Experiential Drawing with Linda Berkley
Experiential Drawing: Imagination, Observation, Action
Instructor: Linda Berkley
Week1: July 30 - August 5, 2023
Experiential Drawing is designed to inspire you, develop your skills of observation, encourage your investigation, support your intuition and the realization of your personal vision. Explore and expand the boundaries of your creative practice. Experience new mediums, techniques, and ways of thinking about drawing.
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. Open to all levels of experience.
Explore dry and liquid mediums, the layered and the transparent, in grand and miniature scale. Celebrate the joys of observation using methods of scientific illustration. Develop a drawing series. Consider sequence, narrative, and composition. Evaluate color, value, light, viewpoint and touch in drawing. Find 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!
