Portffolio: artist-led masterclass for 14-18 yr olds
11.00am - 5.00pm
Drawing consists only of marks, so the way we make marks really matters. Focusing on mark-making, students will employ a range of media, papers and textures, using sketchbooks to gather and experiment with ideas and to discover how different media can work together. Gilly will be bringing along her own sketchbooks and showing examples of how other artists use theirs.
£12.50 per workshop or £50 for five workshops (to follow).
All materials are provided and are included in the cost.
About Gilly Thomas
Gilly originally studied sculpture but now makes work that merges drawing and painting, populating her work with characters placed in surreal spaces and places. She draws constantly to generate new ideas and experiences visual using acrylics, oils and mixed media.
What is Portffolio?
MOSTYN’S Portffolio programme is part of Criw Celf, an Arts Council Wales funded initiative for young people with a passion for the visual arts. Aimed at students in Conwy aged between 14 and 18, the programme sets out to nurture and support more able and talented students.
Experienced artists from a range of disciplines will share their work and help you develop your skills in exploring materials and techniques you may not have used before. There will be opportunities for you to discuss your work and develop your personal portfolio.
