In this workshop participants are encouraged to explore technique of creating artwork using cardboard, paper, ordinary objects and photographs. With the help of these simple materials we will make mixed media installation where ordinary objects become transformed into precious carriers of experience and memories. The workshop doesn’t require previous experience in this technique. It is open to participants of all artistic abilities. A willingness to engage in the artistic process and to be open to new possibilities is strongly encouraged. A professional artist will provide guidance on how to create mixed-media artwork installation and will share her tips for improving the work. The participants are invited to choose one of the provided small items or bring their own objects they would like to “preserve”. Participants would be able to create their own small-scale artwork or work in a group to create one large-scale piece. Together we will create, explore and better understand art in its various forms.REGISTER
I’m planning to continue working on my current series, exploring the issue of immigration and displacement and developing new body of mixed-media works.
