DRAWING AND PAINTING FALL CONCENTRATION
October 1 – November 10, 2023 (six weeks)
Practical Reset: Pushing your Practice
Artists are often taught to think about painting and drawing in ways that reinforce conventional practices and classifications. In this workshop, students will play in the gap between what is familiar and modes of working that are beyond their place of comfort, adjusting to unconventional ways of using tools, materials, and processes. Participants will be encouraged to rethink their studio practice and develop individual visual vocabularies that speak to their inner life as well as their personal history, cultural heritage, and ethnic lineage. This is a conceptually-driven workshop that will not focus on specific skills or techniques. Intermediate level: for people who have an established artistic practice in any medium.
