Contemplating Colour & Collage - new adult workshops at The Charterhouse, London.

Alex Roberts is part of a team providing art workshops at the nation's living community of Brothers, the Charterhouse.

Contemplating Colour and Collage

Thursday 21 June, 10:00 – 15:00

The Charterhouse welcomes you to follow in the footsteps of Patrick Rowe (1917-2013) a professional artist who became a Brother of Charterhouse in 2002. Discover his colourful paper collages before creating your own art work in this hands-on workshop.

This day long workshop will start with an accompanied tour of the Charterhouse and summer blossoming gardens. Participants will be encouraged to visually forage for personal artefacts and findings that stir their imagination. Following this, there will be a practical period to loosely sketch, play with colour and light, before producing a striking collage. The workshop will make introduce and make of both traditional and experimental collage methods.

Your tutor, Alex Roberts, is a British artist and collaborative researcher who curates and educates. Alex lives and works between Berlin and the UK and has a breadth of experience delivering creative workshops to people of all ages and abilities.

All art materials provided. Please bring an apron if desired.
