Julie Mitchell will explore “the shape of your mind” in a creative hands-on art and design workshop based on the 2018 artworks that she created with Merseyside Youth Association exploring young people’s mental health in education (subsequently installed at Tate Exchange Liverpool, receiving 12,000 visitors). Come along and begin to ‘find your visual voice’ using various media, tools and resources. Increase awareness of your emotions and ideas through creation and, perhaps seeing what otherwise may have remained hidden.
Julie is a professional artist and qualified teacher. Her work with students has been exhibited at London’s National Gallery, Salford Lowry, Chester Cathedral, and shared at Liverpool Tate Exchange. She is the lead practitioner in Art and Design and Design Technology for IGNITE.
