20-21 Visual Arts Centre: What’s on virtually?

North Lincolnshire’s leading venue for the contemporary visual arts has great virtual activities suitable for everyone!

20-21 Visual Arts Centre is known for it’s exhibitions, activities and events. Due to current ongoing Covid regulations they are currently closed to the public, but have a wide range online activities for all the family to enjoy this Easter break.

ARTivities has moved online in the form of instructions and downloadable templates and colouring sheets, and some new ideas from the Inspired Learning team.

This week you can create your own paper craft beetle, inspired by Melanie Tomlinson’s exhibition Ghost Horses and Guns, and the beautiful details in her works. It’s a simple make, with just three pieces to cut out, but very effective. Print a few out to different sizes and make a whole range of minibeasts.
