Family studio: art of the circus Family workshop
Circus250 is proud to present in partnership with the Royal Academy a drop-in workshop inspired by the artworks in their current exhibition Laura Knight: A Working Life, which shows the dazzling lives of circus and stage performers like the “mighty mannequin” strongwoman, Joan Rhodes. Live circus acts by our two StrongWomen will be performed at intervals throughout the day in the John Madejski Fine Rooms (Burlington House), introduced by ringmistress Dea Birkett. We’ll finish the day with a custard juggling act in the Clore Learning Centre (Burlington Gardens). Make your own artworks inspired by artist Laura Knight RA’s action-packed drawings of the circus, ballet and the amazing feats of live circus performers. There’ll be hula-hooping, telephone book-tearing, acrobatic balancing and more. Marvel at the astonishing acts, and have a go at drawing them from life. Then, make and decorate your own miniature model performers that lift, somersault, pirouette, swing and fly! You be the ringleader - will you model artistic acrobats, dazzling dancers or bold ballerinas? This is a free drop-in workshop, with circus acts performed at intervals throughout the day in various rooms in the Royal Academy.
