Family Art Workshops at the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter

Mixing Colour

The Family Art Workshops: Drawing with colour: Discovering the creation of colour from our natural environment took place in October 2014, facilitated by artists Nabil Ali and Vicky Vergou.

Participants were involved in making their own natural paint colours and creating imagery inspired by artist Simon Periton’s sculpture commission for the ROQ site the ‘Alchemical Tree’: projects/roq_oxford_site_wide_project/


Paint making demonstrations were held throughout the day with Nabil Ali and Vicky Vergou led drawing sessions on the windows and tables inspired by floor to ceiling views of the Radcliffe Observatory Building


The workshops were supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.


With generous support from the Pye Charitable Settlement.


Materials supported by Faber-Castell.
