Saturday Art Club – Christmas Art Activity Packs
The Gallery of Modern Art was originally built as a private house for the ‘Tobacco Lord’ Cunninghame. You can still see some of the original features of the house today. The Tobacco Lords in Glasgow made vast sums of money through the Atlantic slave trade of sugar and tobacco. Their houses would have been decorated with expensive furniture. Try to imagine a Christmas celebration in a house such as this?
2. History of a Building Christmas Crackers
For our second activity in the art pack we look to the history of the Gallery of Modern Art building and all of the different uses the building has had over the years. From a house, bank, business centre, library to an art gallery. Use this as inspiration to create a set of 4 Christmas crackers.
You will need: toilet roll tube, glue, scissors, coloured tissue paper and ribbon
