The “Creative Concepts” 3 Day Design Workshop: Educate your Imagination
Wed, 24 May 2017, 09:00 – Fri, 26 May 2017, 17:00 IST
University College Cork Library is honoured to be hosting the “Creative Concepts” workshop, an exciting workshop created by Alyssa Hinton, internationally recognized mixed media artist and art educator from the United States. She is also the great great grand daughter of George Boole.
The "Creative Concepts" workshop was designed to help students and staff of varied levels and disciplines expand their perceptive ability and intuitive intelligence. Drawing and collage will serve as the basis for exploring and conveying provocative themes and concepts.
Create visual analogies, composite a personal narrative, see and draw sounds, synthesize natural structures, or transform a photograph! Unusual, yet cohesive solutions to visual problems are found by tricking the rational mind into “losing its grip.”
The workshop will run for three days, divided into morning and afternoon sessions. We will start with a more personal exercise in self-reflection/expression using collage, a mixing-and-matching activity as creativity warms up. This then leads into projects using skills and concepts that subtly build upon one another. The culminating project, ”Seeing and Drawing Sounds,” offers more leeway, allowing for the free adaptation of the skills and concepts covered.
