Dream Rooms/Spaces workshop at The Royal London Hospital
An art workshop about ‘Dream Rooms/Spaces’ was led by experienced arts educator and teacher Laura Fox, on 24th June at The Royal London Hospital.
Participants, ranging from 11 to 15 years old, looked at large prints of dream rooms and spaces from leading artists from different periods in art history including: Frida Kahlo, Vincent Van Gogh, David Hockney, Tracey Emin, Rachel Whiteread and Marc Chagall.
Laura then led them through a discussion about what these images all have in common, which of these images they liked and why, what they thought the artists felt about these spaces and how the artists had conveyed this.
Participants then experimented using collage materials to create their personal ‘dream space’ using a variety of materials including: magazines; different types of paper; leaves; stones; paper clips; masking tape; drawing pins; and rubber bands. They could also add drawn or sculpted elements.
Using the iMotion app on iPads they then learnt how to animate the different elements of their artistic work and create a short animated film.
Thanks to The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation for funding this workshop.
