Meet artist Ida Mitrani for a drawing workshop based around concepts and theories of plant culture in the current environmental crisis. Ida will get you thinking about the in(ter)dependence between humans, plants and the overconsumption of synthetic materials. Through a series of quick, practical demonstrations on accurate plant representation and colour chart preparation, you will create your own hybrid plant using recycled materials combined with collage and mixed media.
Materials you will need:
Pencils (HB or 2B)
Paints (watercolour or acrylics)
Brushes (mixed sizes)
Cartridge paper or watercolour paper (A4 or A3)
Tracing paper (A4)
Magazines, photos, recycled materials i.e. plastic bottles, milk cart, fruit/vegetable net etc..
Ceramic plate or palette, jar, kitchen towel paper or rag
An image to work from will be provided in an email to registered participants 1–2 days in advance.
