Family Art Club

Our Family Artist in Residence Renata Minoldo has created some fun and easy activities for you and the family to take part in at home. Exploring themes of our online exhibition The Botanical Mind, these activities will encourage you to explore plant life, dreams, and transforming spaces in your home.

Activities will be released every two weeks on Fridays and can be found on this page, and on our social media platforms.

Each activity will have a short list of materials you will need, and some simple steps to follow. Once you have had a look at the activity try to take part offline, with as many people in your household who want to join in. You can take part in one day, or stretch the activity over a few days or weeks.

Make sure you have the help of an adult while taking part and permission to use all materials.

We would love to see and share what you have created. If you would like to be featured, please share your work on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the hashtag #Camdenfamilyartclub and tag @camdenartcentre.

Family Art Club

In response to the nationwide lockdown as a result of COVID-19, Camden Art Centre has developed Family Art Club as a digital iteration of our popular Family Sundays which are run by our Family Artist-in-Residence.

Alongside every exhibition at Camden Art Centre, we have a Family Artist-in-Residence whose art practice connects in some way to the exhibition. For the duration of the show, they run our Family Sunday workshops and engage children and families in creative activity, while also using a studio space at the Centre to develop their practice. Family Sundays offer an opportunity for children and families to connect with themes in an exhibition but are mostly about making a space for families to create and play together.

During the Centre’s temporary closure, the team has spent time responding to feedback from our audiences and exploring how we can reach people at this time in meaningful ways. With the launch of the online iteration of our upcoming exhibition The Botanical Mind, we felt it was important to offer families connections to artists, ideas, and ways to be creative together.
