Join Sculpture & Installation student Nabeela Malik for a hands-on workshop exploring the potential of geometry in art and design!

This workshop is designed for students to learn 2D geometry based from Islamic geometric art. Nabeela will begin the workshop with a brief presentation on the artistic and mathematical aspects of geometry and how geometry can be implemented in art and design. Nabeela will demonstrate methods and techniques, starting with a circle as the starting point for creating other shapes with multiple sides accurately, and then help students to copy the designs to learn by example. Participants will then move into overlaying more shapes to expand and create increasingly complex compositions. The goal of this workshop is for each student to have learned and practiced new geometric skills and create a design that they could use in their practice.

Visit www.nmcustomart.com to check out Nabeela's portfolio!

Student-Led workshops are funded by the Ontario Post-Secondary Access and Inclusion Program (OPAIP) administered by the Writing & Learning Centre. These workshops are free, including materials, and are open to all current students.
