Do you carry a place, real or imagined, inside yourself? Want to make artwork about it, but not sure how to translate those ideas, memories, or sensations into images? Then this workshop is for you! Students will be guided through a series of drawings and paintings in which they explore rhythm, mark, shape, texture, and color, in the service of capturing the inner spirit of a particular landscape or place. We will address the concept of scale and discuss strategies for developing effective compositions. Experimentation with a variety of materials such as charcoal, ink, collage, and paint will be encouraged as we work towards creating images that capture the essence of a place that is significant to you. This workshop will give you tools to discover and develop your personal artistic voice.
