Fee: €50 Book

Submerge into an artistic journey about colour, discovering the different types of contrast and achieving harmony with artist Anca Danila, in this two-part workshop for adults.

In this painting workshop, over two Saturdays, we will explore together the role of colours, how we perceive colour, creating contrast and achieving harmony. By practicing painting, we engage in a journey of perceiving the subtle nuances of colour and life around us. Josef Albers insisted that “colour, as the most relative medium in art, has innumerable faces or appearances. To study them in their respective interactions, in their interdependence, will enrich our ‘seeing,’ our world—and ourselves.”

No experience necessary. All materials provided.

Anca Danila is a visual artist born in Romania and based in Dublin where she lives and has worked for more than a decade. She has a Bachelor’s Degree and a Master Degree in Fine Arts from the University of Art and Design Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Her works have been displayed in numerous exhibitions in institutions and galleries around the world. Passionate about psychology, sociology and contemporary anthropology, Anca talks about Identity in a world of Globalisation. Her artistic concerns, in the last ten years, are a reflection on her own process of migration, emphasizing the “patterns” common to all, regardless of the country of origin. In addition to her artistic activity, Anca has also been teaching art for over 10 years, sharing her artistic knowledge with both children and adults.
