In this workshop, participants will create their own colourful abstract artworks for exhibition in G1 using a mixture of art supplies and everyday materials.

Participants will practice DIY methods of painting, cutting, collage and craft techniques under the guidance of contemporary artist Julia Gorman. Participants will learn about painters and sculptors who use similar methods to create large-scale, abstract and site-specific work.

Artworks created during the workshop will be displayed in G1 and will feature prominently in the upcoming Abstraction + Non-Objective Painting exhibition at Kingston Arts Centre, featuring the works of Monash Art Design and Architecture students.

All participants will be invited to attend the exhibition launch on Tuesday 25 September, 6-8pm in G1 + G2.
