The Colour Composition Workshop | Kasia Breska

20th May | 10:30am - 3:30pm

The workshop is a large scale colour design activity, where participants are encouraged to experiment and play with colours, using large scale paper, paint and wall surface at The Artworks.

Kasia Breska - the artist who designed and runs the workshop specialises in urban art and large scale public artwork like murals and sculptures. You can find plenty examples of her work in Leeds, Huddersfield and abroad.

Using the techniques and materials from the street art scene, Kasia brings you closer to the ‘secrets’ behind the colour theory, unique tools, playful design and incredibly fun way of working.

Using standard masonry paint, rollers and brushes you can give it a go with designing your own colour through the process of mixing the paint and creating colour compositions unique for you.

Use templates prepared by the artist to easily design a striking composition. Experiment with diverse range of tools like rulers, spirit levels, ginormous compass tool, rollers, brushes and drawing tools on the sticks!

The aim of the workshop is to learn about the colour mixing, colour combinations and their composition and of course - to experiment and have fun. You can use the ideas from the workshop to decorate your own space and have a basic knowledge from the colour design. This can be applied almost everywhere: from graphic design to fashion, home decor, art and craft and architecture.

Please make sure you wear clothes suitable for the workshop. Stains may not be washable. Old t-shirt and worn out pair of jeans will be perfect. Additionally, plastic aprons are provided.

Painting Masterclass with Selma Makela

Friday 24th May 2019 | 10.00am till 3.00pm

Selma Makela will give a talk and presentation of her own working methods and techniques, and the themes that inform her practice.

Her paintings incorporate varied subject matter; large cosmic events, icebergs, fleeting moments, lone figures, journeys and weather to explore oblique connections to place and time.  She employs these to consider the transitory and fleeting nature of a human timescale seen against the backdrop of a larger geological timeline, and consider a multilayering history of place.

This 4 hour masterclass will explore different techniques and processes - demonstrating use of washes, colour theory and methods of overpainting in order to explore and create both depth and distance in painting.

All materials are included.
