Event description

Explore your creativity and the restorative potential of making art. Join Sarah in this uniquely holistic and inviting workshop in abstract art. “Abstract art is about finding an image and zooming into it, discovering new images and meaning in the process.” Follow Sarah through a colour meditation, visualization exercises and an investigation into colour palettes before diving into a series of guided drawing exercises. Inspect your own artwork and be surprised as you discover how to abstract it to create an entirely new piece of artwork. These intuitive explorations and unexpected discoveries from the first half of the workshop will then go towards your creation of a final ‘collage’ artwork. No experience in painting or drawing is required and all are encouraged to attend. Come get lost in your creative side!

About the Artist:

Sarah Falkenberg-Hassan is a practicing visual artist originally from the UK. Sarah’s practice has taken her around the world where she has been commissioned for murals in 15 countries, including Morocco, China, Honduras and the Galapagos Islands. As an artist Sarah’s work emerges through her interaction with the environment around her in particular the natural world and the calming affects of the setting sun. Despite having a 4 year Art Degree under her belt, Sarah has learned the most from her exploration of mediums and styles through travel and her experiences among different cultures.

A particular connection to the abstract manifests itself in Sarah interpretation of the world. “I look at a some rocks and I might see that one has been moved. I look at where the rock was, the gap it has left, and it inspires me to think about the story of where the rock has gone and how it got there.” Sarah’s practice is all about going with the flow and encouraging others, through creative expression, to learn from and embrace the experiences life puts before us.
