Art and ​Collage Workshops

​Since 2006 I have been teaching the following Art Workshops in Athens at several venues including the Athinais Cultural Centre, Theocharakis Foundation for Fine Art & Music, and IRIS ART CENTRE.

* The History of Collage

* Contemporary Collage Artists

* Collage and Mixed Media

* Becoming an Artist: Art as a Process

* Collage and Integrated Arts

* From Inspiration to Finished Artwork

* Paper Art

* Transformative Art

* World Art

* Women Artists: Life and Work

* Finding a personal focus

* Big ideas in Art

​Each course consists of 12 lessons of 2 ½ hours. The first half  hour is spent on showing slides of the work of established artists

that have been chosen to inspire the student for the specific lesson, along with analysis of themes and techniques present in the work of these artists. Next, the students work independently on their own, inspired to discover their own ways of expression as artists. In these two hours, I support each student individually with any queries or questions. Groups are maximum 15 students, each course can be given separately or in a combination as a project based art education, over a time span of 2 or more weeks, including an art exhibition of the work of students. If you would like to arrange a set of art classes or workshops in Athens or more details on the set collage and art courses, please contact me.

From Art to Empowerment: How Women Can Develop Artistic Voice

 

February 6, 2020

Annette Luycx

 

My hands-on workbook for self-discovery through artistic expression just came out! It is available on Amazon, Archway and Barnes & Noble as a print copy and as an e-book.

“From Art to Empowerment: How Women Can Develop Artistic Voice” By Annette Luycx  ISBN: 978-1-4808-8496-0 (softcover); 978-1-4808-8497-7 (eBook)  Available at the Archway Publishing Online Bookstore, Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

https://www.amazon.com/Art-Empowerment-Women-Develop-Artistic/dp/1480884960/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=luycx&qid=1582377642&sr=8-1

 

 

It describes the method I have developed over 20 years of working with women in art education. It helps women to look inward, find inspiration in personal experiences and generate their own themes, images and symbols, ultimately discovering what is meaningful to them and learning to express that visually. In the book I lead women through a step-by-step process using self-reflective thinking, visualizing, journaling, and other creative practices. It starts with explaining how to find a personal story that you can use for your art-making and it ends with advice to organize your final exhibition, in order to share your artwork with friends and family.

 

The book has twenty-four practical fun exercises and twelve art assignments that guide you to develop your artistic voice: that unique way of art-making that is so characteristic of who you are, your own style! This book will expand your artistic ability and self-awareness as you work in collage on an issue of personal interest.
