LOCATION Art Studios

In our experimental inter-generational series of art classes, adults and young people are invited to attend art classes together to learn processes, create work, support and inspire one another and collaborate. The courses are designed at an adult teaching level with in-depth skills and processes to create considered and professional pieces.

This programme of drawing will explore what line can do in many media to render places, people and objects. Working individually and in collaboration, the older/younger mind and hand will render small and large scale artworks on paper. Demanding both verbal consultation as well as the use of silence, visual story-telling will provide an exciting drive for the artists to complete a series of completed art works. Continual documentation of this will be encouraged, culminating in an informal exhibition where students will share and discuss the wide ranging final art works presented.

Suitable for all levels of experience, this course will inspire exploration of all of the visual elements such as line, tone, texture, shape, form and colour; using a wide range of dry materials such as lead/coloured pencil, charcoal, pastel and biro upon varying textured/coloured papers. A range of different artists from the past and present will be looked at to prompt thinking and exploration of all of these materials and concepts.
