Visual Art Workshop
Drawing, Knowing, Thinking, Creating
This daylong class will explore "drawing in the modern mode" through concept and hands-on experience. The workshop will meet in the Puccinelli Gallery art space at Gutenberg College. Students will learn a variety of drawing and mixed media (water-based) approaches to drawing. Through these different approaches, students will experiment and explore ways that contemporary drawing can be experienced as "knowing and thinking." Family friendly (ages 12+).
