An inspiring new programme for both beginners and developing artists
Explore interesting ideas and themes, discuss and interpret them in your own way, and gain practical media skills in the studio. We will work at your pace and encourage peer learning with mixed ability groups. If you've missed the start date, just check in - we might still be able to enrol you !
ARTS & IDEAS - Creative studio exploration with themes
ARTS Our studio explorations may involve a range of different media and techniques - designed around the capabilities and interests of the group. This may include painting and drawing, craft & mixed media, digital art, natural materials and recycling and a lot of imaginative experimentation.
IDEAS These workshops explore various ideas, themes and inspirations from the personal to the global. Conversations will provoke imagery and we will explore ways to interpret them. We will explore artforms and narratives from traditional and contemporary cultures, faiths, philosophies, spiritual and religious sources. We will also draw inspiration from a range of topics such as the human condition and contemporary society life stories and journeys, relationships, power and justice, the environment and our place in the natural world.
A rich source of ideas inspired by symbols and rituals, allegories and parables, markers of identity and belonging.
Some traditional art forms and techniques will be learned and reinterpreted through exploring our own identities.
