For Christmas, Atelier’s team has created two unique workshops. Discover the Warhol factory and have an epic journey trought art history with the pixels !
Workshop 1: The Pixel, a journey through art history
The pixel, you eventually heard about it, this small cubic symbol, this small colored square that form your photos or the image on your TV screen. We talk about it all the time now, but it has existed for many centuries! Look at the mosaics from antiquity: pixels!
Let’s start a journey through art history, from antique art, to impressionist and abstract paintings with famous artists such as Mondrian and Klee and contemporary art. Every day the students will discover a new technique and a new artwork related to this mysterious subject.
Painting, drawing, mosaic
Monday: Antiquity – mosaic technique
Tuesday : Monet – relief painting
Wednesday : Honduran and Paul Klee – painting
Thursday : Dali – optical illusion
Friday : Ben and Kelly Goeller – pixel art
Worshop 2: Inside the Factory with Warhol
Andy Warhol’s New York studio, known as the Factory, is at the centre of one of the most legendary and groundbreaking artistic movements of the 20th Century, Pop Art. Between 1962 and 1984, Warhol filled his studio (actually 3 different studios, he moved twice) with creatives from every walk of life: artists, writers, photographers, film-makers, musicians, poets, models, actors… at the time the Factory was the only place to be for any artist working in New York. It was here that Warhol’s iconic prints were devised, and where the movement of Pop Art took place. This workshop will focus on some of the visual artists involved with the Factory, and the ideas and processes that made this movement so special.
Painting, drawing, collage, lino-printing, screen-printing
Tuesday: Warhol’s Flowers (Screenprinting)
Wednesday: Keith Haring (Painting; Colour, movement)
Thursday: Pop Collage: Johnson & Cutrone (collage, drawing, pop-culture imagery)
Friday: Basquiat’s Icons (street-art, branding, post-punk)
