Make & Takes are all about bringing families together to have fun and get creative with hands-on art activities. 

Ever fancied yourself as an abstract artist? Explore colour, shape and form inspired by abstract artworks on display around the gallery. Have a go at using acrylic paint, layer it up and and create your own vibrant and unique canvas, try your hand at doing some abstract drawing and make an abstract-inspired paper construction, all to take away.

The painting activity is time slotted. These time slots will be available to choose from on purchasing your ticket. Sessions are limited to x12 children and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

The time slots will be:

10.15am - 11am

11.15am - 12noon

12.15 - 1pm

1.15pm - 2pm

All materials provided. Painting can be messy, and acrylics aren't washable! – aprons will be provided but please don’t wear your best clothes!

Age range: anyone can take part but we recommended 2-13 year olds, with adult supervision. Please note this is not a 'drop-off' activity. All children MUST be accompanied by an adult.
