Two day weekend workshop
Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 August 2021

Click here to book.

In this 2-day painting workshop, you will learn the basic creative processes of abstract, geometric painting, as a way of looking at and recording both objects and emotions. The workshop will be a hands-on and experimental approach, exploring different techniques, types of paint and colour, compositions, brush application and more, the end result being to create a painting on canvas. The workshop will also provide a brief history of abstract geometric art and looks into what led to the early beginnings of abstract geometry as a way of expression. At the end of the workshop, we will have a discussion among the group about the works created. All materials will be provided, and you will be able to take your paintings home at the end of the workshop.

Tutor Biography: 

Aaron Ossia is a multi-disciplinary visual artist, predominantly working with painting, installations and performance art. He graduated from Chelsea College of Arts London in 2015. His fascination lies in the visualisation of the precision, perfection and strength that lines, geometry and colour-as-material can produce. He works across multiple media to reinterpret (public) spaces with immersive, site specific installations and performances, and his paintings serve a purpose in his site-specific work.

Aaron has exhibited internationally including in the USA, Germany, Sweden and the UK, as well as being a returning guest lecturer and workshop tutor in multiple art schools across the UK and Germany.
