Join us at Millennium Gallery on the 17 July for a day of activities and workshops to celebrate the launch of the Bears of Sheffield Sculpture Trail.
Site Gallery alongside Sheffield Theatres and Sheffield Museums will each be offering workshops and experiences for young people aged 5-11.
Site Gallery have commissioned artist Geo Law, who will be running an interactive digital art workshop. Taking the Bears of Sheffield as inspiration, you will have the opportunity to create your own original artwork and transform it into a digital illustration.
Throughout the day we will collect your contributions and add them to our digital bears showreel that will be projected onto the walls of the Millenium Gallery. There will also be live demonstrations of Adobe Photoshop for you to watch your creations come to life.
