ArtLab | Memento Mori: Life and Sketch!

As an artist and a scientist, Leonardo Da Vinci made thousands of pages of observational sketches and notes during his lifetime. 'Memento Mori' is the use of the skull as a symbol in art to serve as a reminder of the preciousness of life. In this ArtLab we will be using ink, nibs and brushes to bring to life the world around us. Looking closely at items from the natural world, including feathers, shells and found images we will build a series of sketches.  

All materials required for this workshop will be provided along with still life items to draw from.

Children must be accompanied by an adult or carer and cannot be left unsupervised at any time, thank you for your understanding.  If attending in a supervision capacity, you don’t need to purchase a ticket, however if you intend to actively participate alongside your child please also purchase a ticket for yourself.  Adults welcome to join in the fun with/without children!
