Art Practice: Flora and Fauna

Art Practice: Flora and Fauna

With a focus on the overarching theme of flora and fauna, this course provides a “sampler” of art materials, processes as well as professional practices such as learning to write an artist statement. The following approaches and media will be covered over the 12-week period: drawing, mixed media, chalk pastels, pencil crayon, collage, books and zines, and professional practices. Course includes a drawing en plein air session in Summit Park; drawing from your imagination using pastel and mixed media; layering pencil crayon to create detailed drawings of plants and animals; and using nature walks as inspiration to create a narrative in a book format. The course will conclude with writing about your work and doing a short presentation. We will be looking at the exhibition Forestrial Brain by Jim Holyoak and Matt Shane and other contemporary artists working with plants and animals as their inspiration. Suitable for beginners.
Fridays 2pm - 5pm, Sep 16 - Dec 16 (no class Sep 30 or Nov 11) In-person
