Description

We have an opportunity to have a live, in-person, two-day painting workshop in the studio. Our goal is to HELP UKRAINE, and we invite you to participate! This workshop will be special not only because it is our first live workshop since 2020, but also because it will be a multimedia experience.

We will look at how hidden messages have been used in art from prehistoric times, in the grandiose creations of the Great Masters, in Abstract Expressionism in the US, in the Soviet-style propaganda, and in the anti-war protests today.

In this workshop, you will:

- Brainstorm the meaning of words, translate them into Russian, using Google Translate
- Build complex surfaces with found items on canvas
- Meet a local Ukrainian artist and hear her story of what it means to lose everything
- Connect with a brave young artist in Russia via Skype to see how she fights the war in Ukraine using hidden messages in art as her secret weapon
- Create artworks, using paint and photo transfer to make a statement about the war in Ukraine.

To conclude the workshop, we will gather for a discussion of this eye-opening experience while enjoying famous Ukrainian borsh and a creative group of new, like-minded friends.

100% of the money to the last penny will be forwarded to the Ukrainian fund.
