Sunday is art day! Come along to the Gallery every Sunday for a drop-in family art-making workshop. Each week there will be a different theme for you to explore and something for you to take away as a momento. This season's sessions are inspired by Harald Sohlberg: Painting Norway and Mariele Neudecker's new tank installation.
Suggested age: 4-12yrs
Suggested timing: These sessions are drop-ins and you are welcome to arrive at any time between 2 and 4pm. We would recommend arriving at 3pm after the initial rush if you would like a quieter experience.
Please be advised that these are family workshops, and designed for everyone to enjoy! Children should always be accompanied by at least one adult for the entirety of the session.
24 March – Forest Weaving
Try your hand at weaving, inspired by Sohlberg’s paintings of nature.
31 March – Folk Art Collaged Cards
This Mother’s Day, make a beautiful card inspired by Norwegian Folk Art. Cut, stick and collage to create your own designs.
7 April – Clay medallions
Come and be inspired by the faces and flowers in our Collection to create your own medallion out of clay.
21 April – Flower mobiles
Have you seen the miniature portraits in our collection? Take inspiration from them to design a massive frame to show off these tiny paintings.
28 April – Building prints
Inspired by Jan Van Huysum’s flower paintings, come along to craft a flower mobile to hang up at home.
Dulwich Picture Gallery’s family programme is proud to support the charity Doorstep Library and invites you to bring book donations to our Art Sunday sessions. At each session, there will be a box outside of the Sackler Centre where you can place your donations. These will be passed on to Doorstep Library and much appreciated by families across Lambeth! Find out more about the amazing work they do here.
I have been really enjoying my family Art Sundays @dulwichgallery Last week we made ink wash postcards about our imaginary life in the woods. Every drawing looked as gorgeous as the next, but my hands-down favourite is by my niece, and helper for the day, Alice (hope you don’t mind me posting this, Ali? xxx) #inkdrawing #inkpostcard #imaginarylandscape #creativity #artforall #dulwichpicturegallery #artsunday #proudauntie
