Toubie Jack ‘Where will your new shoes take you?’

Join us for a family friendly activity where participants will photograph one of their shoes, convert it to black and white using the photocopy filter in Photoshop. They then print out the shoe to colour with pencils or crayons based on the idea of where will their new shoe take them?

This workshop will enable young people and their families to experience something new and different. They will combine digital art with traditional art. At the end of the session they will be able to take their new creation away with them.
