Welcome to the incredible world of Mary Anning!
Join us at Milktooth over 8 weeks as we explore the life and work of one of the most important scientists of all time, Mary Anning. Born on the Southern coast of England, she spent her years tirelessly exploring the sea-side cliffs, excavating, interpreting and documenting the prehistoric fossils she found. Anning’s contributions to paleontology revolutionised our understanding of the deep past and the history of our planet.
Each session of the 8 week course will see students exploring a different aspect of her life through a creative project, learning new skills and gaining new knowledge along the way.
Our small class size of only 10, means that each student will get the feedback and attention they need in order to achieve their best outcome.
In Junior Art we will be exploring the world of Mary Anning, through a range of activities such as studying and illustrating the incredible mathematical patterns of ferns, recreating the abstract patterns of cyanobacteria using organic paints, carefully drawing the dimensional forms of spiraling shells, felting a small model of Anning herself and much more.
At the end of term, the completed works will be curated into a small, cabinet of curiosities to take home.
Thursday afternoon session runs at 4.00pm – 5.30pm from the 29th of July until the 16th of September
Saturday morning session runs at 9.30am – 11.00am from the 24th of July until the 11th of September
This course is recommended for ages 7+
