Join us for a creative workshop inspired by Félix Vallotton: Painter of Disquiet.

This exhibition reveals the vision of Félix Vallotton (1865–1925), a masterful painter and printmaker who captured the emotional undercurrents of Paris at the turn of the last century.

By the end of the 19th century, Paris was the unrivalled capital of the Western art world. Impressionism had transformed the visual arts, and Post-Impressionism was flourishing in its wake. Into this dynamic world arrived the 16-year-old Swiss artist, Félix Vallotton. He became closely involved with a group of artists known as Les Nabis, which included Pierre Bonnard and Édouard Vuillard, adopting their decorative painterly language and sharing their interest in journalistic illustration and Japanese ukiyo-e prints.

In this session, two artist educators support participants to view and respond to a variety of artworks in the show. Afterwards, they will be guided to create their own artworks in response to the pieces they’ve seen and discussed in the exhibition.

These workshops are designed for groups working with disabled adults or adults facing barriers to engaging with arts and culture. We advise groups be fewer than 15 people to ensure everyone attending is properly supported to engage with the workshop.
