Mandala Workshop with Tony Adams
By engaging with ideas surrounding current environmental concerns, the Slow Art Collective provided an opportunity for young children to investigate their life style.
Four Seasons with SAC consisted of 4 workshops within an environmentally-focused art project that utilised diverse media.
As part of ArtPlay's Schools Program in 2010, students from 3 Primary Schools - Camp Meadows, Yarra Road and Westall. participated in 3 workshops throughout the year:
1. Mandala Workshops with Tony Adams - using recycled colourful plastics.
2. Veggie art and Compost Workshops with Chaco Kato - using fruit & veggies, and recycled PET bottles.
3. Triangle and Polygon Workshops with Dylan Martorell - using bamboo, carrots, tapioca and toothpicks.
Through the engagement of various 2-D and 3-D processes, this series of hands-on workshops aimed to explore the form and colour of discarded plastic detritus, through the creation of a range of mandalas. Waste as an artistic medium, not only presents a resourceful approach to art-making, but has been inspirational to artists for decades. These workshops aimed to inspire participants to explore creative possibilities of using discarded everyday objects within an art context.
