I've designed and delivered creative art and design learning experiences in museums and galleries including the V&A, the Horniman Museum, and Historic Royal Palaces - drop me a line about devising a bespoke learning activity for your programme.
At the V&A
Drop in Design:
PLAY A PICTURE
As part of the weekly Drop in Design series, I devised and delivered a session on graphic scores for families with children age 3+. Families composed a song and then transcribed it into a collage picture so that other families could play their song.
Family Art Fun: MAKE A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT
A joint project with Lorena Carbajal. In this Family Art Fun Holiday activity, we challenged families to make a musical instrument from a set range of everyday materials. Along the way they learned about the science of sound.
Drop in Design: WINNIE-THE-POOH STORIES
To accompany our sessions on narrative illustration and concrete poetry around Winnie The Pooh, I created this sensory under 3s space - the teddy bears picnic in Hundred Acre Wood- to help the youngest childen participate in narrative learning alongside their siblings.
COLLAGE AT THE DIANA AWARDS TRUST
Working with a group of young people to explore more positive ways of using selfies to strengthen self identity.
Mapping the Olympic Park: THE BIG DRAW
Helping families to navigate a route to the olympic park from Stratford station using communal mapping activities - families drew their own map as they travelled, then handed it to the next family for them to follow, embellish and adapt.
ANIMAL FARM BIG DRAW: WATFORD MUSEUM
For the anniversary of the animated Animal Farm film, I produced a mixed media collage workshop about farm animals. Encouraging participants to think about using texture and pattern to express character when drawing pigs, sheep and chickens from life. No fluffy cotton wool sheep here!
