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+).

Instructor Dr. Wesley Hurd is the founder of McKenzie Study Center out of which Gutenberg College emerged. He retired as a tutor at Gutenberg college in 2012 but is once again involved as a part-time tutor and member of the Board of Governors for the college. He received a Ph.D. in Education and Social Thought in 1988 and an M.F.A. in visual art from the University of Oregon in 2000. Wes and his wife, Carol, have lived in Eugene, Oregon, since 1977. Wes was nominated in 2007 for Portland Art Museum's Northwest Contemporary Artist Award. 

The Gutenberg College Workshop Series is an educational outreach program designed to serve classical education communities, homeschooling communities, and independent learners. The workshops offer participants hands-on, high-quality educative experiences delivered by knowledgeable instructors that help participants develop skills, understand the world they live in, and cultivate their intellectual acumen.
