Experimental mark making with Adele Gibson - Wednesday 15th and 22nd May 10.30 - 1pm.

Spaces limited to 8 people. Cost is £25 per session and includes basic materials.

Adele enjoys working on location using traditional and experimental techniques of mark making using both liquid (water-based) and dry materials. During this workshop we will visit the beach and Brunswick Square gardens (weather permitting) for visual inspiration and you will then be guided to make experimental marks in relationship to that experience. Adele will bring a selection of materials that you may not have used before and you are welcome to experiement with these.

We will be working on large sheets of paper (provided) and you will then be shown how to make an artist concertina book which can be further worked on. Some water-based materials e.g. liquid graphite and acyrlic inks, will be provided, please feel free to bring your own brushes and any materials that you enjoy using.

Chris Shaw Hughes - drawing workshop on Friday 17th May, 10.30 - 13.00[/b]

This new workshop by Chris Shaw Hughes isdesigned to show you how to overcome this problem.

Bring a photograph (no larger than 7 x 5, the more detailed and complicated the better) and go home with a drawing to be proud of. All tools and materials (except the photograph) provided.

Lunchtime walking workshops with Fleur Cowgill and Hilary Kennett : Thursday 16th and Thursday 23rd May[/b]

A 1 hour workshop with Fleur and Hilary in the vicinity of the Regency Town House, stopping at various points, to give participants a flavour of ways to record by mark making not only what they see but also what they hear, and maybe even what they smell.

In the hectic everyday in which we find ourselves, we are so used to internalising as we go about our lives. With the help of mark making exercises, you will be encouraged to really look, listen and smell with the aim of enhancing the way you research for your projects.

£15 per person, small sketchbook included. Please bring charcoal, crayons etc. to make marks

Maximum 15 people

About Adele:

Adele has been a practising professional artist for 8 years and has a background in teaching. She has an MA in Fine Art from the University of Brighton and a Post-Graduate Certificate in teaching. In her own work she enjoys experimentation with different materials. In her teaching, she aims to give a personalised experience for each attendee providing helpful tips to participants in order for their own artistic practices to move forward. Adele usually paints en plein air often using materials from the site to create unusual and evocative marks and then further develops these studies into oil paintings in her studio. Alongside self-representation, Adele has shown work in several galleries and has gallery representation from the Grain gallery Sherborne and Kevis House gallery, Petworth. In 2018 she was awarded a place on the prestigious Arctic circle residency and has been making work in response to that experience since. This work is on display at the Regency town house during the AOH fesitval. In July this year, Adele is organising and curating an exhibition and event at the University of Brighton, funded by Arts council England.
