The participants were also awarded certificates by Director General PNCA, Jamal Shah and Director Visual Art Department Amna Ismail Pataudi.
During the workshop of portraiture, traditional and contemporary techniques were incorporated into projects. Each student completed the course with a wide range of rendering techniques and gained a historical awareness of artists who have worked in this manner. Honing individual style was encouraged as well as creating self-portraits.
While in the category of expressionism, the participants took expressionism as an artistic style in which the artist seeks to depict not objective reality but rather the subjective emotions and responses that object and events arouse with the person.
The students accomplished this aim through distortion, exaggeration, primitivism, fantasy and through the vivid, jarring, violent, or dynamic application of formal elements. The Artist demonstrated that how they tune from negative to positive emotion as Art Therapy and by educating Psychology of Colours.
