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

Advance Master Class: Additive, Reductive Monotype and Relief Printing Using a simple registration system developed by John Willis for his own work, you will learn how to build up subtle, dense color through multiple monotype printings. We will investigate a variety of traditional monotype processes, including reductive and additive applications, to create their images. You will also explore advanced techniques, such as, solvent application on color flats to create reticulation patterns, rainbow rolls, use of dry media, and other unconventional ways to manipulate color to build up rich, overlapping surfaces. The course will include instruction on combining monotype and relief printing, a technique, which allows students to produce editions or use the key relief block image as a jumping off point for one-of-a-kind monoprints.

Have you ever wanted to learn to draw and paint from the figure without having to draw like Leonardo? Then this rigorous, but fun class is for you. Learn how to follow shapes, create space, and most of all compose your page, without painstaking proportions and measurements. We will use the model to look hard, but we won't be working towards 19th century realism. You will be composing and deconstructing on the fly, at a fast pace, alternating with very slow and deliberate observation. You can't be attached to the outcome, or even have any idea of what your work will look like when it is done. In fact your work will be ?undone? if it gets predictable. This will be action packed 'process' with no possibility of staying in your rut if you have one. You will be provided with a large canvas, paper, and drawing and painting materials. Absolute beginners are perfect for this class as well as advanced artists. This workshop is located offsite at Miller School of Art in Georgetown ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED. Prerequisite: None
