Painting Encounters at the Saatchi gallery

Attention Year 9 & 10 students! During the Easter break the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea are running several practical painting workshops. This comprises five sessions, each lasting an hour and a half, which explore ways of handling paint. Through practical exercises, students will be introduced to a wide range of processes and techniques, enabling them to enhance their own artistic practice. This series of workshops is aimed at year 9 and 10 pupils embarking upon G.C.S.E Art and Design. The workshop leader, Yiannis Hayiannis, is a practising artist and teacher currently undertaking a Phd in Art and Design Education.

The course dates are as follows; Tuesday 3rd April, Wednesday 4th April, Tuesday 10th April, Wednesday 11th April and Friday 13th April. It is recommended that students attend all five of the sessions as the workshops are intended as a sequential course in creative inquiry. The workshops will be from 1:30pm- 3:00pm each day and are free of charge. There are a limited number of places.

To book a place, please email education@saatchigallery.com.
