Family Saturday

With Polly Brant

Join artist educator Polly Brant to explore the power of colour and its importance in art.

The paintings by Mali Morris delight in their use of colour. Geometric shapes and painterly gestures appear to extend far beyond the surface of the canvas and illuminate the space around them.

Families are invited to create their own vibrant artworks and learn how colours can create movement, space and rhythm. Turn your abstract designs into posters, cards or badges to take home.  Open to all ages.

About Family Saturday:

Family Saturday takes place on the first Saturday of every month, 11am-3pm – join us for a drop-in creative activity, led by a local artist.

Ikon’s Learning Programme is supported by Cass Art. Please consider making a donation for this free activity.

About the artist:

Polly Brant is an artist-educator from the West Midlands. Led by curiosity and reforming, Brant is interested in what art education is, where it can happen and its meaning. Much of the time what she makes is created from collections of thoughts, notes and hopeful ideas informed by research to both champion and question what art/art education can be.
