Family Art Workshop at Wivenhoe House

Young budding artists flocked to the first Arts Education Outreach family day to be held at Wivenhoe House.

The event was part of the celebrations to mark the 200th anniversary of John Constable painting Wivenhoe Park and the theme of the day was landscape.

Members of the University’s vTeam helped run interactive arts activities on several aspects of creating your own masterpiece, exploring composition and artistic licence.

Families were also encouraged to head out into the parkland and take landscape photographs which they could then print off.

All participants were invited to submit entries for the forthcoming Celebrate Landscape open exhibition at Art Exchange, which opens on Friday 25 March.

Everyone interested in art is also invited to sign up for Wivenhoe House’s Constable Challenge on Sunday 12 June which will include a family art day.

The University of Essex will moderate comments and there will be a delay before any posts appear.
