Are you and your little ones in search of a creative outlet that’s both fun and educational? Look no further than the Saturday Family Art Club at Glynn Vivian! Nestled in the heart of Swansea, Glynn Vivian Art Gallery offers a fantastic opportunity for budding artists and craft enthusiasts to dive into the world of art together. It’s not just an art class; it’s a chance to bond, create, and learn new skills in a warm, welcoming environment.

Each month, the Gallery’s learning team hosts a Saturday morning workshop designed for families to explore various materials and techniques. From sculpting and painting to crafting, these sessions are perfect for letting your family’s creativity flow.

  • This April, immerse yourselves in the underwater world with the Coral Reef Sculpture Workshop. Participants will use clay, wood, and paint to create stunning coral reef sculptures, drawing inspiration from the sea and the exquisite works featured in the Swansea Open.
  • In May, get ready to dive into The Magic of Marbling Painting Workshop. This session is all about embracing the unpredictable and the beauty of fantasy painting. Using marbling techniques, families will create mesmerizing miniature worlds, inspired by the captivating paintings of Clare Woods on display in Celebrating 25 Years of the Wakelin Award.
  • June brings the Ship-in-a-bottle Workshop to life. This workshop invites you to craft your own fantastical, nautical curiosities using recycled materials. The inspiration comes from artist Craig Wood’s tribute to Swansea’s Cape Horner’s. Just remember to bring a large, clean, wide-necked glass jar with a lid for this creative adventure!

These workshops are suitable for children aged 3 and up, with all materials provided by the gallery. To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience, children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult.

The Saturday Family Art Club at Glynn Vivian is a destination for making memories, exploring creativity, and enjoying quality family time. And the best part? You get to take home whatever magnificent artworks you and your family create.
