Create your own abstract expressionist cityscapes and explore how the world around us affects our wellbeing.

Join artist Daksha Patel and Imperial researcher Rhiannon Thompson for a drawing and collage workshop as they discuss the impact of the environment upon our mental health.

Rhiannon is a PhD student working as part of the SCAMP (Study of Cognition, Adolescents and Mobile Phones) study, investigating the impact of pollution on young people’s mental health

At this Imperial Lates art workshop she will team up with Daksha Patel to discuss her work and explore how the creative process and artistic techniques such as mark making, abstract expressionism and collage processes can reveal our embodied emotional response to the physical stressors of city life.

  • 5-10 sheets of paper or card A4 or larger
  • Scissors
  • Sellotape and pritt stick
  • One or more of the following for drawing and mark-making: pencils (soft 2B – 6B), graphite sticks, black marker pen, coloured felt tips, coloured pencils or pastels
