Event Information

The Hills Are Shadows is a special 3-day Creative Camp full of exciting yet practical drawing and art making workshops. Children will explore the fantastical drawing exhibition created by international artists Jim Holyoak and Matt Shane, starting with private VIP tour of the exhibition with the Curator, and the opportunity to meet with the artists who are in residence.

What you will learn on this course

Gain a deeper insight into MAC's exhibition by Jim Holyoak and Matt Shane who work together to produce large scale imaginative and immersive drawings.  Children will be inspired by how the artist’s sketch animals that are real, imagined and extinct, create landforms and architecture and landscapes with pencils, inky brooms, brushes, stencils, spritzers and atomizers.

During this 3-day MAC Creative Camp, children can try out techniques inspired by the exquisite drawings in The Hills are Shadows. By the end of the course, participants will have developed their drawing skills and will have explored different drawing and printing techniques, have worked with an array of art materials and created 3D art forms that respond to the fantastical themes in the exhibition.

Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for children aged 6 to 11 years. It is open to all ability levels and children don’t need previous art and craft experience. All our staff are DBS checked.

The course is accessible for children of all abilities who can participate in practical art and craft activities. A parent or carer may assist their child if required. Carers must book a complimentary ticket if attending a course to provide support. The room is wheelchair accessible.

Age ranges are set carefully to take into account key age developments, materials being used and course stimulus. It is very important that age ranges are not too large or across key stages and therefore need to be adhered to.
