Confluence: workshops for schools

Inspired by the collaborative exhibition Confluence of the North, we will explore what ‘North’ means to us by creating a large-scale map. We will investigate stories, landmarks and our own island culture as a basis for our map making and we will work together to create an intricate and detailed artwork using charcoal. The project will encourage pupils to consider the possibilities open to artists when they work together on a project and how the theme of ‘North’ resonates with us as islanders.  The finished map artwork will provide plenty of inspiration for further work in school including creative writing and learning opportunities in geography, drama and numeracy.

Workshops will be led by our new Gallery Educator Alice Macmillan.  Alice is an Artist and former teacher.  Your visit will include some time in the gallery speaking about the artworks, and a practical workshop in the education room.

Suitable for Primary school classes. 

Available on Mondays and Tuesdays until 23rd November (other times may be available on request). 

Duration: approx. 2 hours, but can be adapted to suit your travel arrangements
