Manual Animal: Art Workshop by Blouzaat @ Makan
December 3, 2008
Street:Nadim Al-Mallah Street
This art workshop is all about manually produced art, I will ask all of you to choose their own mediums and projects, be it graffiti, animation, posters... anything you want to do as long as no computers are involved!
The workshop will last at least four hours a day, but for those who are intent on giving me a stroke, the night is long and we're all young.. who needs sleep anyway? those of you who manage to drive me insane, make me throw up or make me feel like giving up and going home, will earn my deepest respect. I want us all to come through this workshop surprised and a little schitzo, and hopefully in one piece.
Unfortunately, this workshop will not be for free. There will be a participation fee, to be announced shortly.
combining different techniques, even those that don´t match,
sharing knowledge and skills,
coming up with things you have never dreamt off ;) or not!
Bring whatever tools that suit your ideas... for instance:
stencil, sticker, marker, ink, knife, scissor, brushes, linoleum tools, spray cans, color (whatever you have in mind, anything that smears, marks, or drips), cameras, (which can be used for stop motion animation, for example)
each one of you has to come up with an idea, which I will help develop and make presentable to an audience. We may also form small groups that put all their efforts and skills together into one big THING, whatever that thing might be.
An exhibition will be held on the 28th of December displaying all the artwork and projects created during the workshop, with live performance by a German musician "lilabungalow"
Poster for the exhibition: this must be done before Christmas, which means extra work for whoever likes to work even closer with me) ;) please decide after I have introduced myself.
If interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org / 0777454145 Please send your contact information as well as small portfolio or samples of your work. The artwork could be fully developed pieces, sketches or art-in-the-making.
