Due to popular demand we are now offering four Art Camp weeks packed full of fun, creative activities inspired by the Museum’s collection and exhibitions and led by our experienced team of artists. The schedule of activities for week commencing 7 August is as follow:


Monday 7 August: Amazing Mazes with artist Lucia Harley

Be inspired by all things Greek. Make a ‘marble-run’ maze and have fun using costumes and props to create your own mythical hero or heroine, based on the Holburne’s collection. Illustrate a story page and model a mini clay statue.

Tuesday 8 August: Fabulous Flora with artist Mary Caron-Courtney

Go on a Holburne hunt for flowers in many shapes and forms and then create a unique and colourful floral collage

Wednesday 9 August: It’s Party Time!with artist Caroline Davies

Explore and sketch the stunning ceramics and silver in the Holburne collection then create your own party table, mixing your observational drawings with ideas for your very own dream party. More is more as you set the party scene using paint, pastels and collage techniques.

Thursday 10 August: Colour Crazy Print and Weave with artist Caroline Davies

Taking inspiration from the exhibition Tapestry: Here &Now, design your own abstract artworks then create them using printmaking techniques. Explore vibrant colour combinations and try your hand at some decorative paper weaving.

Friday 11 August: Bonkers Birds Junk Modelling! with artist Caroline Davies

Go on a bird-watching tour of the Museum galleries then use your sketches to design your own fantasy 3D junk-modelled bird, plus other bird-based artworks.
