Artist Katie Schwab and families worked together to explore different forms of life writing, using colour, shape and language to express and abstract their everyday experiences.

Families sat down at a typewriter to compose letters sharing personal stories of sights, sounds and journeys, used the windows of the Education Studio to play with the rhythm of abstracted punctuation marks and shift shapes on the walls and lawn using coloured vinyl inspired by the geometric forms of Katie Schwab's tapestries.

This event ran in parallel to Etel Adnan’s exhibition The Weight of the World and was a free, drop-in event, open to people of all ages.

The Serpentine Galleries have signed up to the Family Arts Standards. We welcome families and to help you enjoy your experience we are committed to ensuring we meet these Standards. More information for visiting the Serpentine Galleries with your Family
