maria Zahle, at New Walk Museum and Art Gallery. This is the one chance where your pupils can work directly alongside our artist to help inform her commissioned piece. Each class group will have an hour workshop with Maria and then extra time to explore our collections.
The workshops are free and are suitable for Key Stage 2, with a maximum of 90 pupils; please note the school must cover the travel costs. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information and to book.
