Bleach and its preparation and Inspiration in Art ~ with TheArthur Wright
a one afternoon workshop open to all Art Camp students
POINTIFLET! What the heck?
This is a one afternoon workshop open to all campers. It is not a choice for a morning class.
To make it easy to understand it is nothing more than pointillism, plain and simple. I use bleach in POINTIFLET, and a skewer, emery boards to keep the point of the skewer as pointy as I like, which can range from a fine sharp point to using the other end of the skewer which is quite blunt. Any and everything in between.
The first day will be used to find out what we are in for by using bleach as the main, or only, medium, and, in itself, is kind of mundane but I think the results can be spectacular. We will learn how to do this, at least in the way I intend to present it, with room for personal creativity and hopefully enjoying the process. I use pointillism, or POINTIFLET, if you will, to create my art but the choice is personal and brushes, sponges, spray pumps, no matter, I have used many of them and each can do something the others cannot.
I do this on paper rather than cloth because the minute amounts of bleach used is not often meant to disperse and I need precision.
I expect many questions and hope to have many answers.
All materials will be provided by the instructor.
These include paper, fabric for anyone who want to try the two differing items, perhaps an apron with rubber gloves for those who feel the need for them, but bleach is water soluble and eaily washed off from skin with soap and water, we have all seen how bleach treats cloth! So be careful, and if not careful, be good! There will be a few other itinerant items as well. A nominal material fee will be determined by the instructor.
