Ages 8-12yrs

This workshop will be a playful look at sculpture, with an emphasis on an instinctive approach to creating sculptural work. Participants will explore an array of materials, such as clay, cardboard, feathers and pipe cleaners to collage and construct improvised sculptural forms.

Marcel Vidal makes paintings and sculptures. He graduated from the National College of Art and Design in 2009. He works intuitively with a variety of materials, constructing distinctive sculptures, that often stage and frame his paintings. His approach to sculpture and its assembled chaos and combative insistence is strongly contrasted by his paintings made in oil and watercolour. Vidal’s paintings are restrained, often withholding information, through rigorous cropping in an attempt to frustrate interpretation. The convergence of these two modes of production and their aesthetic contrast is what interests him.
