Monsters in the Making – Sat 14 Mar 2020

Dates: Saturday 14 March 2020–Sunday 15 March 2020, All Day
Venue: York Art Gallery

There’s a mini monster! Where? There! WHERE? In the artist garden….

This activity offers the excitement of discovering a monster hidden in the Artist Garden, and the opportunity to create your own individual narratives and a 3D friend for your found monster. Be encouraged to develop stories and make your own clay creation back in the Learning Studio. Where did you spot your monster? Did you take a photo of them? What do they look like? What do they like to eat? Is your Monster good at art? Is that why they were in the artist garden or perhaps they like to sit and look at the shapes in clouds/a day dreamer? Free family friendly drop in work shop. All material included. Gallery admission applies.

Our Low Sensory Experiences are designed for visitors who would prefer a quieter visit to the art gallery.

Our building is fully accessible (including the shops, toilets and outside space), and some of our Visitor Experience Team have received training in assisting visitors with additional needs.

There are plenty of areas where you can sit down and relax, and a designated quiet space should you need it. Our Visitor Experience Team will be happy to help with any queries you may have.

Events are free for visitors with autism, dementia, visual impairments or similar issues. Carers and children under 16 will also be admitted for free. Accompanying members of a group will be admitted for £4, and standard admission is £8. There is no need to book ahead.
