Call for artists

Porthmeor Art Collective-Calling all young creatives for exhibition!

Free online 5‑week project, paint­ing from scratch to pub­li­caly exhibit­ing your art­work. 13 – 16’s

We are giving young people the opportunity to develop an industry standard artwork that will be exhibited in association with St. Ives School of Painting.

Our up-and-coming artist Caleb Richards will lead a set of five free online workshops.

You will explore five major steps in creating a final outcome that includes drawing, concept, composition, and painting. Once the workshops have been completed, the School of Painting will curate a one day exhibition of all the students’ final outcomes. With a Private View, friends, family, and the public will be invited to see your artwork in a St Ives venue.

Throughout the workshops our central focus will be on the multi-talented Afro-British artist, Michael Armitage. As a leading artist in contemporary, figurative art, Armitage is a legend on the contemporary art scene.

4.30pm to 6pm.

Dates: 12th October until 9th November.
