2-day workshop

and Sunday 17 March 2024, 10.30am - 3.30pm

Drawing on some of the themes of the RWA’s current show These Mad Hybrids: John Hoyland Contemporary Sculpture, explore ways of animating the surface of a painting with homemade pastes, textural interventions and found materials based on acrylic paint. The techniques can be used to create abstract, figurative, or landscape images.

You will be working on supports such as board and canvas; materials will be provided but we recommend bringing your own brushes if you have them.

Please wear clothes and footwear suitable for a studio environment, and bring a bag or portfolio for taking work home with you on the last day.

Suitable for all abilities.
