Color,Texture & Communication: The Basic Art and Design Workshop

In this workshop, students will be introduced to colour theory, textures and how the relativity of color and texture changes in different objects and spaces. This workshop will encourage every student to introspect into his or her art and design practice. The idea of introspections can be daunting, even

thrilling! Through this workshop we will undertake one such journey, using diverse immersive and reflective methods, we will look at decoding and coding new narratives, through hands-on use of various media such as drawing, painting, textiles, print, sculpture, and whatever every student brings with them.

For students interested in Graphic Design, poetry and storytelling, a major question will be: Do we always need pictures to represent art/story? Can text become art? Today, contemporary art goes much beyond a realistic photograph, an abstract painting or even a symbol. Writing is in fact an equally valid form of art making. These students will be encouraged to explore in various contexts, from a busy street intersection to quiet libraries, a newspaper, and so on.
