Muse: The Lie of the Land

MUSE, our series of practical art workshops for adults has returned to the Museum in person! These workshops will take place in the gallery spaces, and in our Education studio making use of materials and techniques that can be safely used in these areas. Art supplies will be provided. Each workshop is 2 hours long.

Nature often provides an escape away from our everyday urban lives and a source of artistic inspiration. But is this a modern concept and does 'landscape' really exist as an artistic genre?

Zensation Student Wellbeing: The Quiet of the Land

Zensation is a friendly session for all University students, we look at the Museum collection to find improved wellbeing and enjoyment in this informal often practical session. No previous art skills necessary.

Find a place of quiet as you gaze across the landscapes in our exhibition 'True to Nature' compare this experience to David Hockney's reimagined landscapes where the dial is up to 10 for colour saturation. In our studio paint in acrylic on board, a landscape of your own.
