Activity: The Everywhere Gallery (Free materials)

This activity is about how we can look at things differently, just like an artist might.

You can do this activity anywhere, around your home, in the park or on the way to or from school.

To make your frame you can download our template here or make your own.

Template 1

Template 2

You will need, a ruler, pens, scissors and recycled card.

When you have everything you need just follow Susie’s instructions on the film to find out what you can do.

Don’t forget you can decorate the frame as much as you like, add a few sparkles if you have them!

Or you can email ljacques@nottinghamcontempoary.org and we can post the cut out frames to you, all ready to use.

Once you have finished making your frame, you are ready to explore and look at things a little bit differently!

You could also make gallery labels for the artworks you find.

Take a look at some of our examples.

The labels include:
The name of the artist. (That’s you!)
The name of the artwork. (What will you call it?)
The date the artwork was made. (Today's date.)
What the artwork is made from. (For example; found items, nature, toys, stone, plastic.)

You can make your own labels or download a template

Tips at home

- Make a clear space to work.
- Gather all the items you need before starting work.
- Mind your fingers when cutting your frame. Ask an adult if you need help, especially when cutting out the middle bit.
