This workshop focus on "Modern Life/Life in the Big Cities" reflected in the arts. In the lecture at the beginning of each class I will introduce the artworks of important European, American and Japanese artists with a host of visual materials and hand-outs. In the following workshop the students will learn how to express themselves in artworks. They will experiment with different kind of technics and materials, including drawing, painting, collage, photography, printing, using a model and others. At the end of the course the students will have the chance to show their artworks in a group exhibition.
