Arts Tutorial

ArtJohn is an artist & educator with over 15 years experience working as an artist in primary schools, museums, galleries & heritage sites across the UK. 

ODDMANOUT contacted Art John to produce a how-to video for the people of Darlington to create their own self sculptures as part of the ‘It’s all Happening here’ project. We’d love it if you felt inspired to create your own mini (or even giant!) self sculpture in order to create a craft based version of yourself! 

We originally intended for people to join us for a creative weekend before the Covid pandemic struck, and we had to cancel the exhibition aspect of this project. However, if you feel inspired to join in and create a sculpture then we’d still love to see pictures of your creation! You can email them to us through our contact page ( ) or feel free to tag us in your social media.
