Paint STUFF with The Ark

900 900 Carolyn Croke

Online workshop, Ages 8-12 years


Guided by artist Lucy Hill, experiment with everyday stuff from your kitchen to make your own paint, brushes and exciting new artwork at home.

Exploring everyday materials from your kitchen cupboards, such as flour, coffee, turmeric, salt, vegetable oil, leaves, soaps, hand sanitiser, find out how all this different stuff interacts to make your own colourful paints.

By looking at a range of artists who make their own paints, inks, papers and drawing materials, discover the wonderful effects they achieve from the materials they use.

Together in this workshop, we will get messy and experimental, sharing our kitchen paint lab findings with each other. We’ll explore ways of making paint brushes from household materials and experiment with the kinds of marks they can make, creating gorgeous artworks together and devising our own paint recipes.
