Virtual Family Fun: Instagram Live (Session 1)


About the Event

Join studio artist Jenny Staff for the first in our series of Virtual Family Fun workshops on Instagram Live. This workshop took place on Tuesday 23 February but you can now watch the video back below and create alongside Jenny in your own time. This workshop is inspired by the work of Miranda Forrester and Emily Moore whose exhibition is on show in our Window Gallery, it can be viewed from the street outside our building or via the video walkthrough on our website here. During the workshop Jenny will introduce you to different ways of playfully creating an image, using collage to build and layer with colours and shapes. You will be encouraged to explore and have fun with materials in an open ended way to create your own piece of art.

Our Family Fun workshops usually take place every month at Phoenix Art Space, they are free, drop in sessions suitable for families with children aged 5-14yrs. This series of Virtual Family Fun workshops will be broadcast monthly while our building is closed.

You will need the following materials and equipment:

  • Paper (ordinary printer paper is fine)
  • Kitchen roll and / or toilet roll
  • Magazines
  • Scissors
  • Glue / Pritt Stick
  • Felt-tips
  • Food colouring
