Arts Awards workshops at Fishbourne Roman Palace

YOUNG people are being offered the change to work towards a nationally-recognised art award this summer.

Staff at Fishbourne Roman Palace are running three art days for participants to create their own pieces of work, inspired by original finds from the site.

On each day, there will be the opportunity to work in a different medium under the guidance of a practising artist. Participants will be given the opportunity to experiment with different techniques and learn new skills, as well as working towards their Arts Award.

The next session is on Sunday (July 21) when students will be creating portraits and statues in clay.

On Saturday, August 3, there is an opportunity to try carving and relief work, while the session on Saturday, August 31, is an open session for participants to choose their own medium.

Head of learning Katrina Burton described it as a ‘great opportunity’ for 11 to 18 year olds to combine a love of history and art.
