Description

LARGE-SCALE GESTURE DRAWING WITH INK
Alice Gould

5 sessions >>Tuesdays, February 20–March 20
7:30–10:30pm, Studio 13, $245
No prerequisite.

Use big brushes, squirt bottles, splashes, drips, calligraphy and layers of ink washes on large-format paper in this free-play class. This is a non-objective, abstraction-based class, and can include the use of personal reference materials such as photographs. Explore ink properties and develop an abstract awareness and language of your own. We will use black india ink, working from subtle washes to pure black, and open it up to color if desired. Instructor will demonstrate various approaches and assist students with their visions; class-time will be used to create multiple large-scale works on paper.

Alice Gould received a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, both in the field of Painting. She moved to San Francisco after attending RISD and returned again after grad school, participating in shows at Adobe Books and other local venues as a member of the vital community of artists in the Mission District. Adventure and wilderness exploration have guided her from city to country to wilderness, and back again. Nature informs her work: large oil canvases and spirited gouache works-on-paper are homages to life forces, weather, plant dynamism, and paint itself. She now lives in Oakland.

What materials (if any) will I need to bring to class?
Each course requires specific materials that we ask you bring to your first class session so you can get started making right away. Materials lists are available approximately two weeks prior to the course start date. Visit the SFAI website here, click on your course title, and then click on the blue "Materials List" link underneath the course dates. If you have any questions regarding materials, please contact Public Education Staff.

What are my transport/parking options getting to San Francisco Art Institute?
All classes meet at 800 Chestnut Street (unless otherwise noted), between Jones and Leavenworth. You can find directions to campus on the SFAI website.

SFAI is located in a residential neighborhood, and free two-hour parking is available on all of the streets immediately surrounding the school. The two-hour restriction cuts off at 9pm, so evening Public Education students do not need to move their car, unless you arrive prior to 7pm.

SFAI is easily accessible via public transportation, with Muni bus lines #30 Stockton, and #47 Van Ness located within a few blocks of campus.

I have a question that isn't on this list. Who can I contact?
SFAI Public Education Staff are always happy to answer any questions you may have about the Public Education program, or our courses. We are in the office Monday–Friday from 9am to 5pm. Call us at: 415.749.4554 or e-mail: publiceducation@sfai.edu
