Painting Pigeons © Hollie Prior


Artists from the University of Gloucestershire will be joining us to share their artistic skills with you during their exhibition Material Thinking.

This is an unique opportunity to work with a practising artist and learn more about their work. You will have the chance to create artwork that shows you new techniques to use to build your art portfolio.

Artist, Hollie Prior will join us to share her recent project of Pigeons and their place in the world, so that you can also take part in the project. 

Learning how to paint birds, can be a great way for beginners to start learning to paint with animals.  You can use your imagination as well as any photos you have to create your own style of bird artwork. Hollie will help you learn the techniques needed to paint pigeons on pieces of wood, before sharing them with the environment outside.

All materials are provided.

This workshop is subsidised by The University of Gloucestershire to keep the selling price low.

For 11-16 years.  Please note that the artist is only able to work with children of this age group.
