IMAGE AND IMAGERY

Beatrijs Lauwaert

#visual arts #reading images #experiment #reflection

Are you fascinated by visual arts?

This is your chance to mix and match: drawing, painting, working with clay, assemblages, collages, installations, pictures ...

Investigate, reflect, start a dialogue and step out of your comfort zone.

 

In this workshop you learn by doing: what makes an image strong, and do your images say what you want them to say? You will mainly work independently and with individual input from your coach. The daily group discussion will help you to view your own creation and those of others with a more critical eye, and give you a new way of "reading" the images.

The big challenge is to push back the boundaries and let images emerge by experimenting with different materials, along with a large dose of surprise and delight.
