2017 Workshop in Chicago
Chicago, IL | Hirst Printmaking Studio 

NEW!

WORKING LARGE: MARK-MAKING, PERSONAL VISION, AND ART EXPO CHICAGO
September 14-17, 2017 10-4 pm
Hirst Printmaking Studio
Chicago, IL
Cost: $680 plus $45 material fee

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.
