Clore Art Studio

Welcome to the Clore Art Studio; a space for families to be creative together

“Everyone can draw. You can write a poem or draw a picture, or write a story with a picture. Put it up on the wall or take it with you, or leave it neatly on the table. Enjoy yourselves, but don’t waste paper. The paper is free. Please leave the table tidy.” Li Yuan-Chia.

The Clore Art Studio is currently part of the Speech Acts exhibition and has been inspired by the spirit of the LYC Museum and Art Gallery.

In this space you can play hexagonal table tennis designed to promote cooperative play rather than winners and losers.
Be inspired by geometric and abstract prints from our collection to create your own drawings and patterns in our magnetic playground.
Watch Space and Freedom, a film by Helen Petts specially commissioned for Speech Acts.

Please post images of your creations at #MAGfamilies
