Drawing and Painting – May Special Session
May 1-6, 2022

Mixed-Media Memories/Personal Narratives

This concept-based workshop will explore the use of mixed-media drawing and painting to tell personal stories and explore individual narratives. We’ll emphasize the development and exploration of personal lexicons. We’ll work with dry and wet drawing materials plus acrylic paint. Students can paint on canvas, create drawings on paper, or try other formats. Bring photographs and other source materials to work with; these will be the point of departure for our work. All levels.

Professor of art and design at University of Delaware; other teaching: Haverford College (PA), University of Pennsylvania; residencies: Banff Centre (Alberta), Des Moines Art Center (IA), Vermont Studio Center, Duntog Foundation (Philippines); exhibitions: Cultural Center of the Philippines, Bronx Museum of the Arts (NYC), International Center of Photography (NYC), Delaware Art Museum, West Gallery (Philippines).
