A creative workshop inspired by artworks in ‘The Great Spectacle’

The Great Spectacle tells the story of 250 years of the Summer Exhibition, the world’s biggest open-submission exhibition and longest running annual display of contemporary art. Every summer since 1769, the Academy’s galleries have been crowded with people eager to take in the huge range of works produced by some of Britain’s leading artists.

In this session, two artist educators will support participants to explore and respond to a variety of artworks in the exhibition. Afterwards, attendees will be guided to create their own artworks in response to themes and techniques they have experienced.

These workshops are designed for groups working with disabled adults or adults at risk of exclusion from arts and culture. We advise groups be fewer than 15 people so we can ensure everyone attending is properly supported to engage with the workshop.
