Discover some of the most visually striking elements of the Op Art movement with illustrator Jessica Palmer, and create your own work of art using specialist papercutting and collage techniques. In this full-day workshop, students will visit the temporary exhibition, Seurat to Riley: The Art of Perception, before experimenting with paper cutting and collaging paper fragments -including vintage maps and text – to craft images inspired by the exhibits. Suitable for the expert or the absolute beginner.
