Going Round in Circles
This colouring activity is inspired by artist Will Teather’s radial artworks. These paintings are a reworking of older paintings that are on permanent display at Strangers’ Hall. Teather's fractal reinterpretations “explode the geometry implied within the historical composition around its key energy points. The results of this process can be described as somewhat psychedelic, like a glitched version of the originals, helping viewers to see the museum collections afresh”.
With this as our inspiration we have created a series of kaleidoscope colouring sheets using objects in our collections. Print one out, settle down with a nice cup of tea and get creative! You could copy the original colours or let your palette run wild with more modern psychedelic combinations. We’d love you to share your colourful creations with us!
