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.
