VIRTUAL ART SALON WITH ELIZABETH FERRILL.
RENDERING THE TANGIBLE: DRAWING FROM LIFE.
APRIL 5, 2022 4-5PM MST.
“This drawing workshop allows participants the time, space, and guidance to examine and respond to what they see in the world. Each day students embark on the fascinating journey of drawing from a live model, still life, personal objects/relics and the natural surroundings. The course formally approaches drawing through exercises in line, contour, negative/positive space, value studies and composition. Conceptual intent is also explored through choosing personal subject matter and discovering ways to best articulate through the immediate medium of drawing.”
STUDIO MUSEUM: SLOW MOTION, SLOW BUILD, SLOW READ| WORKSHOP.
APRIL 5, 2022. 7:00PM EST.
“Join educator CJ Mitchell and writer Adjua Gargi Nzinga Greaves for a workshop inspired by Kahlil Robert Irving’s ceramic sculptures and digital collages, on view in the exhibition Projects: Kahlil Robert Irving. Through close looking, discussion, collage making, and reflective writing prompts, participants are encouraged to slow down their viewing process and consider the details that comprise a whole work of art.
Participants and facilitators will work together to examine and engage with the exhibition to generate ideas that will be translated into 2D, 3D, and/or written forms of expression. Participants will receive a suggested list of materials in advance of the workshop so they can make their own collages during the session. No prior art-making experience is necessary.
This program is free, open to all, and takes place on Zoom.”
