Discovering the World of Visual Arts, inspired by the artworks of Jannis Psychopedis
Starting out with Jannis Psychopedis' POETICAL WORKS, we will explore how poetry, and the figures of poets themselves, morph into images.
In two workshop sessions each month, participants learn about the history, styles and basic techniques of engraving. They experiment on linoleum (a surface commonly used in engraving) and create works inspired by iconic poems that triggered Jannis Psychopedis' creative process.
October is dedicated to Giorgos Seferis and his poems Eleni and Memory II.
We will produce as many impressions as there are participants. Our works will be bound in book form, in as many copies as there are participants, with a cover artwork designed by the workshop leader, their sequence forming a collective narrative created by the group.
The workshop concludes in two sessions.
