Stars of the Silver Screen

Saturday 20 January 2018

Create a stunning black and silver character headshot with artist Julie Bradley. Inspired by the stars of the silver screen in Starstruck, this self-portrait workshop explores the technique of scraperboard.

Scraperboard is a fun material with an eggshell finish of paint covering a silver cardboard base. When drawn on by scrapping with various tools, the shiny silver base is revealed to create stunning silver self-portraits on a black background.

Children will have an introduction and walk through the exhibition where they will photograph each other and there will be an option to dress up and get fully into film star character. The resulting portraits will be displayed in a Hollywood Boulevard style frieze for family and friends to enjoy before taking the individual portraits home.

All materials provided. Children are asked to bring along their drink bottles and a snack and to dress in casual art making clothes.

Suitable for children aged 6 – 10 years. Places limited.
