WORKING LARGE: MARK-MAKING, PERSONAL VISION, AND ART EXPO CHICAGO
September 14-17, 2017 10-4 pm
Hirst Printmaking Studio
Cost: $680 plus $45 material fee REGISTER HERE
Paula Roland guides the group through fun and informative exercises and collaborations that help us create outside of our habitual ways of working. We begin with inner-focused brush and ink works inspired by Zen philosophy. We then transition to over-size tools such as mops, brooms, and large brushes working with ink on paper that covers the entire studio floor. Our initial goal is emotive mark-making that frees us to work large and expands our mark-making vocabulary. We learn to take chances and respond to our surroundings. These ink works are the basis for the following days’ activities.
Day two includes a group excursion to Art Chicago, the iconic art fair. We use a phone camera or sketchbook to record images and ideas that inspire us and may be incorporated in our workshop pieces through abstraction.
Back in the studio for days 3-4, we discuss our observations and review the fundamentals of art and composition. Using selections from our ink paintings as a base, we add color, value, and line with mixed media drawing, collage, encaustic painting, or encaustic printing on the Roland HOTbox™. Our individual and group discussions highlight strengths and personal processes with and eye toward the work’s content and enhancing one’s studio practice. Artist-Students will leave with an armload of finished pieces, new observations and techniques, and much inspiration! This class is suitable for all levels with basic understanding of color and composition.
