This workshop focus on TRADITIONAL AND NEW MATERIALS IN THE ARTS (The twentieth century up to today). In the lecture at the beginning of each class I will show important artworks of European, American, Japanese and Chinese artists with a host of visual materials and hand-outs. In the following workshop the students will produce mainly three-dimensional artworks, experimenting with wood, fabric, string and other materials. At the end of the course the students will have the chance to show their artworks in a group exhibition.
The students will achieve practical experience in producing three-dimensional artworks. They will learn how to express themselves in diverse materials. The students will expand their basic knowledge about important trends in the visual arts and will train their sensitive perception.
