CAST offers drop-in summer workshops for curious and creative kids aged four to eleven on Saturday mornings throughout August.

About

July 29 and Saturdays throughout August

Led by artist Lucy Grant, each workshop will have a different theme and will be packed with activities, ranging from paint making to stop-motion animation, slime concoction and more. All materials will be provided. Children should be accompanied by an adult.

29 July: Movement – Explore the effects of motion, gravity and balance with kinetic art, wind-up and clockwork mechanisms and mobiles.

5 August: Colour – Examine colour through a spectroscope, explore colour theory and the colourful history of pigment and have a go at making your own paint.

12 August: Animation – Discover the tricks of the moving image with thaumatropes, flick books and shadow puppets and have a go at 3D animation.

19 August: Form – Compare crystals and slime. Look closely at microscopic structures and geometric forms. Handle crystals and recreate their forms in folded card. Grow your own crystals or concoct slime.

26 August: Replication – Put together your own production line. Design and create a prototype, cast it and replicate it or design your own logo, make a stamp and reproduce your own identity cards.
