Portraits at TAPE Community Arts

Type of Event: Art Workshop

TAPE Community Arts Centre is offering two afternoon workshops on 9th and 16th May, as part of their Poke the Muse group sessions.

In these workshops we will work together to build up portraits of each other through words and images. The idea is that people seldom look at themselves in a kindly light, so we are inviting them to work with a partner to ‘tease’ each other’s stories out and bring out the best in each other. Work can take any form they wish, prose, poetry, drawing, painting or a mixture of any!

Participants will be invited to submit artwork or writing developed during and after the event, for inclusion in a collection of outcomes and a month long exhibition which will open during the Gwanwyn Festival.

Aiming to offer a creative ‘oasis’, whatever your experience or skill, these sessions offer the opportunity to work in a relaxed setting with materials on hand to explore portraiture in writing or art.

There will be plenty of inspiration and guidance, if required. On hand too, will be pencils, pens, paper, paints, rollers, stamps and other materials to use as you wish.
