Art making is one of the oldest tools used for telling the story of our lives. In this class we will utilize visual art techniques to craft paintings that hold our own self reflections and stories within them.
We will use exercises that build on the idea that we can all access and relay details of our lives through the process of creativity and introspection. You will learn basic visual art techniques that use symbolism, color, line, and form to evoke imagery that is representative of emotion and place.
You will have a beautiful array of materials to work with including hand-made egg tempura paints & natural pigments, as well as mixed media conventional art supplies , such as: colored pencils, charcoal, wax crayons, watercolor crayons & art pens on watercolor paper.
This class has also been known as “tracking the self” which is a way to use art experiences to deepen our knowledge of who we are.
You will be welcome to engage in a ritual sharing of your paintings at the end of the class, if you like.
All styles and skill levels are welcome; you do not have to identify as an artist to attend this class.
All materials will be provided.
