The ARTBOURNE Weekend Workshops for 2019 will utilise the talents of several of our ARTBOURNE artists and our permanent artist in residence, Head of Arts Glen Jorna. 

We are delighted to announce that the first workshop is an ‘Expressive Drawing Weekend Workshop’  on Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th May, in the Wellesley Art room, will be with exciting multimedia artist Sian Torrington and she will be collaborating with Glen Jorna.  

Join Sian Torrington & Glen Jornas' 'Expressive Drawing' Workshop  and learn how to break down abstract work into energetic mark making and embodied, fun explorations of colour and form. Sian and Glen will run through exercises to build a shared library of vibrant and powerful marks making, then weave these together into your own finished works.

For your diary, the second weekend workshop will be with the 2019 Artist in Residence (Natchez Hudson).  Registrations for this will open later in the year. The third workshop will take place in Term 4, 2019 with an artist to be announced. 

As with  the ARTBOURNE exhibition, the net proceeds from this workshop support the Wellesley College Foundation’s Scholarship Fund 'Promising Futures for Boys. This endowment fund supports boys who would not otherwise be able to experience a Wellesley education because of financial constraint.

For more information about our Artist in Residence programme, and the ARTBOURNE Weekend Workshop series, please visit ARTBOURNE and please remember to register if you would like to attend the workshop.

Thank you for your support of the arts @ Wellesley.
