Hokusai Sleepover, The British Museum

To tie in with the current Hokusai exhibition: Beyond the Great Wave, Young Friends added their artwork to a giant collaborative display. 
Each person made their own 3D paper scene, using Hokusai's landscapes as inspiration. The collaborative artwork was given colour and helped to grow as the evening went on!

February at the British Museum

Over February half term I worked with families on this expanding installation at the British Museum. Inspired by Ndebele House Paintings of South Africa, this mini village made a link between the 'South Africa: the Art of a Nation' exhibition and al the families who dropped in.

Events at the British Museum

I made a giant River Nile at The British Museum recently, as part of the Sunken Cities events. Adults of all ages came to make a boat to form a procession. Great fun had by all!

Talk and Draw Sessions

I've been creating adult sessions at Orleans House Gallery which involve talking as a group about art in the exhibition, and then making accessible artwork afterwards. 
The last session was based on colour and 3D form - it had beautifully sculptural results!

Prints in Progress for London Transport Museum

I've been working on a simple printing process for family workshops coming up at London Transport Museum. 

Here's a sneak peek of what my trials look like so far!

Workshop Design for The British Museum

We've been making golden tablets at the British Museum's Sleepovers, inspired by the Night at the Museum films. Here's a few examples of what we made in just 45 minutes!

''...Very well run.  Anna made the instructions clear, breaking them down so everyone could keep up. The project is clever and the results are nice...

...lovely, helpful staff and clear and clever layout. Thank you!''

Drawing Workshops at The British Museum

I've written and delivered some drawing workshops for the BM's Members' evenings. 
I didn't take any photos myself, but this was posted on the museum's Facebook page:
