Workshop Overview

In this workshop, participants perceive the landscape as something much larger than a "scene" or "view" as they collect information from it through drawing studies, writing and photos. In the studio, we consider ways to integrate these multiple aspects of place into a single, mixed-media composition that draws upon the fundamentals of art: line, shape, color, value and texture. Participants will seek correspondences in the landscape with respect to these fundamentals based on written prompts: e.g. "Locate an element that speaks to texture, to line, to value." Combining such elements will result in a rich, dynamic representation of landscape.
