Picasso’s Trousers
QUAY ARTS – Seminar Room
Fri 25th Feb 1.15 – 2.00pm

People were always saying ‘No, no, no, Picasso!’ But Picasso said ‘Yes!’ He painted all blue pictures, art out of rubbish, and drew pictures in 60 seconds. He became the greatest artist in the world – and he wanted the greatest trousers! Find out about the real story of Picasso and his amazing trousers.

Nicholas will be reading his book Picasso’s Trousers, the true story of the artist and his trousers. In this session there will be magic, illustration, readings and a fun workshop in which you can make Picasso’s Pants and everyone wins a chocolate prize! Learn about the greatest painter in the world – and his great trousers!

Welcome to the IW Story Festival.

Friday 25th and Saturday 26th February 2022

It’s a special place for children and families to have fun together; where we can all CREATE, INSPIRE and IMAGINE.

 Stories are all around us; not just in books and poems and plays and songs, but also in the news and history and the places we live. Over two days, the IW Story Festival lets you get lost in stories of all kinds…

Our aim is to:

Let children and their families CREATE; whether through stories and poems, junk modelling or other crafts; to have fun together and discover new talents

Let authors, poets, actors, illustrators, spoken word artists and others INSPIRE you to create your own stories; to discover new worlds and new ideas

Let us all IMAGINE the amazing things we can do and the amazing things we can be.

What stories will you bring with you?
