A creative workshop, ideal for 16 – 19 year olds or anyone at the first step of their art practice.
As part of Metal New Artist Network.
Crux, hosted by guest artist Scottee.
1 hour practical workshop, 30 mins of sharing and chatting.
Monday 9 November, 6pm – 7.30pm.
Crux is an introductory workshop led by Scottee which will help you stop sounding like an artist who is using big words for the sake of it.
This workshop will not help you make an artwork or realise an idea, instead it’s an evening of short scribbling tasks that help you understand why you wanna make work, who it is for and what is the reason you are making it.
In a time when our personal experiences are a driving force for making art, when political decisions are having direct effect on our lives and our understanding of what comes next after covid unknown, Scottee will help you distil your ideas and find your words.
This workshop would be useful for anyone wanting to find ways of articulating themselves and their work, for artists writing funding applications or those making / wanting to make work using text.

We will send you prioritised info on all future training events.

About Metal New Artist Network
Our online programmes aim to keep you creatively active and connected to your peers and cultural organisations. It’s a chance to learn new skills from professional artists and keep inspired. If a workshop is not in your art form, just have a go and see where it takes you ie If it’s a visual arts workshop then musicians and performers are also welcome.
Each workshop is followed by the chance to re-group in a supportive environment, to share the work you have created with others and consider what you might do with it. You can choose to attend the workshop and the sharing or just the workshop.
