We have begun to emerge from this lockdown with creative curiosity. Are workshops are almost ready to start again and we have venture out doing workshops and small events. We have been working MK Gallery, providing sensory boxes for families which has been so much fun. We have been busy behind the scenes preparing for festivals this summer. We will be pimping some pickers with The Rubbish Clowns at Bradford Fringe and we will be installing a temporary natural structure for The Burning Woman’s festival next month. We we continue to get out and about, keep an eye on updates for some open days at our studio. We have some exciting workshops coming your way.
We are all doing our part and staying home to keep everyone safe during this difficult time. We have been reminding ourselves that it’s ok to take a break from creative things, to stay at home and focus on our family. We have invited some new mindful practices into our day to day, and when we return to the studio we will try and introduce this into our work. Stay safe and remember work does not equal worth, you are all allowed to rest and take this time for yourself.
Oct- Dec 2020
There has been moments of creativity, moments of tears and despair, moments of contemplation and reflection and even study in these last few months. Unfortunately all workshops remained cancelled and the studio is a very quiet place without all the laughter and voices that usually fill the space. We are hoping to re-emerge new and improved in the new year but like all creatives around the world, we will wait and see. In the meantime, paint will still be thrown, outdoors will still be explored and mindful moments will not go unnoticed.
March- Sep 2020
We left the studio in March and have been getting creative at home with materials at hand. We have been producing some new work and learning some new skills. Alice has been using this time to try out lino cutting and printing, It’s a very therapeutic art form which has been vital during quarantine. Shauna has taken inspiration from the feelings that have arisen during lockdown. She has been using images that bombard our news screens and media to influence her work.
Yes, It’s been chilly and windy outside but that hasn’t stopped us from being busy bees this month. Rehearsals are well under way for our new show The Rubbish Clowns and we’ve already been spotted around Milton Keynes collecting rubbish and stealing peoples plastic bottles. Recycle Power! Our Workshop participants have been exploring all kinds of new materials this month, foam, clay, printing and even rice crispies. We had some new participants join us for the first time this month and we’ve had some fun with a few school groups.
We have started this year off with some relaxing and reflective workshops at the studio. Our participants have been easing themselves into 2020 with some sensory play and den building. Rehearsals have begun for The Rubbish Clowns, an interactive walk-about show that will be performed at festivals later in the year.
December is here and we’ve had a busy festive month. We’ve been clowning about with Nose to Nose clowning company, learning the importance and beauty of making mistakes. We have one of our Yoni Tree prints in the current We Are All Artists exhibition at MK Gallery, if you get a chance to see it, tell us what you think. You can also purchase the Yoni Tree prints here. Our workshops have been filling up and our participants have been up to all sorts of fun, mark making, printing with ink, puppet making and construction building. We wish all our participants a very relaxing and soothing Christmas and we will be back in the new year for more exploring. Merry Christmas from No Outcome Art.
This month has been wonderfully busy. Workshops are in full swing in the new studio and we are all enjoying the extra space to play and create. We have also been busy getting our prints ready to sell at this years Christmas Fayre and Arts Market at Milton Keynes Art Centre. We will be selling some of our natural prints at the market on 23rd and 24th November, alongside this you can see our new installation and take part in our fruit and vegetable printing workshop on 23rd November. There will be other workshops happening during the day by other wonderful artists; for more information on the event visit their website – https://miltonkeynesartscentre.org/. Bring all the family along to join in the festivities. We look forward to seeing you there.
This month we move into our new studio space at the south pavilion at Milton Keyes Art Centre. This space is larger and will allow us to run our workshops more effectively, it also allows us a more accessible space as we are now on the ground floor. Hurray. We love having our studio at MKAC and we are so pleased to continue working there in our new space.
Here are a few pictures and highlights from this months workshops. This month we have been exploring textures and mark making. Our participants have been busy discovering new ways of creating art and it has been wonderful to see. We have also been busy preparing to move studio as we already need a bigger space and have some great ideas for the next place.
