BEGINNING DRAWING

tree

 

Artists are "See-ers". They literally see the world around them in a different way than the rest of us. Yet, all of us have the ability to be "see-ers".

To learn how to draw, we must first learn to "look" without preconceptions. We will practice this artist's way of looking and drawing from observation, and experiment with a number of drawing techniques that have been used by artists over the centuries.

This class is geared towards beginners... but is suitable for those who wish to refresh their drawing skills, or just need a class or assignment to get them going.

Mondays for 12 weeks, 12 - 2 PM Jaunary 8 - March 26, 2018

All materials provided, Fee: 360$

IMAGE AND ARCHETYPE

light in the darkness

Join me for a weekend intensive working in charcoal with the primordial archetypes of light and darkness, inspired by the Collot methods of "Light, Color and Darkness".

In this context we refer to the activity of light and darkness not as good and evil, but in their archetypal activity.

Light: consciousness, thinking, and the nerve-sense system.

Darkness: Unconscious activity, warmth, the will and the metabolic system.

Color: the middle, rhythmical breathing of our feelings and soul.

Through the light of the thinking and nerve-sense process we are able to become more conscious, awake and focused, and able to respond in the moment. Through the warmth and darkness of the will and metabolic system, we hold, cherish and digest all that life brings to us.

Fee: $90, All Materials included.

Friday 7-9 PM and Sat. 1-4 PM,

Feb. 9 - 10, 2018

Class is held at my studio space at the Casket Arts Carriage House, #302, (located behind the main building beside the grain elevators)
