Non-Traditional Approaches to the Drawing Process with Rosemary Meza-DesPlas
February 24, 2:00 – 5:00pm
Members – $70 / General – $90
Drawing is a democratic process because it can be done easily without expensive tools by a child or an adult. It is merely the process of making a mark. There are various traditional media utilized in drawing for mark-making such as pencils, charcoal, conte, chalk pastels; however, the language of mark-making is expansive and includes non-traditional instruments as well. This workshop will focus on innovative approaches to the drawing process: the physicality of drawing will be stressed – the pull, push and drag of a mark-making tool across a surface. Participants will be using a variety of non-traditional tools to create finished artworks. A combination of wet and dry media will be utilized in this workshop. The emphasis will be on the visual element of line. Line has the potential to convey direction, texture, and emotion; it can imply value, suggest motion, define boundaries and imply volume. In considering the unlimited potentiality of drawing as a medium, it is recommended participants look at artwork by the following artists: Vik Muniz, Rebecca Carter, Monika Grzymala and Il Lee.
