Taking inspiration from the works in our exhibition The Expressive Mark, join artist Vincent James for this playful workshop exploring mark-making, collage and paper sculptures.
Using basic materials, learn simple art techniques to create mark-making, collage and sculptural works inspired by our latest exhibition, The Expressive Mark.
Led by artist Vincent James, you will experiment with expressive mark-making, pattern, texture and frottage techniques. By cutting, tearing and layering these elements you will create a series of abstract compositions. Together we will transform these shapes into three-dimensional forms and bring them together to make different sculptural assemblages.
Currently on display at The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery, The Expressive Mark celebrates the work of British artists in the second half of the 20th century.
Discover a crucial moment in the history of British art, a period where the influence of Abstract Expressionism in America was filtering across the Atlantic.
The inspired British artists produced works on a new scale that embraced the possibilities of abstraction. They also developed new signature mark-making techniques.
