We are excited to have Stuart Shils back teaching an online drawiing seminar for us that is called "Reframing the Ordinary"
A seminar exploring the possibility of locating yourself graphically in the moment.Go Here to see more: www.concordart.org
Friday, Saturday & Sunday, June 19 – 21, from 10am - 1:00pm and following the class, a 30-minute meeting/conversation with each participant at a time convenient for each person.
These three lively mornings will explore the relationship between drawing and observation, examining how close and clarified observation can hone our visually analytical minds, regardless of what it is we are looking at.
Each day will begin with either a slide talk or a guided conversation exploring issues like:
the meaning of simplification
the shaping and reshaping expectations
where to begin and how to begin
what matters on paper.
Followed by a sequence of guided exercises intended as tools for carrying back to your workaday studio lives.
This is not about recipes nor techniques but rather, addressing the evolution and structure of your own visual literacy.
Materials will be pencils and paper and a few other materials for collage, etc, that will be provided by the teacher in advance.
