Since antiquity, humans have drawn and studied plants: first for medical purposes, and later for their aesthetic qualities. In this workshop students improve their drawing skill and develop a better understanding of the great complexity and beauty of nature. The program includes visits to the Botanical Garden of Rome.
Participants should bring their own drawing supplies: either an A4 format sketchbook + pencil or a digital drawing device.
Color Paper Making as an Art Form
Friday, April 23 | 10 AM-1 PM and 2-5 PM
Saturday, April 24 | 10 AM-1 PM and 2-5 PM
Professor Roberto Mannino
In this workshop we explore papermaking as an autonomous discipline in which the process of forming sheets is enriched by artistic interventions onto the wet sheet itself. Participants gain experience with the technology and methods required to produce handmade sheets of paper, concentrating on the use of colored pastes and various other multilayering and laminating techniques. Students are guided through the making of color compositions combining Eastern and Western sheet-forming methods.
All materials are included in the course fee.
