The aim of art is a constant, and a continuous job to reveal visually the attitude of our mentality. And the less we disturb the influence of our mentality the more I believe we come close to the truth. - Josef Albers
CSM colour theory workshop
Student plastic spectrum display Kings X campus
This workshop was designed to encourage the students to expand their knowledge and perception of colours and materials, exploring colour through the medium of waste plastics.
It was a great pleasure to have the opportunity to share my experience as a professional artist with young aspiring fashion designers.
While the importance of working sustainably within the creative industry was discussed, the emphasis was on understanding the principles of colour and form within the context of fashion.
I began with a bold word of advise ;
“Art must always be your first consideration as a designer/artist/maker and never an after thought. If you put Art first, you will be listening to the truth within you, as art is at the very frontier of creation and self expression. Whatever your craft/skill, without art nothing of you will exist within that which you intend to create”
I can only hope that what I shared with them all made a positive impact on their development and on the way they’ll work in the future.
Thanks to @chrisdesignkelly for inviting me 🙏🏼
