Portffolio: artist-led masterclass for 14-18 yr olds
11am - 5pm
Print paint in layers to create amazing artwork
Iain Perry’s workshop will show you how to make your own screen printed artwork. Learn how to break down a design into seperate layers and then bring them back together using different coloured paints. It’s a great way to train the brain to see art in all of its individual parts. You’ll come away with your very own screen print and a greater understanding of the printed art world.
About the Artist:
Print Garage is run by Iain Perry, an artist and screenprinter creating deeply layered, colour saturated, slow motion screen prints. His work borrows language from other art forms, film and photography, poetry, electronic music and rave culture – amalgamating, mixing and remixing, offering up familiar signs and signifiers but now refracted and reflected, elusive and allusive, all lightly seasoned with a slightly understated degree of subversion. Layers of fragmented iconography and geometry coalesce on the paper, like motes of dust trapped in a beam of light teasing us with a cheeky glimpse of a much bigger gestalt. The image generation is a slow process of experimentation, of trial and error; collecting imagery, developing patterns and overlaying all the different elements until new and intriguing relationships emerge.
£12.50 per workshop or 3 for £30.
Workshops include a 1 hour break. Please bring packed lunches.
