SECRETS FROM CHINA @British Museum

The Chinese have cultivated a way and culture that celebrates their nation in a way that's unique and to celebrate this Chinese New Year 2018 we have prepared a day-long scavenger hunt that will take the kids into a wonderful adventure through the streets of London, from our camp base in Shadwell to the British Museum or the streets of Soho. The clues, hidden in fortune cookies, will guide the children from one point to London to another while learning about chinese culture, History, language and Art.

Cats, dogs and even monkeys depicted in portraits since 1540. British are well known for being true animal lovers, let's explore how this shows on British Art from the 16th century to our days!

After exploring the galleries we will visit...some real animals at the nearby Vauxhall City Farm!

FRIDAY 16th February

SQUISHY PAINTINGS @Tate Modern

If there's a group of artist that never run out of imagination and creativity these are the group of artists from Surrealism.  Surrealism mixes dream and reality in the same artworks, the unconscious part of the brain guides the artist that's why artists needed to invent new creative techniques to force the unconscious to work. We will see the works by some surreal artists in the galleries and later experiment with different surreal techniques, like the decalcomania involves applying paint to paper then folding it, applying pressure and then unfolding the paper to reveal a mirror pattern.

Decalcomania is most commonly associated with the surrealist painters Max Ernst and Oscar Dominguez, who would use the technique and then turn the resulting patterns into landscapes and mythical creatures

* This plans might change due to unexpected reasons such weather, transport strikes…but in case we have to change them we will let you know as soon as possible.
