THE SPINNING, SWIRLING, TWIRLING DRAW

 

WEDNESDAY 30 OCTOBER

 

Drawing on the windows and doodling on the floors. Join us as we create a kaleidoscope of colour for the Spinning, Swirling, Twirling, Window-doodling Draw.

In this workshop, artist Venessa Scott will show us how to use pens filled with paint and brightly colour markers to create swirling doodles that can be filled with pattern. We will draw straight onto the window panes and watch as the sunlight creates puddles of colour onto the walkways and walls. Then together we will fill the balconies with our wonderful and colourful doodle works of art. There will also be an opportunity to have a go at the art of spirograph.

'My work is often described as bold, joyful and 'makes people smile'. My artwork is produced using a variety of methods and materials, and strongly features graphic shapes and whimsical characters. I love being outdoors and being surrounded by nature so my work often includes elements from the environment that surrounds me and I always find a way of incorporating pattern into my work. My favourite type of canvas in an unexpected one; I especially enjoy customising street furniture and installing public works of art. When I am not in my studio or installing art outdoors you will find me teaching a design class or running a creative workshop for students and enthusiasts across the North of England and Yorkshire.' - Venessa Scott
