Fire In The Soul! | Dream Monsters and Surrealist Art | The Language of Art and the Art of Language


Session 1
Fire In The Soul!
22nd Jan 2022, 10am - 3.30pm
Kandinsky: "Each colour lives by its mysterious life (...) - to create an artwork is to create the world." Painting with Matisse, Miro, Picasso, Leger and Kandinsky you will gain an insight into their techniques, use of shape, colour and composition; as well as the ideas behind the artworks. Inspired by their thoughts and works - which according to Miro "must be conceived with fire in the soul but executed with clinical coolness" - you will create your own colourful portfolio of masterpieces and ideas!

Session 2
Dream Monsters and Surrealist Art
5th Feb 2022, 10am - 3.30pm
Surrealist artists took inspiration from dreams, the unconscious mind, and memories of childhood. We shall make artworks inspired by the Surrealists' images and by drawing our own experiences and memories. We shall use elements of chance and randomness to create our own surrealist works in a variety of media.
