4 sessions >> Thursdays, February 23-March 16
6:30–9:30 pm | Studio 13 | $185
If your creative practice is hampered by anxiety, this class is for you! Whether this is your first visual arts class or you’ve been working at it for years, a series of exercises will provide a structure that will make it safer to experiment more freely. Class time will be devoted to completing "drawing" prompts in a variety of media, some of which will happen on paper. Students will walk away with a series of exercises that can be used as the catalyst for longer, more personal projects, or to incorporate in your own studio practice as inspirational play.
Beth Krebs lives and works in Oakland. Her work celebrates the earnest, heroic, and usually botched human efforts at transcendence. She explores this subject, with humor and empathy, by transforming physical spaces and by making sculptural objects and drawings. She has exhibited her installations in galleries and alternative spaces in New York, San Francisco and abroad, including the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), Mixed Greens, Smack Mellon, the Bronx Museum of Art, Station Independent Projects, the Cue Foundation, Real Artways, Minnesota Street Projects, and Kala. She was awarded a grant from the Buchegger Foundation to fund an installation in Augsburg, Germany in 2012. She has been an artist in residence at the MacDowell Colony, the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, the Jentel Colony, Sculpture Space, and the Bemis Center. She was a recipient of a Joan Mitchell Foundation MFA Grant upon graduation from Rutgers University in 2004. www.bethkrebs.com
