Keep an Eye Masterclass: Damien Poulain

Sadly, the masterclass with Damien got cancelled because of new COVID restrictions in the Netherlands. Luckily, Damien has come up with a great online workshop called TILING UP! 

Look Up, Look Down, Look Everywhere during this workshop where we will collectively (and separately) will be working on two artworks. Look at what you see everyday but do not see anymore (or have not seen yet) and incorporate your favourite shapes in your artwork.
