Class Description: Workshop goals will be to find the “voice” and identity of the materials at hand; how they coalesce into a coherent visual presence, reflecting the effort of the artist as observer and participant. This workshop utilizes methods which challenge habitual practice, encouraging exploration, experimentation, and collaboration with facilitators as well as workshop participants.
Each participant is encouraged to strengthen areas of hesitancy, observe positions of resistance and enter new ground in painting, collage and alternative print techniques in six-hour sessions facilitated in carefully structured improvisations employing exercises developed individually and collectively by the instructors.
Both instructors will work hands-on with each individual, encourage collaboration and will demonstrate techniques including transfer print making, chemical transfers, and image juxtaposition among other practice-stimulating exercises.
Each participant will leave with a minimum of two completed works and several works-in-progress.
