Unleash your inner creativity on the Boats, Bridges and Boundaries Art Cruise with MBNA Thames Clippers.
Pick up a family-friendly activity pack at London Bridge City Pier, made specially for the London Festival of Architecture. Packs are filled with stickers and fun drawing activities that pay homage to the Bauhaus movement and the architecture along the Thames.
Vessels can be boarded from 22 piers along the Thames, from Putney in the west to Woolwich in the east, with stops including Battersea, Westminster and Greenwich.
Check out some creative suggestions for your art cruise along the Thames:
Go geometric in Greenwich
Cruise along the river to Greenwich and take inspiration from views of Canary Wharf and the pleasing symmetry of the Old Royal Naval College. Marry these iconic sights with the minimalist design of the Bauhaus movement to make a bold artwork.
Get some perspective on The Shard
The Bauhaus movement was all about linear forms. Few buildings boast such dramatic lines as The Shard, designed by famed architect Renzo Piano. Try your hand at drawing it from the perspective of the river.
Transform Tower Bridge
Let your imagination run wild as you travel under Tower Bridge. Colour the world-famous bridge pink, accessorise it with fun flags or deconstruct it into geometric shapes. Creativity knows no bounds.
Cast your eye over the Coca-Cola London Eye
Turn your gaze on the Coca-Cola London Eye, a London design icon. Experiment with colours and stickers to create your own unique version.
After completing your architecturally inspired creation, drop it off at the Bauhaus Postbox at London Bridge City Pier and receive new challenges to tackle in the area.
