Studio Arts: Painting & Drawing in the manner of The NY Studio School With Maureen O’Brien Sept 17-21, 2012, Mon-Fri, 5 Days
This intensive workshop will follow the form and spirit of The New Studio School, based on the teachings of Hans Hoffman. This class will be using a live model in the afternoons. We will focus on the nature of space, picture plane, tension, and movement. Students will learn to “see” the model and space as an interplay of equals. “Form is emptiness. Emptiness is form.” We will release ourselves from static labels and enter into a vibrant world of living movement. Drawing intensely for four days evolves the ability to see and create beyond our cherished perceptions. Old limitations dissolve, new vision arises. Drawing classes can include working with color: paint and pastels. The class itself will be an unfolding work of art following the creative impulses of those participating. Students will need a box of willow charcoal, and a kneaded eraser. All available at Artisan Art Supply, 2601 Cerrillos Road, Santa Fe.
