DRAWING INTO PAINTING Summer School :: 7 – 11 Jan 2013

Integration of the Visual Language and developing your “Mark”

Summer School 2013 :: 7 – 11 January (changed date to:: 14th Jan-18th Jan)
Inverlochy Art School

This is a drawing into painting course, informed by Modernism & Contemporary Art, with initial focus on abstraction, mark making, structure, space and colour. Initial experimental abstract drawing will open out mark-making and composition learning to trust the first response. Collaborative drawing provides a good warm up, and a way to learn together in a light atmosphere. Over time the abstract visual language can be integrated into your current art practice

Classes will include ways to work with intuition and ways to get into the “Art Zone”. Participants will learn how to connect to their artwork, by learning to have dialogue with it and creating an intuitive response. Feedback: while the work is in progress will consider what fresh vision can be brought to your work to develop it further.

Bring: Bring your own artwork for feedback, to extend your work with new visual influences, and artistic processes. Feedback sessions are an ideal way to get yourself moving. Students are offered ways to extend their artistic ability and develop their artistic expression; one strategy involves having multiple influences blending aspects to create new work. Artists, art movements and visual influences can be referenced by the internet for discussion. This artwork can be then be developed further in class with continued feedback as relevant.

All basic materials provided.

Dhyana offers ways for artists of all levels, from beginner through to experienced to keep developing your work in their desired direction. Dhyana talks 1 on 1 or with the group to work out strategies that will help them progress, and to move into new areas. Work on your artwork in class, applying and integrating previous learning from the intro course and receive feedback while it is in progress.
