The increased number of online exhibitions in the past year has allowed for wider access to art and has opened up new avenues of creation. Join us for a workshop exploring how you can take advantage of the newly popular online exhibition space and make your own 3D modelled exhibition using SketchUp.
The event is divided into two parts: a workshop and an exhibition tour.
In the first part, you’ll learn the basics of SketchUp, a free 3D modelling computer programme used by galleries to plan exhibitions. The workshop will take you through building walls to scale, dropping in artworks, and adding furniture to your exhibition.
You can sign up for a free (personal use) SketchUp account ahead of the event and follow along building your own exhibition walls. We’ll be using artworks by artist Róisín Phelan for the workshop, and then Róisín will join us for the second part of the event.
After we’ve built the exhibition we’ll virtually walk through it, and you’ll have the chance to put your questions to Róisín in a short Q&A after.The workshop will run from 6.30-8pm on Zoom, and the login details will be sent out on the day of the event.
Tickets are £4 or £2 for YPIA members.
Róisín Phelan is a mixed media artist with an interest in the relationship between craft and Fine art. Her work centres around the idea of quiet contemplation and the ‘in-between’ moments that often pass unnoticed amongst the chaos of everyday life. Through her tapestries, Phelan documents her relationship with the home; as an embroiderer it is intertwined with undertones of the family through a medium once confined to the domestic. Having graduated from The University of Westminster in July 2020, Phelan has been exploring the reciprocal nature between material and maker from her makeshift home studio.
