In response to the exhibition ‘re•play, artist Rowan Paton will be running a drawing workshop on Saturday 23rd June in The Suttie Arts Space, ARI, followed by a closing reception.
In this workshop, participants will be introduced to themes of play, pattern and mark-making. By responding to the work in the exhibition and the space itself, the participants can then gather and create their own patterns, using their findings to contribute to Rowan’s wall drawing 'Make Your Own National Park'. This workshop invites viewers to engage with the artwork in a new way and become collaborators, leaving their individual mark whilst contributing to the work as a whole.
Each participant involved will be given opportunity to create his or her own addition to Rowan’s mural and create floor design extending out from original work, using a range of materials including chalks, tape and pens.
The workshop is suitable for beginners, experienced artists, children and everyone in between and participants are welcome to drop-in and stay for as long as they like.
Please join us for a few drinks and nibbles on the penultimate day of ‘re•play’. As well as an opportunity to view the show before it ends, we invite people to pop in and see the results of Rowan’s workshop and meet some of the artists from the exhibition.
