Save Our Planet: Placard Art Workshop and Mini Protest – Older Children (Let’s Go Green Festival)

In these unique workshops commissioned especially for our Let’s Go Green festival, the younger generation will have the opportunity to learn about climate change, the history of protest art and then to create their very own peaceful protest placard. The sessions will be led by artist Colette Whittington. Colette will provoke discussion around climate change in an imaginative and engaging way and will introduce examples of protest art throughout history such as The Paris Collective, Emory Douglas and Keith Haring. Participants will then create their own climate change placard using photomontage, collage, drawing and printmaking with stencils and block printed letters and typography. At the end of the session we will then embark on our very own mini protest in and around our libraries to spread the message of action for climate change.

Recommended age: 8+ years

£3 per ticket. Please book online via the Eventbrite website – see ‘More Information’ link on this page, or at any Halton library.
