Artist Connect at Gallery M.I

Event details

Artist Connect

The next session will be Friday 5th July- 11:00 – 13:00

As artists we are often working in solitude. Artist Connect is an opportunity to meet other artists and discuss your work in an inspiring space.

In this next session we’re going to have a focus to talk around and also a creative activity to carry out whilst we chat.

Tea/coffee and biscuits included.

Open to all.

The focus will be – how we get through creative blocks

It can be a challenge and frustrating when all we want to do is get making, but we’re not sure what to do or where to start, the ideas aren’t flowing. When this happens sometimes it can be difficult to make anything at all.

We will discuss what things work for each of us to get things moving and hopefully spread some ideas between us for when this strikes.

Activity: Collage play

Something that works for me is to play with materials and enjoy the process rather than focusing on the outcome. We’re going to have a play with cutting and sticking to experiment with collage.

Things to bring (if you have them)

– sketchbook or paper

– pencil/ charcoal

– some things to collage with, this can be coloured paper, magazines, printouts of your own work you’d like to reimagine, wool, string, ribbon … (anything you have already)

Glue will be provided.

Show what you’re working on

Artist connect is a chance for some peer support on your work. You are welcome to bring something with you to show the group, or bring some photos if the work is large.

Book your place through the website.
