Vasl Single Artist Teaching Residency: Drawing Workshop and Vasl ArtShare
Institute: CEAD Jamshoro
Date: Tuesday, 26th January, 2016
As part of a Single Artist Teaching Residency in January- February 2016, Vasl organized a workshop in which resident artist Suleman Aqeel Khilji, worked with students from CEAD Jamshoro. Faculty members included Dr Bhai Khan Shar, Mr. Nusrat Raza Mangi. The idea of the workshop was to teach the students to generate new ideas and activities that can enable them to break out of the routine of their school. The experience with the Jamshoro students with visual arts was to expand on how one can approach different ways of experimenting in drawing.
Suleman introduced the students to different materials and techniques that could be used for effective visual communication and a stronger understanding of materials through the process of drawing. This activity enabled the artists into investigating their role as artists in society, also acquainted them with each other's practices and methodologies.
Vasl ART shares introduces local and international visiting artists to different art institutions across the country. Artists present their work and the wider scope of their practice to students, art practitioners and general public, often engaging in dialogues and discussions.
