This is a 2-day workshop that takes place across 2 consecutive Saturdays: April 13 & 20

This is a two-part workshop where we will explore memory as a group and offer space for re-imagination or recollection of the past and remembering places and ancestors. Class participants are encouraged to attend with a family photo album, or a collection of photographs (digital or otherwise) they would like to reference during the duration of the workshop. This workshop requires beginning to intermediate experience in drawing and intermediate experience with acrylic paints, such as mixing, seeing, and understanding values. Tracing paper will be provided to participants to accommodate all levels of drawing experience.

In the first workshop, we will be sketching an image, referencing multiple points of reference (for example, a location of significance, a childhood photo of the artist, and a photo of an ancestor) or referencing a single photo/image and transferring it onto a 9×12” canvas or paper. In the following workshop, participants will use provided materials of their choice to study their selected image.  Materials that will be provided:

Canvas/Paper, Colored pencil, Charcoal pencil, Matte medium, Charcoal, Winsor & Newton/Gamblin oil paint, Liquitex Acrylic paint, Liquin/Linseed oil.
