Our trail sponsor, Hancock gallery, has gone all out to welcome their sponsored Shaun to their venue – they have even created a special room dedicated to all things Shaun on the Tyne!
Their ‘Shaun experience room’ aims to make art accessible for all and invites trail-goers to discover the fun and mischief of art. Located on the first floor of the gallery, the Hancock Gallery team invite you to step inside and learn about learn about mischievous artists who have made history, get stuck into activities and create your own masterpieces, chill out in the video corner or get a selfie with Shaun and Bitzer.
And for the grown ups, you can wander around the gallery’s three floors filled with art from renowned and emerging artists, shop in the book store or simply watch on while the little ones get creative.
Design your own Shaun!
Hancock Gallery is also running a competition for visitors to design their very own Shaun on the Tyne sculpture – the winner of the competition will win the opportunity to have their design printed on to a little Shaun, which will be exhibited in the gallery – as well as a bag of art goodies!
So when you are searching for Shauns, why not pop in and discover a world of mischief and creativity, as well as ticking another Shaun off your list!
