Next session: 16 September

Do you want to investigate and experiment with new artistic techniques? Turn a mix of materials into a collage masterpiece? Well then the next Off The Wall is for you!

Using our current exhibition Sargent: The Watercolours as inspiration you will get the chance to not only see Sargent’s work but then experiment in creating work of your own. Sargent’s paintings provide glimpses into wonderful scenes across Europe and with this theme of travel in mind you will get the chance to create a series of collage postcards.

Join artist Francesca Centioni-Dene who will help you to explore alternative and new ways to approach experimentation with watercolours and investigate the expressive nature of collage and shared narratives. You will get the opportunity to try your hand at different techniques such as mark making, mixed media, water-media, layering and experimenting with watercolour. Plenty (extra space here) of collage materials will be on hand, so with your new techniques, a mix of materials and Sargent’s work as inspiration, you can get creating!
