Here’s some things to keep you busy at the start of another week.
- Just before lockdown started, the Henry Moore Institute installed a new exhibition: Paloma Varga Weisz: Bumped Body. They’ve put together a competition, inviting you to have a go at drawing one of the art works, currently displayed outside the gallery in the city centre. The sculpture is called Bumpman and the challenge is to create a drawing that looks as 3D as possible. They’ve got some handy hints and tips and a video tutorial to help you out. Find out more here. The deadline is the 20th May, There are three categories (under 10, 10 – 18, 18+) and Paloma Varga Weisz is the judge!
- Leeds Libraries and Schools Library Service have a weekly newsletter with lots of ideas and things to do. Their ‘Top Picks’ select activities suitable for specific age groups (this week includes a ‘draw along’ with Nick Sharratt and listening to Saviour Pirotta read The Golden Bird of Swan Street.)
- Some of you may have met Annie Berrington, from Get Out More if she has visited your school to deliver a workshop. She’s been posting lots of creative activities to do outside – have a look here.
- Playful Leeds Youtube Makers Club have online tutorials, some of them made by children and young people. Well worth a look and lots of varied ideas.
