Wednesday 27 July, 2 - 4pm
All staff are invited to attend a free art workshop in the Martin Luther King Multi-faith Centre on Wednesday 27 July. Working with Birmingham based artist Eddy Aigbe, staff will be encouraged to use art to engage their creative spirit and to explore the idea of freedom.
About the artist:
Eddy Aigbe is a Nigerian born Birmingham based painter and art tutor. Having graduated with a BA (Ed) in Fine Art from the Delta State University in Nigeria, he has been passionately and actively producing art to a worldwide audience. He is currently working with acrylics and mixed media in a style that can be best described as "symbolic expression".
He firmly believes that, the process of making art is as important (if not more important) than the artwork itself. He has tutored different age groups from different professions, ethnic backgrounds and, religions to, realise their innate individual potentials through art.
Eddy is currently in the middle of his art residency in a community centre in Birmingham where he is participating in an art project with other members of the community to, produce a series of artworks. His role is also to teach community members, with a view to, encouraging the intellectual development of individuals and the development of integration within a multicultural, multi-ethnic, and multi-religious community.
Reserve your place on the course through the Centre for Staff and Graduate Development booking system.
