Artist in residence
On Halloween, 14 local residents decided against going guising and came to a drawing workshop at the A.I.R space instead!
This marked the start of our ‘Winter in the AIR’ workshops, a series of 12 free workshops delivered by the artists in residence at the Portal. The workshops have started with an introduction to drawing and mark making with Alex Bowie, will then continue with watercolour and paint with Fiona Fleming and end with graphic design and screen printing with Geraldine Greene. Each section is 4 weeks long, making the class a perfect opportunity for participants to try their hand at a few things.
This round of classes is fully booked but we will run the block again in the new year. We are also open to suggestions as to what people would like to come to and will endeavour to try and run the classes that people want. It has been wonderful getting folk into the space and getting creative. I had to share this photo of the group drawing blindfolded to music on Thursday evening. Govan has a lot of talented artists out there!
