Reinterpret nature’s deep imagery and essence by 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 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 at all skill levels are welcome.
Tuition includes material fee.
