WHEN THE WORLD BECAME QUIET

Three FREE workshops suitable for 10 – 14 year-olds to do at home

With no aeroplanes, fewer cars, less heavy industry and fewer people during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, there was a brief moment when the world appeared to go quiet. But as we tuned to this new reality we realised that there was the low hum of lost sounds, of insects, birds and other animals.

In partnership with The Writers’ Block we investigate this very particular and peculiar moment in time through three workshops.

WORKSHOP 1 / TIM RIDLEY: DRAWING ANIMALS USING A CONTINUOUS LINENews reports and social media gave us images of all kinds of creatures venturing into cities and towns the world over. A downloadable activity sheet with film links explores sketching animals from found images.

WORKSHOP 2 / ALICE MAHONEY: EXPLORING IMAGINARY WORLDS THROUGH SOUNDJoin artist Alice to create landscapes through drawing and collage, with the help of some online soundscapes.

WORKSHOP 3 / POLLY ROBERTS: A CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOPWe will explore how our relationship with the world around us may have changed over the last few months. ‘Imagination firelighters’ will kick-start the process as you dive into nature to discover its secrets, merging real life details with those from your imagination.

All workshops can be downloaded on our website.

Originally created for our annual Children’s Art Week, summer 2020.We’d love you to share your work with us. Use #ChildrensArtWeek
