This event supports the BSBSA project’s mission to humanise public spaces in Bulgaria, Romania, and Serbia through art. The stencil workshop by Ortaku promises to be an engaging, interactive experience, allowing participants to learn how to contribute to the fabric of their city in an artistic and meaningful way. Attendees can expect to immerse themselves in an atmosphere brimming with inspiration, creativity, and a shared passion for redefining public spaces.
The workshop takes place in the urban living-room and art gallery Lente, it lasts 4 hours and it can accommodate 10-15 participants, aiming to foster individual expressions, facilitate dialogue and the production of a stencil sprayed on A2 size paper. Ortaku will tell you about street art and graffiti in general, with a focus on stencils. You learn to cut and to experiment with over-layered shapes and colours. All the materials needed are included (markers, A2 and A3 papers, spray cans, cutter, gloves and mask).
