How are the crystals and molecules that make up everything on earth formed?  In this workshop we examine the mysterious world of chemistry through experiments. We learn about how physical and chemical changes take place, make our own special mixtures, and create our own molecules using soft candy. In this way, we learn about chemistry through experience and improve our creative thinking skills.

Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests

Between 1963 and 1966 Andy Warhol worked at making film portraits of all sorts of characters linked to New York art circles. Famous people and anonymous people were filmed by Andy Warhol’s 16 mm camera, for almost four minutes, without any instructions other than ‘to get in front of the camera’.
