With the waxing of summer this workshop will activate our awareness and expression through the exploration of mark-making tools, techniques and storytelling. We will experiment with pencil, ink, chalk, collage, fibers, paint, paper, time and found objects. We will discuss and consider perspective, line, contrast, color and imagery as symbolism and metaphor in our creative work and the stories we share. We will generate creativity and build confidence in visual expression.
*Students are encouraged to bring sketchbooks and send questions and/or specific material requests before class…
