Me & My Creativity/Yo Y Mi Creatividad
March - June, 2013
Organized and conducted by Blanka Amezkua
Art workshops were conducted in Six D.O.G.S. art space on Tuesdays and in Gavrielides bookstore / art bar on Wednesdays; both locations in the center of Athens.
The worskshops took place every Tuesday and Wednesday from 11 am. - 1 pm. (English and Spanish sessions).
Guided by their imagination through my assistance and a couple of suggestions, the participants allowed themselves to be steered by their own creativity through the use of traditional media, such as pipe cleaners, felt, paper, pencil, synthetic flowers, straws, and paint. These workshops were not intended as craft sessions. They didn't aim to teach the participants how to make only one thing. Rather, they were an invitation to discover the many creative forms humble materials can be molded to and nurtured by the power of their own imagination.
The workshops concluded with an art show at Six D.O.G.S. on Sunday June 2, 2013.
