Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

World Two: Online Course

In this magical world artists created playful alter-ego of themselves, as well as designed and made the other world in which this being lives. Students also learnt to customise clothes and use acrylic paints to create the studio set of theirr alter-ego’s ‘world’.

In this world artists played with the medium of Zoom - the ‘digital window’ through which theirr painted worlds would be framed. They also discovered about inspiring artists, such as Rebecca Horn, Nick Cave, Monster Chetwynd and Cinzia Ruggeri. And practised drawing and painting on fabrics and for the character’s backdrop.

Each artist created a personalised wearable artwork and built an installation designed for this magical world.

This was online arts course, taking place over Zoom.

Art Forms: Fashion, painting, photography, performance art, scenic design.
