Saturday Art Club has been inspiring families for 14 years. Come along to these fun and creative workshops up in our roof top studio. Take inspiration from the artworks on display while trying out different materials and techniques. Drawing, painting, sculptures, printing, collage, what will you be making this week?
Recommended for children 3 - 12 years.
12th Jaunary: Jack (Knox) in a box
Visit our Jack Knox exhibition on its last weekend on show and find different images of food! Then use these to create your own pop-up box full of mini artworks.
19th January: Mini Filmmakers
Following in the footsteps of Margaret Tait, this lively workshop will encourage children to collaborate with their families and learn the basics of filmmaking. Like Margaret Tait, families will be encouraged to observe the environment surrounding them and record them on camera, to create their own story. All you'll need to bring is a camera phone and your creativity!
26th January: Come What May, Along the Way
Lawrence Weiner has a public artwork that surrounds the Gallery of Modern Art. Come along to this Saturday Art Club to learn more about him, and to create your own engraving inspired by his work.
2nd February: Love is in the art
In this creative workshop, we will encourage families to represent love in all its forms thorugh an art and craft project. This session will be inspired by Queer Timɘs School Prints, a series of educational prints visualising aspects of LGBTPQI+A.
9th February: Woodland Wonder
Nature is often the inspiration for artists, and Aaron Angell’s sculptures are an example of this. Come along to this Saturday Art Club and make your own nature-inspired artwork.
16th February: The Amazing Moving Image
Get hands on with the National Library of Scotland’s Moving Image Archive and their film handing kit, then create your own moving pictures. Why not make a day of it and head over to Kelvin Hall in the afternoon to visit the Moving Image Archive and turn your drawings into a real animation!
23rd February: Sunny Sunflowers
This Saturday Art Club takes inspiration from David Hockney’s work in Gallery 2. Not only will you get to plant your own sunflower, but you will also have a go at drawing some still life!
2nd March: Make your voice heard!
Inspired by Queer Times School Prints, our exhibition in Gallery 3, we encourage families to come to GoMA and let us know what issues are important to them. We will make colourful placards and then march around the gallery to show everyone what we care about!
9th March: Girl power!
Just after International Women's Day, join us for a celebration of female artists, and make work inspired by our new exhibition Domestic Bliss.
16th March: Science fun
What do art and science have in common? Inspired by the film by Fischli+Weiss in Gallery 2, you will make our own crazy science experiments while at the same time creating your artistic masterpiece!
23rd March: Superstitions and Stories
Sarah Forrest was influenced by the rich Gaelic folklore of Lewis and in particular ‘An Da Shealladh’ (second sight). Come along to this Saturday Art Club to learn some Gàidhlig and come up with your own storyboard.
30th March: Votes for Women
Domestic bliss in Gallery 4 relates to feminist discussions, among which a celebration of the suffragettes movement. Inspired by these artworks in our exhibition, come and celebrate the achievements of the suffragettes by making posters and badges to take home with you.
