Join us for an informal Twilight session exploring contemporary artists in relation to the practice and paintings of Alison Watt. Please note this is a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) event aimed at teachers and educators.

Eddie Summerton, internationally acclaimed exhibiting Artist, Curator and Senior lecturer at Duncan of Jordanstone college of Art and Design, will offer up a celebration of artworks and artists that will inspire, intrigue and occasionally maybe even antagonise.

The afternoon will start with Alison Watt's work, looking at the artworks that have influenced her practice, then head off on a roller coaster ride of fantastic works that teachers, pupils and practicing artists can get excited about.

This event will provide you with an introduction to exciting, and perhaps unfamiliar, contemporary painters as inspiration and reference points in the classroom and beyond.

Time will also be included to explore the Alison Watt exhibition.

This event is free but advanced booking is required - via creative.generation2014@gmail.com
