Chasing the Line; Mixed Media Painting
PENLAND SCHOOL OF CRAFTS, NC
May 28 – June 9 2017
Wide, narrow, scribbled, and buried: lines meander in and out of the painter’s toolbox offering texture and narrative. This workshop explores various approaches to working line into painting. We’ll experiment with compressed charcoal, line transfer, pierre noir, monoprinting, incorporating vintage materials, and handling raw pigments. Students will develop their own vocabulary of personal marks, confronting the different dynamics of line as they work in large and small scale and on various surfaces: wood, canvas, paper. All levels.
