SATURDAY 27th FEBRUARY:
1 Day Workshop with SHAZIA IMRAN – ‘Mixed Media’
Australian artist and sculptor, Shazia Imran is best known for her expressive mixed media pieces. She draws her inspiration from her travels, exploring the infinite expressiveness of her subjects through watercolours, acrylics and mixed media.
Her delicately multi-layered paintings explore the connections between landscape, memory and the subconscious through texture and the interplay of light and dark, creating an atmosphere that opens itself to multiple meanings.
Shazia was featured on the TV show Colour Your Life. She demonstrated how to create a figurative mixed media painting. The recording is available at shazia.com.au/tv.
Her works have been exhibited internationally and hang in private collections in the US, UK and Australia.
She is currently exhibiting her work in New York and Sydney. She recently won the Lorenzo il Magnifico Award for Mixed Media in the 2015 Florence Biennale, Italy.
During this workshop Shazia will guide students of all artistic levels through the steps of creating their own mixed media painting on canvas. This will be created using tissue paper and collage as the base and then acrylic washes and paints will be applied to form a mixed media surface. Drawing will be done with charcoal, oil pastels and finished with acrylic paints.
Shazia will also touch on the basics of composition and the colour wheel during the session.
