In this class, you will learn about the 1920s movement that changed the face of Modern Art: Dadaism.
You will learn of the great Marcel Duchamp, Picasso's collages, Man Rays collages and learn how to embellish your art with gold/silver/copper leafing for a very special touch.
Dada was nonconsequential, absurd and revoked all rules.
Anti-art is a loosely used term applied to an array of concepts and attitudes that reject prior definitions of art and question art in general... It was used to describe revolutionary forms of art.
As a warm up you will perform a very Dadaist activity using scissors and a bit of chance.
We will write Dadaist prose, being very silly with a Thesaurus and commonly used expressions.
Coffee, Tea and Snacks will be provided.
I will supply much paper, magazines and books and you will decorate a decoupage box /or an art piece along with a frame using collage and applying text.
When you go home, you should have a piece that is absurd yet genius; that is beautiful yet shocking.
This class is available on Request
This is a very simple lesson and very fun at that too. No art skills required, just a steady hand to use the scissors.
Equipment supplied. (Optional: Bring your favourite magazine or print some pictures that get you thinking.)
The teacher can travel within 70km of Hurlstone Park
