PRACTICEXPERIMENT is artist-educator Dr Puy Soden’s new programme of events to enable more people to access experimental, process-led art-making. These day workshops are for anyone looking to learn about art-making processes and to experiment with materials and methods in a fun, supportive space.
There are four different workshops that repeat and alternate on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in August 2021. Each workshop focuses on the 'how' of art-making, and encourages participants to test methods and materials which are new to their practice. This listing is for the 4th in the series: FIGURE-GROUND.
I believe that the figure-ground function is the fundamental issue of painting. By exploring how figure-ground relationships can change around in the perception of artworks, a new world of painting/art-making possibilities will open up to those who attend this workshop. Participants will be given the opportunity to learn how the image and the background relate through three-dimensional experiments, colour theory tests, and their own practice-led experiments using materials of their choice. Context: various artworks from prehistoric cave paintings to the present day.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
The workshops run from 10am to 3pm and cost £58 per person per day. Materials are provided as well as safety equipment when appropriate (gloves, goggles, dust masks). The venue is a town-centre location. Unfortunately, due to Covid 19 protocol, refreshments cannot be provided. However, there are plenty of places nearby to buy food and drink.
COVID-19 distancing and sanitisation procedures in place.
