Join the Science Oxford team for a playful exploration of science and art. Ever since cavemen first started painting on walls, we have used art to explore our feelings about the world around us. From Leonardo’s inventive designs for helicopters and submarines and Georgia O’Keefe’s detailed flower canvases to JMW Turner’s use of paint to express the power of nature on the British landscape, there has always been a creative connection between the sciences and the arts.
At this workshop, children will become both scientists and artists. They will investigate materials, forces and colour and then use what they’ve learnt to create their own scientific art to take home. There’ll be painting, making and lots of experiments, so please ensure your child wears something that can get messy!
Presented in partnership with Cornerstone. Booking is through Cornerstone on 01235 515144, and can be booked in conjunction with Changing Materials workshop in the afternoon. Parents are not expected to stay and if your children are doing both, they will be supervised over lunchtime and should bring a pack lunch.
