Oi over here! Yes here! We are very excited here at Tate Kids because we have a very cool project coming to the blog and we want you to be equally, if not more excited!
*Drum roll please….*
We are starting a project called The Textile Tryouts!
• Richard Tuttle mainly likes 3 things: textiles (fabrics, materials like cotton and wool), text (words, poems, sentences) and the everyday (an interesting thing, which we will be looking into during the project).
• We will be setting activities – we are going to call these ‘Tryouts’ that you can do at home or in the classroom which are all to do with textiles, text and the everyday. We will be exploring, weaving, performing, painting, drawing, climbing, sticking, writing, cutting and playing to make all different types of art!
• You will get to meet the artist Sarah Sanders and she will be setting some of her own ‘Tryouts’. You’ll get a great insight into how artists think and artistic processes!
• We want to see what you make! We will be asking you to submit your art work via email – firstname.lastname@example.org - (or your parents, guardians and teachers can tweet it at us using #textiletryouts!) and then we will showcase a selection of your artworks here on Tate Kids and you can comment on the artworks made by other children all over the world! We have a few Terms and Conditions that go along with this which we’d recommend having a look at.
Interested? Excited? We thought so! The first tryout will be up on 14th October! We’ll see you there!
