8th & 9th August 2020
A series of socially distanced street art workshops will take place during the festival including:
A respected street art professional will guide a group of participants through a collaborative wall work, introducing the attendees to advanced marking, spraying and conceptual techniques.
Beginner patrons will leave with a more comprehensive knowledge of the work required to complete a mural artwork, while more experienced attendees will have the opportunity to improve their technique.
These workshops are suitable for both people starting out with cans and those with experience hoping to tune their technique.
Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 August, 10:00am – 11.30am
BRUSHWORK THROUGH STILL LIFE
In this workshop, classes will take a dive into the world of realism while tuning their brushwork skills. An artist mentor will lead groups through how to take a subject from vision to the page, covering essential art techniques such as scaling and depth with a variety of brushes and techniques.
Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 August, 12:00pm – 1:30pm
PUBLIC ART 101
This workshop will introduce artists and producers to the principles of public art. Hosted by muralist Ash Taylor and Lincoln Savage, the Director of the Brisbane Street Art Festival, you will hear from the artistic perspective and the logistical side of large-scale street art projects. The facilitators will provide an outline of the process for securing suitable locations, acquiring permits, safety, access equipment, paint, materials, research, design process, installation and more. This will be a casual Q&A style workshop with plenty of room for responding to specific questions from attendees.
Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 August, 2:00pm – 3:30pm
Coming along to a workshop? Social distancing is very important and everyone’s responsibility. Please ensure you and your household group maintain a 1.5m distance from the artists, staff and other participants at all times.
