Approaching art in an accessible and fun manner, our goal is to readdress the gender imbalance in the art world by reinserting women of all backgrounds back into the canon of art history. We’re offering a combination of Art Historical lectures and creative Practical Workshop’s that aim to celebrate women artists. This interactive, weekly course is perfect for developing contextual knowledge and building on a practical artistic skill set. During the evening you will learn about women artists in a theoretical framework. You will then take part in a practical workshop that’s inspired by the artist in focus practice. This is subject to change each week. For example week one will be focusing the renowned Lee Krasner (1908 – 1984). There will be an academic lecture drawing on the theoretical context of the abstract expressionists, which will then be followed by a collage workshop that takes inspiration from Krasner’s collage on canvas series. Each session will follow this particular structure, using a women artist as the focus for both the lecture and the practical workshop.
