What is more important in art, the idea or the object? How do we define art? Do artists always have to create something new? You can share thoughts on these issues whilst enjoying a range of tasks and activities in the Material Worlds display rooms.
Please bring along an everyday object found on your journey to the workshop. This could be a stone you like the look of, a sweet wrapper found on the street, a leaf fallen from a tree or an empty can. Any object will do.
This workshop is for children aged 8-12 and accompanying adults. The session will be led by philosopher Dr. AislinnO’Donnell and Education Curator Katy Fitzpatrick.
