Looking, thinking, making in Contemporary Art Practice


Join us for this open and friendly practical class, looking at the exhibitions, the building and location, using them as a springboard for exploring contemporary art practice.

We will use a range of 2D and 3D art materials, such as pens, pastels, charcoal, paint, collages, and cardboard, to explore different genres and themes. Activities will include drawing, painting, collage, zine-making, small sculptures, phone photography, and printmaking.

In partnership with East Sussex College. Please visit the East Sussex College website to book, and for more information.
