ART STUDENTS TO CREATE WINDOW WITH A VIEW OF EUROPE
A group of young artists are set to transform an empty retail space in Manchester city centre from a blank canvas into a celebration of Europe thanks to a masterclass from a leading UK street artist.
Pupils from St Ambrose Barlow High School in Swinton will work alongside vinyl designer Matt Jones to illustrate and create a window mural which will bring life to the vacant unit at ‘Piccadilly Place’ on Friday 21st May.
During the workshop Matt will assist the year ten students, who are currently studying for a BTEC in art and design, through the design process from start to finish. Along with other leading artists from Spearfish Workshops Matt will help them to develop their separate ideas into one coherent mural piece. Using vibrant uni POSCA marker pens the pupils will then transfer what they believe represents’ European culture’ onto the glass frontage for all to see.
The workshop will run in conjunction with Eurocultured Street Festival Manchester which is sponsored by uni Posca and takes place on the 30th and 31st of May. Since 2004 Eurocultured has celebrated the diversity of European culture and showcases the best live art, dance, performance and music that our continent has to offer.
The workshop will take place on Friday 21st May between 2pm and 6pm at Piccadilly Place, Manchester (across the road from Piccadilly train station via the Manchester Curve Bridge).
