Playing with Paper and Lines Part 1: Hirameki

Learn the art form ‘Hirameki’ alongside some short well-being awareness activities in our 1-hour workshop that will prove anyone can be an artist! The art form ‘Hirameki’ involves placing blobs of wet media onto a page to create shapes and forms that you transform into another image by using a pen and your own imagination – we embrace weirdness, fun and a bit of tongue-in-cheek!

We hope this workshop will free you from conventional art expectations, bring a smile to your face and let you have a bit of fun to break up the everyday lockdown routine! You will need some form of wet media, paper and a paint brush to take part in this workshop, and we invite everyone to have their camera turned on, as we want to create a feeling of being in a classroom all together.

Students will need:
A form of wet media, (e.g. watercolor, acrylic, ink, tea, coffee…)
A pen
