STILL LIFE: Exploring Ways of Being, part one — online
As a creative form, painting provides us with a means to explore ways of being. Where am I at? What’s my energy like – in this moment? How am I feeling, right now? What do I think about? What do I care about? What do I desire? What do I repel? How do I like to mark? How do I like to move my hand and arm, and touch? And do I move and wield paint?
Using the motif of still life we will explore possibilities of being. Engaging with a repeating motif, this course will provide an array of approaches as an opportunity to expand our range of working. Through this expanded formal range we discover our own, inner, expanded ways of being.
We will be working in both drawing and painting. Drawing materials will include graphite and charcoal. Oil painting will engage questions related to a variety of attitudes, from objective tonal observation to gestural tactile projection, from the analytic to the intuitive, from the cautious to the explosive.
