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.
