1 April 2016 Art Tub Outside the Box

A new series of art classes for children aged 9 -12 years will commence at Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery this weekend. Lisa Magri, a well-known local Coffs Harbour artist and teacher will facilitate “Art Tub” on Saturday April 9, the first of three workshops in this series.

 

Lisa Magri will invite students to consider creative concepts, explore selected themes and to 'think outside the box'. The first class will be inspired by works on display in the gallery by Emily Ferretti. The painting “Together” will be explored with practical investigations.

 

Students will learn how artists communicate values by combining colour, line and texture with symbols. They will get to prepare paper with colour wash, draw a still life with musical instruments and collage.

 

“We look at the symbols Ferretti uses and discuss how the potential exists to develop new work using different symbols.  Picasso’s collages that include references to musicians serves as a comparison. Students will observe the relationship between rhythm in music and repetition in design.

 

Students experience the cacophony, when musicians play without rhythm and the meaning of the word tutti, when all instruments play together. We compare the theme of togetherness in Ferretti’s painting and tutti in the orchestra. Their challenge is to create a composition “Tutti” using Ferretti’s design concepts and musical symbols,” said Lisa Magri.

 

Students work will then be displayed in the café alfresco area at the Regional Gallery.
