Creation Stories, with Aileen Wright

Starts Monday 25th September 2023 / 8 weeks with half term break

3:00pm – 4:00pm (on Zoom)

Cost:  £45/£25 concessions

In this online class we will explore the vast and fascinating subject of spirituality in art. We will look at representations of indigenous totems and early pagan fertility symbols, the very decorative gods and goddesses of India, the art of Ancient Greece through to the very Eastern inspired early Christian frescos and icons. And to bring us to more recent times we will consider how early abstract painters such as Hilma Af Klint and Piet Mondrian were very much guided in their work by their own spiritual beliefs. Inspired by all of this, we will create exciting, colourful paintings and mixed media artworks as well as experimenting with the sculptural possibilities of air-drying clay.
