Firstly I will guide the class in a meditation to empty your mind and become more mindful and connected to your inner artist. I will help you warm up your hand with some simple drawing exercises that will improve your confidence. I will show you my range of art stencils inspired by nature, male and female portraiture, self-care/love and dancers which you can use to create your artwork or I can help you to develop your own ideas, so you can achieve your artistic vision. You will have time to sketch and to practice using the craft knife. Step-by-step I will teach my unique paper cut and textile collage technique and provide you with close guidance along each step of the sketching and cutting process. Finally you will pick a vibrant African print textile and bring your artwork to life! After focusing your mind for just three hours you will create an impactful and memorable work of art and you will be proud of yourself!
I have been an artist for all my life and because I am self-taught, I am confident that I can teach any beginner to create beautiful art! In 2014, I developed my own artistic technique incorporating my sketching, card and African textile collage to create artwork inspired highlighting beautiful and elegant Black women, energetic dancers from the African diaspora and tropical nature scenes. Reviews “I really enjoyed your art class Birungi, you created a friendly, relaxed and encouraging atmosphere and I am so happy with my picture! Thank you” “If you are looking for some “me” time, I thoughly recommend Birungi’s art class. It’s a great way to destress as you’re completely focussed on the piece of art you are creating” “Birungi’s art class was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and I loved using African prints."
