Sometimes you have a thought or emotion that you would like to explore and share with others, if you are a writer you would take pen to paper and write a book – but as an Artists you are able to pick up your brushes and create pictures to share.
This Workshop with Artist Wyn Vogel – will help you look at how to explore your ideas, and create an allegorical painting that will take people on a journey of their own, you don’t always have to express verbally your story – but let people explore you imagery and enjoy their own emotions!
The Work that is an example for this Workshop is an art piece that Wyn has created for an international exhibition and explores the concepts of ‘The Passage of Time’
