Coming to Joondalup Festival 2022 is an exciting new community art
hART - My Neighbourhood
We are proud to present these workshops in collaboration with City of Joondalup.

Schools and Community Groups within the City of Joondalup have been offered the opportunity to partake in a community art installation that will be on display in the picturesque, Hillarys Boat Harbour. The installation will be displayed over the three-week Joondalup Festival period, encouraging families to visit the space in a relaxed environment at their own leisure.

The workshops will help you to see and appreciate the rich variety of shapes, colours, textures, and patterns in your environment. The workshop will also focus on the light and how appearances change with weather conditions and time of day. The workshops will contribute to the international Colour Literacy Project.

All images produced are to be included in hART – My Neighbourhood, an installation by public artist Sean Adamas for the Joondalup Festival 2022.

Morning workshop - 10am - noon
Walking, Looking, Seeing

After a brief introduction, participants will take a short walk around the neighbourhood taking photographs with tablets, digital cameras, or smart phones. Participants will then send their four best images to be posted on the workshop padlet (electronic pin-up board) for display and discussion. Participants will be given access to the padlet and will be shown how to post their images. Those who use a tablet for taking photos will also be shown how to use an app to combine their images in a collage. This activity is inspired by the ideas of Juliet Albany.

Some materials will be provided, but you should bring your own tablet or smart phone if you have one. For those who do not have a device, there will be one available to share. It is recommended that participants in this session wear comfortable walking shoes and sun protection.

Book for morning workshop session

Afternoon workshop - 1pm - 3pm
Capturing the Colour Character of a Scene

Participants will work with a standard format of five colours in nesting squares and diamonds to capture the colour character of a photograph. Those who participated in the morning workshop can use one of their own photographs; those who are only participating in the afternoon workshop will be able to work from one of the photographs that will be supplied. Stencils and colour samples, scissors and glue sticks will also be supplied as well as sheets of card for sticking down the designs.

Book for afternoon workshop session

Each workshop will be self-contained and it will be possible to attend either or both. Each workshop will also include some ‘eye-opener’ activities which will reveal some surprising aspects of ways in which colours interact. The workshops will be led by Paul Green-Armytage and Sean Adamas.

The workshops are free, however spaces are limited and registration is essential.
