Time: 4:30pm – 6pm
In 1924, Surrealism swept the art world by storm. Think Salvador Dali or Andre Breton. Surrealist artists aimed to channel the unconscious to unlock their creativity and imagination. They proposed that one should bypass reason and rationality, encouraging chance and spontaneity in artistic practices.
Participating students will explore chance and the relationship between modes of conscious and subconscious mind, illuminating their creative process. Additionally, we will also incorporate the game of ‘exquisite corpses’ (a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled) to spark a manifestation of creativity that can be fantastic and often juxtaposed in extraordinary ways. So rather than just being in a natural world with precise and planned drawings, let’s embrace and allow our art to be led by uncertainty, slightly weird yet wonderful!
Children who attend a workshop during September holidays will receive one experiential digital illustration or Papyrus kraft class!
