“My City”: Two Painting Workshops for Social Inclusion

For two Saturdays, 26 September and 3 October, Inter Alia organised a painting workshop in the frame of the InterArts project.

Visual artist and arts teacher Alkyoni Divari guided the participants in the fundamental principles and the basic concepts of painting.

Through non-formal methods they explored visualisation of words and stories, light and shadow, analogy and form, textures and materials, colours, the colour wheel, warm and cold colours, basic and complementary colours, colour contrast, colour sentiments and synthesis. Participants were called straight from the start to use their sentiment and paint on the subject of “My City” and were guided during their work with tips, insights and questions in a learning-by-doing manner.
