Half term activity for families at the De La Warr Pavilion SUS-161018-155535001

This is a free event and a drop-in to explore Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths (STEAM) through fun experimental drawing techniques and contribute to an evolving installation in the De La Warr Pavilion Studio, supported by artist Karen Logan, gallery staff and volunteers.

Please note studio capacity is limited, and entry for this drop-in event is first-come, first-served.

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday visitors can unravel some of the ideas and processes within the galleries, in artist-led workshops. Artist Karen Logan will facilitate alternative tours of the exhibitions, encouraging open-ended experimentation with creative skills and techniques.
