Event Details

Art reveals the evidence of our experiences and values; in observing and creating, the artist suggests themes that are essential to his character, and perpetuates the making and sharing of experience. Through art, subjects become significant to us in a unique ways, aesthetically and conceptually. The artist must be aware of the spacial and formal reality of the subject but also of subtle personal impressions, memories and symbols that may be inspired by the process, and which comprise the content of the work.

Through lecture and demonstration this workshop will not only reinforce an understanding of composition and form, but will also explore methods to break up and strip down the subject, then reconstruct it in new and perhaps surprising ways. Students will participate in discussions regarding the subtleties, variations, lines, textures and colors that enliven our senses and captivate our interest; the way our eyes perceive things and how we make choices regarding their relative importance; the suggestion of the passage of time; the relative states of motion and stillness; how the artist may represent nature in order to reflect on his or her perceptions, experiences and values while also contemplating the important power of symbol and abstraction.
