This workshop is based on the meaning and expression of SPACE in the arts. In various materials and technics the students will learn how to express themselves in artworks, focussing on space. In the lecture at the beginning of each class I will introduce the artworks of important European, American and Japanese artists with lots of visual materials and hand-outs. The students will learn how to experiment with different kinds of materials and technics, including drawing, painting, collage and three-dimensional objects and spaces. At the end of the course they will have the chance to show their artworks in a group exhibition.
The students will enlarge their sensitive perception of artworks and its various ways of expression. They will achieve basic practical knowledge in how to use materials and how to find sensitive ways in expressing themselves.
