As part of the ParkLife Project 2013, Bexhill Museum has two free Big Draw art and craft workshops inspired by Egerton Park.
Bexhill Museum’s Rachel Heminway-Hurst said: “We are delighted to be working with some fantastic professional artists and photographers on this project. The Big Draw events we have on offer this weekend will introduce families to fun ways of exploring, drawing and creating artworks in new and exciting forms using nature as both inspiration and as an art material.”
First up is Pop Up Park, an art workshop tomorrow from 10.30-4.30pm in the De La Warr Pavilion’s Studio.
Families can join the Visual Artist to create a big 3D park drawing to be displayed on the exhibition wall, and enjoy making drawings inspired by dinosaurs, ancient buried boats and fantastic futuristic creations.
Sunday sees Drawing with Nature, also a drop-in workshop, from 2-4pm at Bexhill Museum. The invitation is to have fun foraging in Egerton Park, then help make a giant collage at the museum. This activity is run by Rebecca Hone and Rachel Heminway-Hurst, ParkLife Project Managers.
Meet Rebecca at The Studio, DLWP, at 1.30pm to view the ParkLife photography exhibition and get inspiration and then come to the museum for 2pm. Or meet Rachel at the museum at 2pm to get started on the activity.
