Making Art for the Joy of Making Art with Boubakary Konseimbo / Starts June 2nd, 2012 (2 days)
In this workshop we will be creating art from our immediate environment. Both our emotional environment and physical environment. We will gather materials from the surrounding land and earth going outside to connect and then bringing that which inspires us back into the studio. We will use what we have and give it life working spontaneously, using our feelings more than our intellect.
Boubakary Konseimbo is a self taught artist from the city of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, West Africa. He was involved in a well known art center in this city of 4 million people, called the Loukare Art Center, where he also showed his work and became a full time artist in residence in 2001. Bouba’s art is inspired by the imaginary; feelings, emotions, and the spiritual. He uses any materials that are available when he is inspired. He works spontaneously to express his emotions and invokes his guts more than his intellect. Bouba has several years teaching experience and has shown his work in Paris, NY, AZ and Santa Fe NM.
This workshop will be held at the Tarnoff Art Center located in Rowe New Mexico. Students will have full access to the studio facility while attending the workshop. Suggestions can be made for reasonable lodging; Santa Fe has plenty of rooms available although the city is about 20 minutes away. The daily schedule will consist of instruction from 10:00-12:00, lunch from 12:00-1o 1:00 and more art making 1:00-3:00. You may stay as long as you like after class to work on your art. All materials included.
