Weekly Art Webinars

Educate yourself in Art!  Participate in a weekly online workshop to discover and develop your own ways of artistic expression and to become an inspired artist!

The IRIS ART CENTRE organises weekly online workshops for adults who wish to discover and develop their artistic expression.

These webinars are focused, methodical sessions that consist of a theoretical part: a lecture with PowerPoint presentation, and a practical part where you work by yourself at home. The first half hour is spent showing slides of the work of established artists that have been chosen to inspire you for the specific lesson, along with an analysis of themes and techniques present in the work of these artists. Next, you will work on your own, inspired by the the slides and the theme of the webinar, to discover your own way of expression. In these weekly webinars there is time for questions, and optional "show and tell" at the end to share your process. 

For more information about the workshops, or in order to apply please send an email to irisartcentre@gmail.com.

How do artists work out big ideas?

A workshop that will introduce you to the work of well known artists of the 20th and 21st century, by looking at common big ideas they worked on. Every session will tackle a new big idea, and you will research your own imagery, medium and presentation related to it. A very useful workshop if you want to explore new artistic paths in your creative expression.

It is a 10 sessions workshop (from Oct. 5 to Dec. 7th) where you will learn a lot about the history of art by getting to know the work of different artists working in a great array of media.

 

The focus will be on learning the steps of how to transform an idea into a work of art. We will look at 10 "Big Ideas" in art. In every session we will look at three different artists and see how they worked this big idea out for themselves. Next, you have about 30 minutes to work on how you would approach this big idea, and to find your own clues and sensitivities that inspire you. Every session we will tackle a new big idea, and you will research your own imagery, medium and presentation related to it.

 

A very useful workshop if you want to explore new artistic paths in your creative expression. This workshop will also help you to understand the theoretical basis of conceptual and postmodern art as we will dive into the narratives and artistic rationale of the artists.

 

Together we will look at work from a great diversity of artists working on the big ideas of: Fantasy, Humor, Play, Relationships, Identity, Space, Environment, Community, Time, Life Cycles.

Where do great women artists find inspiration?

A mixed media workshop to develop personal artistic voice featuring the work of ten women artists. We will focus on how these great women artists found inspiration and how they transformed it into a personal work of art.

 

We will look at slides of their work and analyze the process of the development of their personal visual language and see how their beliefs, life philosophy and self-identity are interwoven with their art. It will inspire you to grow in your own artistic work. You will discover how working with those feelings, ideas and sensations that are most meaningful to you are crucial in developing your personal artistic voice.

 

In this ten-sessions workshop you will learn a lot about contemporary art by getting to know the work of different artists working in a great array of media. The focus will be on learning the steps of how to transform a personal idea into a work of art.

 

Each week we will start with a 30 minute presentation and slide show centering on the work of a well known artist in order to trace ideas and inspiration that led the artist to produce her work. Next, you will find your own clues, sensitivities and ways in approaching a personal issue of your choice and start to work it out in collage or mixed media. A very useful workshop if you want to explore new artistic paths in your creative expression. This workshop will also help you to understand the theoretical basis of conceptual and postmodern art as we will dive into the narratives and artistic rationale of the artists.
