Fun Stuff To Do

Fun art inspired flapjacks

If you are a fan of art and baking then why not combine the two and create your own work of art on a canvas made of sponge and decorate in the style of your favourite artist. Check out our edible work of art recipe blog.

If you’d like to explore your own creativity then why not seek out a friendly art group in your area. The Society for All Artists has a list of groups around the UK and details on how to get in touch with them. Your local college might also run evening classes in pottery, drawing, photography and textile art.

Join The Contemporary Art Society to find out more about the art scene through talks, workshops and events.

Retired art teacher Ian Reynolds offers great advice and practical tips for people with visual impairments who wish to draw or paint. Visit his website paintingwithsightloss.com.

Great Places To Visit

Niki de Saint Phalle Drive Side Yorkshire Sculpture park

Instead of experiencing art in a white cube, why not step outside and enjoy art in the open. The changing seasons offer a majestic backdrop to the works of art on display at the  Yorkshire Sculpture Park including Henry Moore, Anthony Caro  and Sol Le Witt.

BALTIC Centre in Gateshead in an impressive industrial building on the bank of the River Tyne, BALTIC is a major centre for contemporary art.  It doesn’t have a permanent collection but instead provides an ever-changing calendar of dynamic exhibitions and events.

The core of the collection at Southampton City Art Gallery is twentieth century and contemporary British art, with highlights including Anthony Gormley and Douglas Gordon.
