Inspired By… Agnes Martin

Winchester City Museum is proud to host a collection of artworks produced by A-Level Fine Art students from Peter Symonds College, Winchester inspired by the work of Agnes Martin.

The students took part in a day of art workshops led by artists from The Colour Factory. The workshops and art form one part of the Inspired By… Agnes Martin project.

During the project, the students had the opportunity to visit the ARTIST ROOMS: Agnes Martin exhibition that was on display at The Gallery, Winchester Discovery Centre, to experience the work of Agnes Martin, one of America’s foremost abstract painters. After their visit they took part in a series of workshops led by working artists, gaining experience in a wide range of techniques and materials and creating their own work inspired by their responses.   

The Inspired By… Agnes Martin project was a creative partnership between Hampshire Cultural Trust, Peter Symonds College and The Colour Factory, and aimed to inspire young people through engagement with the ARTIST ROOMS: Agnes Martin exhibition. It was supported by ARTIST ROOMS, a collection of modern and contemporary art jointly owned by National Galleries of Scotland and Tate as a resource for the nation.
