Join us on Saturday 15th Augustfor a day of collage with Artist Maya Mitten.
Maya Mitten is a freestyle collage artist who uses her medium to create surrealist landscapes and snapshots of stories yet to be told - always with warmth and humour. Her work has somewhat of a cult following and her unique style is recognised internationally with much of her work displaying her trademark love for sound system culture. In this workshop session you will be guided through the process Maya Mitten uses to create her pieces, and be provided with tips on techniques and ideas on how to develop your own collage piece. All materials and equipment are provided and Maya provides handouts and further links she may think of interest to you as an individual. You'll leave this session inspired and never able to look at a magazine in the same way again!

It is common to find artists undertaking residencies in schools. This workshop inverts this idea and gives students/young people the opportunity to develop an independent style of learning and critique.
A three-day course in making, exhibition installation and arts management for young people considering studying Art at university, or those who have already started. Artist and Educator Ella Medley-Whitfield will take 10 young people on a creative and fun journey on how to be an Artist and, importantly, how to make a living out of it. Learning to work collaboratively, the young people will produce artworks inspired by the current exhibition PANGAEA II, and organise an exhibition of their work at the Saatchi Gallery. They will learn the necessary skills to face the challenge of organising an exhibition in just three days. On the third and final afternoon they will host a Private View for their family and friends.
Date: Friday 7th- Sunday 9th August
