BE A PART OF OUR

ONLINE CREATIVE WORKSHOPS

Welcome to The VC Gallery's Online Creative Workshops. You're a few clicks away from embarking on a fully interactive, virtual workshop specialising in either creative writing, or art, or both. These workshops are designed to fill a huge creativity gap in the arts. They will be run by award-winning artist, Nina Camplin, and stand-up performer and writer, James Silbers. As well as providing you with an artistic outlet, these workshops are a means of combatting social isolation during these difficult times.


These workshops are for everyone, but especially the digitally-excluded. So please, don't be put off by the virtual aspect of these ground-breaking workshops. If you're not the hottest online, we'll make sure you're able to take part by sending SOS Art boxes and by offering one-to-one telephone mentoring. We can't wait to see what you'll create. It's our hope that these workshops will give people the confidence to access The VC Gallery in the future in order to socialise and express themselves through art.

MEET THE CREATIVES

NINA CAMPLIN

ARTIST

Nina Camplin is a mural artist based in Rhondda Cynon Taf, Wales, specialising in trompe l’oeil. She is interested in challenging perceptions of space and creating scenes of faked realities, such as windows, doors and broken walls that open up the flat surface of the wall to give the viewer the optical illusion of an additional dimension beyond. She has worked on many public art projects nationwide, receiving commissions from various Councils including Luton, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Southampton, Isle of Wight, Dorset, and Poole and has won 2 Design Awards for her subway murals in Luton. She has exhibited her paintings in many shows across the UK and her work varies from abstract to photorealistic, depending upon the current project she is working on. Most recently, she has been using recycled canvasses to work on, mixing the realistic with the abstract, allowing snippets of the original painting to show through in the final work.

JAMES SILBERS

CREATIVE WRITER

Creative writing to me is a fun and therapeutic form of expression to find out what is going on in my inner world. I started my own creative writing journey while I was traveling and writing down what was going on in a daily journal. I then started reading my daily thoughts to friends and found out they liked it and they suggested I start doing stand up poetry, so I did!
