Uncooked Culture follows its own art class recipe to inspire individuals who are passionate about art, to be able to take on and progress their own creative direction, rather than putting students in sealed takeaway boxes of frustration. Supporting and valuing untrained artists as well as trained,  the Uncooked ethos has always been based upon individuality and breaking away from the traditional uniform method of learning and producing art.

As part of Uncooked Culture’s new rebel art school, TRANSITION COLLECTIVE artist TERENCE DYNES will be leading Thursday afternoon classes: ‘Merging The 7 Visual Elements through mixed media’ exploring visual components through experiments in mixed media.

“Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.”These words from Pablo Picasso express the inspiration behind this class. In learning the visual elements of art-making they allow us to explore with confidence the power of the imagination, enabling us to interpret the world in new and inspiring ways. – Terence Dynes

Weeks 1 & 2: Introduction to the 7 elements of visual art; line, shape, form, value, space, colour and texture. Interpreting the object with those elements.

Week 3: Portraiture, using selected elements to produce self-portraits, portraits of class mates, portraits in the style of an artist of your choosing.

Week 4: Abstract Art, exploring materials/collage using the imagination.

Week 5: Learn the rules/break the rules. Use everything you’ve learned to make the work you want.
