In this workshop you will create your own moon masterpieces, 50 years after the Apollo 11 Moon landing. We’ll start by learning all about artists who have been inspired by the moon, and the different ways the moon has been depicted in art. Then you will be able to use what you have learnt to make your own paintings, prints and sculptures inspired by the moon.

Who teaches this course?
Ruth Price - KS2 Teacher and Arts Coordinator, Adderley Primary School
Benny has brought out of the children a thirst for learning new techniques in art and they have had a chance to really get 'hands on' within the group - something which is often shyed away from by teachers in the classroom during school hours. It has been an opportunity for children to value their art work and take pride in pieces that they create.
