SUITABILITY: Years 1 – 4

Creativity, art and performance in a special workshop inspired by Picasso and his Dog.

Pablo Picasso’s sausage dog, Lump, inspired not only the artist’s work but his view of the world. In this workshop, students will learn about Lump and then use this as inspiration to get a little arty!

Students will experiment with drawing styles and create their own sketches and shadow puppets of an animal close to them.

Facilitated by leading industry professionals, students will then explore how to bring the world of their shadow puppet to life.

A delightful way to complement the performance of Picasso and his Dog, this workshop connects students with their creativity and makes an artist of everyone.
