Four days: Tuesday - Friday, September 3 - September 6, 2019, 9:30 am - 5:30 pm

Course Description:

Reinterpret nature’s deep imagery and essence employing matter from nature itself within a limited palette. Paint, ink and homemade gesso will be made from inorganic and organic sources including pine soot, shells and earth minerals. Natural metallics and oxidation will be introduced for warmth and depth. These arcane processes have been employed for thousands of years on cave walls, screens and scrolls, and aboriginal works. A variety of drawing, painting and collage techniques will be covered to cultivate individualized expression. This meaningful, process-driven, ecological (non-toxic, water-based) work truly nurtures the heart and spirit. Abstractionists and realists are welcome. Many materials included in price.
