English spoken art course
- beginners and experienced.
The course takes place in our studio room in Gaujas iela 5.
We work mainly with two topics:
1. To increase the knowledge of color and the visual language.
2. To develop the participants expressive and creative ability.
If you feel a desire to express yourself, to work with brushes and colors, with pencils or crayons, to create collages from bits of paper etc.,its a signal that should not be ignored. To nourish the contact with your creative, expressive and inventive part is some of the most valuable you can do for yourself.
Doing artwork is a bridge to growth and development whether you are a beginner or not. The language of art is given to all people regardless of skills and it opens in many ways new doors both to the inside and to the possibilities on the canvas.
Two simple questions frames the proces: What to paint ? and how to paint?
For the beginner as well as for the experienced these questions are urgent. We aim at these questions in various ways: By providing interesting, exciting and thoughtful tasks we challenge the participants creatively, technically, expressively and sensually. And we believe that the proces should make fun as well. The teaching of color, composition, brushwork, form etc. follows naturally during the lessons.
The course specifically aims at you who is studying or doing business in Riga or for other reasons lives in Latvia for longer or shorter time. English speaking latvians are of course also warmly welcome.
All materials are included.
