Warhol Winter Workshops at Tate Liverpool

OVER the festive season, families are invited to Tate Liverpool to get involved in Warhol Winter Workshops and explore the work of iconic artist Andy Warhol in this free hands on activity.

Warhol Winter Workshops take place over the Christmas holidays on Saturday, 27 December to Tuesday, 30 December 2014 and Friday, 2 January to Sunday, 4 January 2015, between 13.30 to 16.30, in Tate Liverpool‘s studio and family space, the Clore Learning Centre.

Led by artist Harriet Hall, families can play with their identity and use colour and self portrait projections to create their very own digital self portrait inspired by the celebrity portraits on display in Tate Liverpool‘s current exhibition Transmitting Andy Warhol.

Visitors can also enjoy transforming the family room into a Warhol inspired ‘total art‘ environment by using colour, light, sound, text and images and have fun transmitting their own messages to one another across the room using tubular telephones.

Debbie Goldsmith, Early Years and Families team, Tate Liverpool said:- "This free festive activity is a fantastic opportunity for families to explore the gallery and have fun creating their very own pop art inspired artwork."

Andy Warhol remains one of the most important and influential artists of the Post War period and the central figure associated with pop art. Transmitting Andy Warhol brings together more than 100 works, across a range of media exploring Warhol‘s experiments with mass produced imagery with highlights including the iconic works Marilyn Diptych, Three Brillo Soap Pad Boxes and Campbell‘s Soup I.

Warhol Winter Workshops will take place in the first floor of the gallery and is suitable for all ages.
