Collage-Making Workshop

Collage-Making Workshop


Inspired by Arturo Herrera’s Untitled artwork on The Leadenhall Building escalators, join us for this collage-making workshop led by Anna van der Poorten.

Children are adept at creating joyous and instinctive abstract works of art, and this workshop will allow families to create their own collages with Arturo Herrera’s collages as an inspiration. Children will first create abstract colourful pieces with paint sticks, and then will be encouraged to swap and share them. Using collage techniques, they will then create artworks that express their personal experiences of their surroundings.
