Art Workshop - 2018


Artist : Thiru. Elayaraja




Workshop Details:

First day would be ideal for a simple workshop for the young participants for 2 to 3 hours.

This should be an interactive workshop where art materials are given to the participants too. (A couple of A4 or A3 cartridge papers and a 12 or 18 colors oil pastel set or Water colour set).

The procedure would be:

  1. The artist will have his demo paper stuck on a board while working so that all the participants can see the art work in progress. If the numbers of participants are more than ten in numbers, then there may be a need for a camera on a tripod and a digital projector and a screen to facilitate visibility.
  2. The artist begins a very simple drawing while he is explaining the comparative sizes of objects, placement of objects and direction of light etc.
  3. The participants complete the drawing while the artist gives a simplified explanation of scale, composition, lighting and perspective without over burdening the youngsters.
  4. The artist applies the first layer of base colors explaining colors (Warm, cool and tertiary colors, Complimentary colors etc.) and then allows the participants to come to this first stage.
  5. Once the participants have completed the first stage of color application, the artist proceeds to the second and final stage of the painting explaining the colour gradation and the need for three grades for 3D look.
  6. Importance of background and simple color perspective knowledge too is given at this stage.

Second day can be a painting demo day for adult members. This could take around 1½ to 2 hours.

The painting can be an Oil colour portrait on canvas of an important member of the sponsor’s association. Or it could be an Oil & Water colour landscape painting on canvas which can be auctioned and the proceed can be offered for a chosen charity fund.

The artist explains the procedure of ‘elements and principals of art’ while painting. Once the painting is completed, the hosts can have an interaction with the artist about past and present art activity of the artist and his associates.s
