In this big, bright and bold workshop, participants will learn about mural design techniques and collaborate with the rest of the group to design a colourful, abstract mural installation.
Within this workshop participants will:
- gain an insight into the artist’s work and their own approach to mural design
- generate a body of work through various drawing and cut out exercises, resulting in a set of abstract shapes
- have the opportunity to design their own mural maquette
- learn about creative collaboration, and apply these principles to the design of a collaborative mural installation
