lecture series "what I did next" by Amit Imtiaz
Organized by: Dept of architecture, DIU
It was a cheerful and colorful day for the department. The students participated a day-long hands on workshop on oil color and water color. The department head inaugurated the session with his welcome speech. In his speech the Head focused on the the necessity of using different artistic techniques in presentation. He also gave much importance on sketch in today's computer age presentation. He welcomed the instructor in the Department and thanked for her time.
The instructor is an architect and freelance artist (participated in group exhibition in Different galleries), shared with students about the techniques that can be used by the students to create different textures in painting. At first a short presentation showed students about basics of art. Then she formed groups among the students and guided them to start oil color painting procedures. This session was very interactive and they presented their works to the instructor.
The second session was again performed in group and this time the instructor showed the introduction to water color mainly the wash techniques. The best outcomes from the students were discussed.
The Lecture series is designed to be an ongoing event in the department. Today’s speaker was Imtiaz Ahmed , a 5th year student of CUET, who shared his struggle and experience as 1st batch student in a newly established department in a university. The Q/A session was elongated and spontaneous and participatory. Students questioned about different topics being a student in architecture department and the speaker answered in a very informal way.
So the sharing of ideas and experience is likely to have an impact in the students thought.
