From inspiration, to abstraction, to creation
Robert Dorr
Thursdays 6pm - 8pm
January 24th - February 14th
Members $120
Non Members $140

Take an idea from inspiration, to abstraction, to creation. This is a four week class, 2 hours each session, where we’ll take an original image, and theme, and then generate ideas for creating. You’ll learn to be a good self-critic (not the destructive kind) and you’ll learn how to describe your ideas, and expand on them
Drawing skills, while they are handy, are not necessary.
You will determine the final shape of your project. Obviously I’ll encourage you to think in terms of textile arts. But, sculpture, paper-crafts, and painting are possible outcomes as well.

Incorporating the written language into your artwork
from 120.00

Incorporating the written language into your artwork
Robert Dorr
Tuesdays 6pm - 8pm
January 22nd - February 12th
Members $120
NonMembers $140

Incorporating text/writing in your artwork adds a personal dimension to the piece. Even using a text from a book, your personality comes through the writing. Art journals, using a combination of watercolor washes, found objects, and personal journaling have become a popular way of working one’s art practice into one’s daily life. Nothing encourages the muse as much as giving her attention every day.  
The class will cover at least 4 different ways of using text in art.
1. Text as a geometric, or all over, surface. Calligraphy using materials other than ink will be covered.
2. Text as a background to work your own ideas over. This will be self-portrait (loosely defined) worked over text that you choose. It could be a type of journal, or significant poetry
3. Text as a way to add interest to shadows, or add detail in a watercolor.
4. Text used in pottery. I’ll be using the inspiration of potters like Jane Kauffman, and the Sumerians. (We may, or may not be able to fire the pieces. It depends on the pottery schedule)
Some of the materials you will be using are acrylic paints and mediums, graphite, chalk, and charcoal, watercolors, colored pencils, markers and possibly wheat paste. Please dress for the possibility of getting messy.
