Art and craft workshop – oil painting on dó paper – FULL
September 24, 2023 @ 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM390,000VND
THIS WORKSHOP IS CURRENTLY FULL. PLEASE RSVP FOR THE WAITING IN CASE SPACES BECOME AVAILABLE.
We are running this brand new workshop with 2 young artists who graduated from the Vietnam University of Fine Arts (who both studied under renowned artist, curator and researcher Nguyễn Thế Sơn).
Đặng Phương Linh (oil painting artist) and Nguyễn Cẩm Nhung (silk painting artist) have developed a workshop painting with oil paints on dó paper.
The painting effect is more like painting with water colour but using oil paint mixed with lavender oil. The process is lovely smooth and very calming. The paint dries very quickly, it can can be layered, it can be translucent, or with a ‘marbling’ feel, or layered more thickly. You can experiment and see which you prefer or combine all effects.
We create our works of art combining different images from Hàng Trống painting. The images will be cut out ready and used as stencils for you to draw round and then create your painting.
Hàng Trống paintings are a genre of Vietnamese woodcut painting that originated from the area of Hàng Trống and Hàng Nón streets, and are very important in Vietnamese folk culture.
