SELF-EXPLORATION MIXED MEDIA WORKSHOP by Natasja De Wet

In the Self-Exploration Mixed Media Workshop, you will explore basic art-making techniques at your own pace. Unconventional mixed media will be used in these workshops in combination with acrylic and water-based paint and drawing materials, such as charcoal, pencil, ink and graphite. In this workshop, De Wet guides participants through a series of mixed media exercises which culminate in the creation of a mixed media artwork using a combination of the materials explored. In so doing, participants learn, share and create together, gently pushing the boundaries and awakening their inner creative worlds.

SELF-EXPLORATION PAINTING WORKSHOP by Natasja De Wet

SELF-EXPLORATION PAINTING WORKSHOP

The Self-Exploration Painting Workshop encourages free, open-minded, expressionistic exploration of different painting techniques on canvas that push the boundaries of how participants understand painting. The combination of thick, opaque, bold paint, layering and sensitive brushstrokes is a subtle yet mindful approach to contemporary art making. This workshop will investigate an array of methods by which to apply paint to a surface, including using various brush sizes, application tools and spray bottles with water-based (acrylic) paint. The workshop will culminate in the production of an abstract work that incorporates some recognizable images or objects.

SELF-EXPLORATION MIXED-MEDIA ART WORKSHOPS: by Natasja De Wet

SELF-EXPLORATION MIXED-MEDIA WORKSHOPS: Exploring basic art techniques through a variety of media, with the emphasis on developing art-making skills at your own pace. Acrylic and water-based paint and drawing materials, such as charcoal, pencil, ink, graphite and many other experimental and unconventional mixed media.

Aim of the workshop: We start by working with, and applying different media and doing a series of mixed-media exercises; then we create a mixed-media artwork, combining all or some of the media. In so doing, we learn, share and create together. Thus we push our own boundaries gently by exploring and awakening our inner creative world.

SELF-EXPLORATION PAINTING WORKSHOPS: This painting workshop is free and expressionistic, by exploring different painting techniques on canvas, with an open mindset. The application and combination of thick opaque bold paint, subtle layering and sensitive brushstrokes, using various brush sizes, sponges, spray bottles with water-based paint (acrylic), and/or different vehicles on a surface is a subtle but mindful approach to contemporary art making. The aim is to explore and push the media, and learn through the creation of an abstract work with some recognizable images or objects.
