We are working with artist Anouk Mercier throughout the year and she is creating a work of art inspired by the ‘Genius of the Place’. Whilst with us, she is running artist workshops to help others get inspired by this special place and share her own processes.
Anouk begins by collecting images that are historically and visually disparate, and combines these to create her own original artwork of landscapes and scenes.
She is hosting a drop in workshop for families on Monday 7 May, 1-3.30pm at Stourhead. This is a drawing and collage-based workshop inspired by the Stourhead art collection. Exploring themes of travel, landscape design and the Grand Tours, this workshop is suitable for all abilities, where a practiced artist, budding amateur or simply someone who wants to learn some new skills.
