Key Stages 3-5, Painting in Virtual Reality 

A special edition of our ARTificial Reality offer which gives your pupils an unmissable opportunity to paint in virtual reality (VR) with artist, Alison Goodyear.

Throughout February 2020, MK Gallery’s Project Space will host Paint Park - a dynamic installation created by artist, Alison Goodyear, which explores the possibilities of ‘phygital’ painting, where digital and physical painting intersect. Pupils will take part in a unique, inspiring three-part experience focussing on the physical and digital possibilities of paint:

Paint Park

Pupils will work with Alison Goodyear to explore, analyse and discuss the expanded field of painting. Alongside an artist’s talk with Q+A and a short film about the making of the works, pupils will don VR headsets and plunge into a fantastical realm of VR painting. Pupils will also be supported by Alison to create their own VR paintings. Find out more about Alison’s work here.

MK Calling 2020

Pupils will join one of our Learning Scouts on a tour of MK Calling 2020, MK Gallery’s open call group exhibition showcasing, amongst other art forms,
the most dynamic painting being made today.

Vertigo VR

Pupils will join our next-door neighbours at
Vertigo VR where they will be supported by staff
to experiment with Tilt Brush by Google, some
of the latest digital technology inspiring painters today.  Find out more about Vertigo VR here.



*Paint Park is supported by funding from Arts Council England. This enables us to offer this opportunity at the reduced cost of £9 per pupil (Minimum charge £270).
