Painting for Peace & Trust – It’s Your Tomorrow @ DEC

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

12 Apr 2021 to 15 Apr 2021 Once Only Event

What do we mean by peace? What do we mean by trust? How do peace and trust work together? Can we do with more peace and trust in the world? Between each other? How can we represent these ideas in art?

These questions and more will be explored in a painting workshop for young people aged 11-15, in recognition of 2021 as the United Nations International Year for Peace and Trust. Leading the workshop is Larrakia artist Jason Lee who has a wealth of experience working with young people in the creation of murals and individual artworks.

For four hours a day, over four days, Jason will lead participants through ideas and symbols relating to peace and trust and how to represent these through painting on canvas. Jason will share his own painting techniques while encouraging participants to find their own style and expression for images that have meaning to their own experiences.

The workshop will culminate with an exhibition of the artworks produced at Darwin Entertainment Centre.
