We will learn about lines and values, texture and rhythm, and how these techniques affect the artwork.

In every session, there will be additional information and inspiration from art history references and learning how to look at and assess the finished work.

About the artist: Christina Darras is a multidisciplinary artist and designer. Her practice revolves around identity, non-identity, value and failure, and a deceiving cuteness. She employs colour as a non-verbal language to communicate emotions. Darras’s art practice expands over many mediums, including painting, drawing, printmaking, embroidery, knitting and installations. Her primarily tactile and lengthy processes convey a meditative and solitary practice. Christina has studied painting at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and printmaking at Central St Martins in London and recently completed a Master of Contemporary Art at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2021 and graduated with a first-class honours degree. She is also a certified Yoga teacher. She lives and works in Mentone with her partner Nikos and their dog Mousou.
