With The Phantom Art Show current on display at the Gallery, two superhero sculpture workshops for school-aged children will be held on Wednesday 18 January.

Participants will use supplied wire frames and art-quality plasticine to create a detailed figurative sculptures.

“They can make their own Phantom, Batman or Wonder Woman, a sculpture of their best friend of favourite movie character,” the Gallery’s Education and Audience Development Officer, Jodi Ferrari, said.

“Alternatively, they can design and make a brand new superhero.

“Bring along a photo or representative object to help spark some added creativity.”

Award-winning sculptor and arts educator Leonie Rhodes (pictured) will teach traditional sculptural techniques, as well as some clever tricks for working with modern materials.

She will lead a morning session, from 10.30am to noon, for children aged six to 12, followed by a workshop at 1pm to 3.30pm for participants aged 13 and over.

“There will be an incredible array of colours available, so participants will be able to let their imaginations run wild,” Ms Ferrari said.
