ARTISTIC DEVELOPMENT
Reframing the Ordinary: Are We Looking or Seeing?
Stuart Shils Thurs., Oct. 4, 7-8:30 pm

This is an intimate class for mid-range to advanced painters, designers, photographers or architects, for how to understand what you see and how to remake that into clear and intelligent graphic formats on paper. Using pencils and other drawing tools like litho crayons in sketchbooks, we will investigate how to recognize and understand the interior structure of the “perceptual moment” through drawing. We will also use the digital camera as a viewfinder to compare how the eye sees and how camera lens works, informing and enhancing direct perception. Working in very ordinary places on the street near the Art Center, we will understand how the everyday is visually extraordinary. Each day we will also consider (in slides and reproduction), the work of great masters from the past and present.
Lecture plus 2-day workshop: $181 M/$197 NM

This slide talk will consider how we see and feel and what informs the making of paintings, photographs and drawings.

As a group we will also experiment with the variety of FX acrylic mediums. Then we’ll focus on Acrylic Ink, its versatility and performance. After a Q&A session, each participate will receive free samples. Please call to register in advance.
