Join us at the Polar Museum with artist Alice White, to explore where science and art collide and discover how the spirit of exploration is shared by artists and scientists alike. This exciting series of co-disciplinary workshops for 15-18 year olds combine practical art techniques with live science experiments and a chance to be inspired by the awe inspiring, icy worlds of the Polar Regions.

Workshops are free to book and you can attend one, two or all three in the series. As places are limited, please ensure you are available to attend the workshops in person at the Polar Museum.

Workshop 1 – The Art of Navigation (exploring Polar landscapes and ice, sketching with contrasting pencil effects and textures) Monday 4 April, 1pm- 4pm

Workshop 2 – The Colour of Ice (painting colourful light effects) Tuesday 5 April, 1pm-4pm

Workshop 3 - Painting Polar Optical Illusions (working with collage and mixed media) Wednesday 6 April, 1pm-4pm

These sessions will be run by Artist Educator, Alice White. Alice White is a Short Course Tutor at the University of the Arts London, and an Accredited Lecturer for The Arts Society. She is a team member of SunSpaceArt, winners of the Sir Arthur Clarke education and outreach Space Achievement award (2021). She completed a year's residency as Artist for Animals at ZSL London Zoo.
