Based on Steven Aimone’s book, Expressive Drawing, this workshop will guide students through a freeform and abstract approach to their work. This style emphasizes line and mark, rather than rendering a specific object, which for many people can create barriers to self-expression. Exercises start off simple and quick, encouraging students to work on instinct and feeling, while later ones focus on detail and refinement. The instructor will cover the elements basic to all drawing: line, mark, shape, texture and tone, then lead you through play and build exercises that allow you to explore these elements first-hand and produce richly satisfying pieces.
Each student will work on their own four separate 36″ x 36″ gessoed canvas with a variety of monochromatic media. Instructor will provide materials. $50 supply fee.
