Class Description

Knox Martin has said, “In order to make a work of art, you must know what art is! Essentially true art is revelation—not the illustration of revelation. One must teach without ego. You must be able to point to it and do it at will. That is called the thing! We teach doing the thing. If you as a student truly reach without reservation, you will know the thing. When this is clear, true art is perceived. The false will fade away. What remains is that which is fresh, unique, Eternal dada!”

This class has a model available for students who prefer to work from the model. Many students also work from their own material.
