A beginner’s introduction to artistic practice.

Focusing on the expressive qualities of making art, these explorative workshops will suit those who want to meet like-minded people and create with a relaxed approach. Guided by artist Penelope Lacey, participants will use a range of mediums and artistic practices in their 2D and 3D forms, while experiencing their therapeutic qualities through conversation, observation and engagement.

Participants are invited to bring objects of interest to spark their imagination. Visiting the Gallery on level 3, artworks by Lucy McKenna will also be used to ignite thoughts and ideas to inspire, wonder, question, investigate and consider. Materials used will include clay, paper, charcoal and natural objects.
