"Is This Art?" Assembling Drawings without Drawing-- workshop series--6/9-6/24

What makes a drawing? What if you can’t draw the images you want for your drawings? How can you make work by hand that is interesting to you?

In this 4 week workshop we will explore alternate drawing and image making techniques to create compositions while learning about the basic components of an art work. Starting with collage, we will talk about and experiment with contemporary collage skills and strategies, add a few variations of image transfers using photocopies and add embellishment with embroidery. Though most of our exercises could be considered collage, we will go beyond the ideas of cut and paste, as we explore layering, mulitplicity, and alteration.

Through experiments and exercises using found images, layering and lo-tech techniques, we will work to free creativity from doubt and start making.

This class is open to all levels of adult students, whether you haven’t taken an art class since high school, or if you are a working artist looking for a new outlet. Collage can be a freeing, fresh way of creating compositions, whether they stand on their own or become sketches for other work. This class is meant to be a catalyst to (re-) discovering your creative practice.

This series is designed to complement the “I Can’t Draw” workshop series, though completion of one is not necessary for enrollment in the other.

Classes will be held on 4 consecutive Sundays starting 6/9/2019 from 3-6 pm at Paper Machine 6330 St. Claude Ave, New Orleans. All materials are provided. The fee for this class is $195.
