In this 2 day ink drawing workshop students will spend the first day closely examining and drawing plant matter such as seaweed, tree roots, seed pods. The second day students will extract biomorphic shapes from the first day's drawings--cutting drawings apart, tracing fragments, exaggerating and distorting elements. Final projects will be composed from pieces and parts of the first day's drawings that have been altered, revised and abstracted into large black and white compositions. Students will look at projections of work of artists such as mid 20th century organic abstractionists Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Jean Arp. Contemporary 21st century artists whose work references nature in other ways include Ellen Gallagher, Julie Mehretu, Lee Bonticou and Brice Marden. Prequisite: None
