THE STUDIO

Presented by the James & Diana Ramsay Foundation, The Studio is the Gallery’s hands-on space where art lovers of all ages can participate in creative activities associated with the exhibition program.


THE DAZZLE STUDIO

Programmed to coincide with Sappers & Shrapnel, The Studio is inspired by ‘dazzle camouflage’. Coined by British artist and naval officer Norman Wilkinson in 1917, the term describes the painting of the outer surfaces of war vessels in dynamic black and white geometric patterns as a battle tactic to optically confuse the opponent. Step into the Dazzle Studio for a dizzying, optical encounter and create your own version of dazzle camouflage.
