About the Event
Watching someone create, using skills honed over years, is such a joyful and inspiring thing. This special Animal-Artists in Action session is part of a series exploring (and generally geeking-out over), artists who celebrate the natural world in their work.
I always wanted the Elephant in the Room sessions to be a friendly and relaxing space to create, so I'm not going to go all formal on you now! These feature sessions are designed to give everyone a brilliant insight into the creative process of another artist, whilst still having the opportunity to be creative yourself, under your own steam. We'll all be able to see both the imagery the artist is working from, as well as watching the artist's action itself. You can choose to draw, paint or doodle away whilst listening to all the creative chat, or, simply watch in awe at another creative mind at work!
Kate Slater is not only a supremely talanted artist & illustrator, she's also a thoroughly wonderful human to boot! She specialises in the technique of paper collage to create the most beautiful depictions of wildlife - it's mind bogglingly clever! We'll be able to watch the magic as it happens and find out all her trade secrets! Why not bring along scissers, glue stick and some paper collaging material, bringing some collage into your own practice?!
All levels of creatives are welcome to these sessions and there is never any pressure to share your work if you don't want to. What you can expect is to find an encouraging group of animal-loving artists who love the challenge of drawing all creatures great and small, feathered or fishy, we love them all!
PLEASE ARRIVE IN PLENTY OF TIME - the sessions are always jam-packed with footage so I try to start promptly at 7pm so it's a good idea to jump on the zoom ten mins beforehand to get settled. I can of course let you in if you arrive late (I'm no meany!) : )
