Celia Reisman and Hazel Walker will work collaboratively and separately with participants to explore new ways of developing and exploring the Burren landscape. There will be opportunities to work outdoors, in urban locations and in studio. The emphasis will be on experimenting with process and materials. A variety of approaches and techniques will be offered – drawing and painting exercises, simple printmaking, collage photo montage, etc., alongside presentations on contemporary artists and classroom discussions. Each day participants will be presented with a different approach to making work. Individual and group critiques will feature and provide new ways to devise ideas and directions.
Suitable for all levels.
