CLIMArt Camp

Monday 19 - Friday 23 August 2019, 10:30am - 4:30pm

For this year’s Art Camp, children and young people will use their creativity and knowledge to make a climate (climART) statement.

Participants aged 11-15 will experiment with various media across the week, led by an Artist Facilitator. Together they will respond to our locations across Lakeland Arts, and highlight their views and concerns on the threat of climate change.

CLIMArt Camp & climate change

In our summer exhibition at Abbot Hall, ‘Ruskin, Turner, & the Storm Cloud’, Royal Academy artist Emma Stibbons has responded to Ruskin and Turner’s works with her landscapes which are directly affected by climate change (now ‘climate emergency’).

CLIMArt Camp will get children and young people thinking like an artist in today’s environment. They will have the opportunity to be led by an Artist Facilitator, and create their own work inspired by their visit to sites across Lakeland Arts, with their final day ending with a group exhibition to welcome the whole family to view the finished artworks.
