We've asked artist Megan Clark-Bagnall to create a Make With Meg Special Edition LIVE broadcast, inspired by the Meadow Arts Skin Deep exhibition by artist Oliver Jones, currently on display at National Trust's Berrington Hall.  

Join Megan on her Make With Meg YouTube Channel. Grab your favourite craft items from around the house (there's a list of materials you could use above), or rummage through the recycling bin for inspiration, and let Meg take you through the themes in Oliver’s work and feed you with Top Tips, for creating your very own artwork.

This special broadcast is designed for children aged 10+ and their families. It’s inspired by past and present themes around beauty, portraiture, social media and how we present ourselves... but it also recognises the TOP SECRET things we don’t want the world to see. We’re really excited to announce that artist Oliver Jones and the staff at Meadow Arts have sent Meg some TOP SECRET post, containing artistic secrets, that she is going to open and unveil during the LIVE broadcast. 

After Megan has taken you stage-by-stage through creating your own artwork, you can continue crafting to your heart’s content. Ride the creative wave, flesh out your masterpiece BUT don’t forget to share your finished creations with us using the hashtag #makewithmeg or e-mail it to us at images@meadowarts.org.

Please share your finished masterpieces with us by Wednesday 13th May

Meg will include all your creations in a special display inside her art studio. So put your Ribena in a wine glass, pull up a chair and log onto YouTube for a very special Make With Meg Premiere on Saturday 16th May, at 5.30pm. Meg will take us on a VIP tour of all the artworks created, displaying your creations alongside the inspiring work of artist Oliver Jones. A show not to be missed!

 

ABOUT MEGAN CLARK-BAGNALL // 

Megan likes to make fun/ny projects with people. She makes intergenerational art projects in the public realm.

Megan has just completed a 5-month interactive family art exhibition called RULES DON’T APPLY at The Royal Shakespeare Company. This large-scale solo show sat alongside the David Walliams’ musical ‘The Boy In The Dress’ and linked to themes of gender, identity, kindness & acceptance. Megan hosted performative art stunts during the exhibition run; including working with a 9-year-old female footballer to smash a sugar glass window, adorned with negative stereotypical comments. These were put forward by visiting RSC families as ripe for smashing into smithereens, rounded off with a conga and cake. 

2012 shaped the way Megan creates her art. During this year she was artist in residence, working with the teenagers of Crewe. Megan realised what they enjoyed most was swimming in the pool on Saturday mornings, and shooting pool at the youth club on Saturday evenings… so ‘Pool in the Pool' was born. This project saw the two mayors of Crewe playing pool, whilst Megan directed the teenagers (wearing pool ball helmets) to act out the game of tabletop pool, shot by shot, inside Crewe swimming pool. Later shown at The Bluecoat, Liverpool & Bristol’s Diving School gallery. 

Megan celebrates the good & the excellent in human nature, to create sincerely feel-good art. Megan doesn't make very serious art, but she is very serious about making art, especially art that connects people together. 

Megan enjoys smashing together mainstream culture and the art world, to create striking large-scale art installations, performances that tell stories, and immersive events that everyone is invited to take part in.  

Megan is also known as :

"This is amazing. We’re all doing it in the studio. You’ve brightened up our whole event. You’re fantastic!" - Claudia Winkleman, Claudia on Sunday, BBC R2, 26/03/2017
