Etching and nature exploration workshop with artist Jake Holmes for youth and young adults aged 15-25 years in Tea Tree Gully SA.
As part of this October’s Mental Health month, Gallery 1855 (Council’s community arts facility in Tea Tree Gully at 2 Haines Road Tea Tree Gully) are offering a 2-part workshop for youth and young adults aged 15 – 25 years. It is facilitated by artist Jake Holmes who has experience working with young people and also works in the arts-in-health sector.
About the workshop:
Over two sessions Jake offers dry point etching guidance underpinned by a mindful and immersive exploration of the natural environment surrounding Gallery 1855.
Participants will explore their own place in nature and their community while learning to etch and make prints using Jake's printing press. Depending on the amount of time, Jake may also incorporate some collagraph printmaking as well. This workshop supports personal well-being, renewal and resilience through art making.
The cost to the participant is $30 for both sessions and participants are expected to commit to both sessions to achieve the best outcomes.
All materials are provided and resulting prints will be shown on the gallery page on the CTTG website.
