Skate Graphics Workshop with Chris Dyer
This fun 3-day workshop with Chris Dyer will teach you a bit about the short history of skateboard art (a slideshow presentation to get you all stoked n inspired) and then will guide you on his personal process of painting. His own art career started by recycling the old broken skate decks he was done riding and giving them new long-lasting life as wooden artworks. So he encourages any student to bring either an old skateboard, or if not that, any found object that could have been considered as garbage, so we can resurrect it!! If you want to paint a skateboard, but cant find any, he will help you with that.
Chris will go step by step through the process of sketching the ideas, priming, drawing on the board, achieving quality graphic line work, painting, layering effects, color theory, polishing and varnishing. Ideally we all end up with masterpieces at the end of the sessions, but either way you will learn much about how it’s done and have a blast jamming with crazy Chris!!
Chris Dyer is a Peruvian artist residing in Montreal, Canada for the latest half of his life.
