Saturday Art Club

At New Art Exchange


Kick start your Saturday with these drop-in creative workshops. The perfect chance to get creative as a family, this season we're taking inspiration from John Akomfrah's multi-screen installation Mimesis: African Soldier. Using a variety of materials, the activities will draw on themes of remembrance, war and loss. Get playful and inspired on Saturday mornings by making together as a family.

Check out our children's Activity Zone while you're here!

Linking to the imagery in Mimesis: African Solider, which features running water over uniforms and images that appear trapped, or forgotten, this session will look at how we can uncover and create images using sunlight, and watch them appear in shallow water, rather than disappear. Working with a selection of film stills from Mimesis: African Solider we will layer objects, and drawings onto the images to create fun cyanotypes.


Aimed at ages 4—7
