DIY Art is our new free series of activity packs specially designed by artists, inviting you to get creative at home. The instructional creativity kits give insight into an artist's practice, showing how you can use their processes and techniques to create your own unique artwork. Keep an eye out as we release more activities over the coming weeks.
What you will need:
- A small area of clear wall with some space in front of it to set up your filming device
- Phone/ tablet/ laptop- Paper (about 20 sheets)
- Card (cereal boxes are perfect!)
- Colourful drawing pencils/ pens/ pastels
- Shiny scraps (kitchen foil/ sweet wrappers etc.)
- Blue tack
Alongside the piece ''It’s All Over But the Dreaming'' presented as part of our August offering, artist Tamara MacArthur has created a special DIY Art activity that invites you to imagine your own dream world, and turn it into a paper theatre set at home. You can find costumes for your characters using everyday things from around the house. Then, using a filming device like a phone or laptop, you can create your own show.
Watch your magical dream world become a reality!
