We recently welcomed artist Ian Murphy for a day’s workshop in which 3rd Year students explored his techniques and way of creating marks on paper.

The day started with a talk from Ian both from the 3rd Year and other keen artists from all ages. He showed us some of his work and explained his process of creating a finished piece. During the workshop, students explored a variety of different methods that Ian uses to bring his work to life, from the preparation of the paper beforehand to different shading techniques and the use of water in his work. Students were shown how to use pens, graphite markers, ink and bleach (!) on different textured papers to create a more eye-catching piece. It was a very enjoyable, informative and inspiring experience.
