The workshop would be a practical based workshop that would encourage participants to experiment with the creation of mixed media artwork and will incorporate skills such as drawing, mark making, collage and acrylic painting techniques, as well as gaining an understanding of composition and the versatile qualities of acrylic paint.
In addition to equipping the participants with practical skills in painting, the participants will be able to work together as a creative collective. There will also be discussion about creative career path choices appropriate for the participants needs.
Payam Beint is a painter currently living in Edinburgh. He recently graduated from an MLitt Masters in Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art.
Payam’s painting practice explores ideas of transition and memory in nature and in relationships. His paintings incorporate techniques and approaches that look at the way that the materiality of painting can act as a metaphor for memory and the passing of time. Payam works primarily with acrylic paints and continues to find ways of expanding and exploring this versatile medium.
