Experimental Drawing with Linda Berkley
Instructor: Linda Berkley
Week1: July 31 - August 6, 2022
Join this workshop to explore and expand the boundaries of your creativity practice. Experience new mediums, techniques, and ways of thinking about drawing. Open to all levels of experience.
Experimental Drawing is designed to inspire you, encourage your investigation, support your intuition and the realization of your personal vision. Each morning starts with energizing drawing exercises, prompts, and demonstrations in response to the natural setting of Menucha, followed by one-on-one creative and technical support from me and time for your individual project development.
We explore dry and liquid mediums, the layered and the transparent, in grand and miniature scale. We develop a drawing series started from observation, considering sequence, narrative, and composition, evaluate color, value, light, viewpoint, and touch in drawing. We resource inspiration from the literal to the sublime through the drawing process. Drawing becomes both meditation and dance, an intentional and intuitive action. Make your mark!
