With the grand opening of the Grimaldi Forum’s major summer exhibition, ‘Turner: The Sublime Legacy’, now just days away, the cultural venue in Larvotto has announced a series of special, affiliated art workshops for children that will be taking place during the school holidays. 

On Saturday 6th July, after months of build-up, the Grimaldi Forum will be unveiling its captivating Turner show in conjunction with Tate Britain. 

While the main event will be more geared towards adult minds, the venue is also seeking to involve and inspire the event’s younger visitors with a number of creative workshops designed to unleash their inner artist.  

Between Monday 8th and Friday 19th July, on weekdays only, the Grimaldi Forum will be hosting an array of courses for children that will feature themes specific to J. M. W. Turner. Those who come along to the classes will be taught a variety of techniques used by the prolific artist through pastel and watercolour painting sessions. Participants will also be given the chance to learn the basics of photography and study the impact of light and the time of day on colour interpretation.  

The courses for five to eight-year-olds will run from 10am to 12pm, while those aged between nine and 12 are invited to come along for a separate two-hour class starting at 2pm.  

Single sessions cost €25 per child or €110 for a week’s worth of workshops.
