As a Nes resident, artists have the opportunity to design and teach creative workshops at the local school. Below you can see some of the workshops that Nes artists have presented.
Sarah Cowan (Canada) visual artist who specialises in paper sculpture presented a paper cutting workshop.
Ana Armengod (Mexico) presented the Gifted Egg Project to FNV students for a special weekend workshop. Ana explains that The Gifted Egg Project ” consists of me making really detailed and time consuming pointillism drawings on eggshells and I give them as a gift, then I ask the person to break them, in front of me and I document their reactions, they never want to break the eggs, they are overcome with emotions, anxiety of breaking something I worked so hard on, and then wanting to keep it. It’s an exercise in letting go, and making things about experience and not possessions”.
Penny Bovell renowned artist/painter from Western Australia presented the workshop Inventing and Translating Colour to FNV students and discussed the question how can colour theory help an artist or designer?
