2-4 Day Private Workshop
(All year round)
Larnaca, Cyprus (inside the artist's studio)

Dates upon request

Hours: 10am - 1pm / 2pm - 6pm

Tuition: 2 days €420

              3 days €550

              4 days €650

The workshop’s general purpose will be the manufacturing of portraits with different elements of varied faces through the mixture of materials (acrylics, oils and spray). The preparation will begin by precisely selecting specific characteristics from portrait photographs based on criteria that will be explored at the workshop. That is to say, the students will not be using photos as they are but rather, a collage of different facial features.

It is vital that the students understand the significance that each individual feature has and the importance of its role in the composure of a face. Thus, we will explore each facial element separately at the workshop. The final goal of this workshop will be the creation of portraits that depicts an aesthetic. So, the elements will be employed to portray the portraits’ final meaning and purpose, which should harmoniously link with the aura the student wants to create.

Another aim of this workshop is to learn to mix materials that were not made for mixing; for instance spray and paint. This will be achieved by alternating the materials’ initial identity and purpose for which they were originally made. Oil and acrylic paint, are conceived as more traditional mediums. Spray, on the other hand is a typically ‘new’ material employed usually in street art. This distinction of old and new can be merged. At the workshop, the materials will be essentially ‘married’ in order to create a harmonious, contemporary feel to each student’s portrait. This is what will be attempted to be realized at the workshop.

As all artists are aware, technique is key in creating an effectual piece. In the workshop, students will be taught how technique affects and contributes both to the meaning and purpose of their work. Technique and theme are connected, and together , reveal the underlying meaning of a portrait.

Finally, throughout the workshop the aim is for students to understand that progress is just as important as a piece’s final result and/or nature.
