Learn how to build up layers to create abstract paintings with cold wax, full of texture and depth. The workshop will also look at fun mark-making techniques using a range of tools and materials. Young artists will leave with a small series of works on paper and new knowledge of this fun and diverse medium. 

For young artists aged 11-16, this group helps young people connect with their creativity and get to know contemporary art practices.

My teaching focuses on sharing my ideas, enthusiasm and techniques, in a playful and experimental way. My aim is that participants will come together to learn and explore and to start to develop their own visual language, which they can use as a springboard for their own studio work.
