SEA MEMORIES AND WATER ART PROJECT
28/04/2014 - 08/05/2014
This community outreach workshop was inspired by the exhibition by Tania Kovats, Oceans for people in residential care. It was delivered in two phases one in the gallery followed up by a visit in the Eagle Lodnge Care Home, Edinburgh
The Fruitmarket Gallery programmes exhibitions with the best Scottish and International artists and enriches these with a wide variety of cultural and educational events.
Phase 1 - Sea Memories
The aim of the workshop was to engage with the exhibition Oceans by the artist Tania Kovats, Oceans trough reminiscence and one’s personal experience of the sea. This could be cultural, visual or sensory. Inspired by the exhibition the participants were encouraged to make simple drawings and marks or collages that capture personal memories of the sea and coastline.
