    PUNTO Y RAYA ACADEMY    FIRST FESTIVAL EDITION

    We return to La Casa Encendida in Madrid to devote, for the first time, a whole edition to our educational activities.

    The First International Symposium of Abstract Art in Motion took place from May 7th through 10th 2015, with the participation of over fifteen deluxe international artists. MasterClasses, workshops, clinics for students, and as always, PyRformances to close each day.

    ACTIVITIES PROGRAMME

    MASTERCLASSES

    Our guests introduced us to their creative process, the pioneer techniques and technologies they have developed (which have gained them worldwide recognition), and their current work-in-progress, carrying out live demonstrations or illustrating with a Retrospective session of their work.
    We close with a Q&A session.

    GUEST PYRFORMANCES

    And to conclude an intensive day of Masterclasses, we'll celebrate with a PyRformance (live audiovisual session) by one of our guest artists.

    DISCUSSION PANNELS

    We approach issues related to the production and promotion of abstract audiovisual, and its application in different fields like mapping, installation, live cinema and new media.
