Over recent years street art has become recognised as an exciting art form which allows great freedom and creativity, and the production of striking imagery that is accessible to a wide audience. There are a number of skills which are essential for the production of high quality images, and this course will provide an excellent grounding in these, as well as the opportunity to create a large scale piece of work as part of a group.
Day 1: Introduction – discussing the work of prominent artists in the field, and the different styles utilised in Street Art. Stencils – creating stickers and stencils. Planning – drawing and working as a group, discussing the use of shapes and colour. We will cover a large area with paper and create a piece from scratch
Day 2: Painting – the second day the class will work on the mural
Marian Noone, aka ‘Friz’ is an emerging belfast-based artist who works in both traditional and digital mediums. She is part of the SPOOM Collective, a group of artists who frequently collaborate on large scale murals. Her works have been included in group exhibitions in Belfast, Sligo and Dublin and she was a member of the 2010 Dublin team which competed in the Secret Wars Euro League, the world’s premier live art battle involving 17 cities from across Europe. Friz’s work largely revolves around the female form, creating sometimes sassy, sometimes sensuous characters. Many of her pieces can be seen around Belfast and we are delighted to draw on her expertise for this course.
This course runs from 10am – 5pm on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th April
