I will be a guest instructor in the afternoon portion of this class.
This workshop covers two approaches to drawing as meditation: the first are simple line drawings resulting close observation of natural forms and really learning to slow down and draw what you see; the second part involves making zentangles which are small scaled patterned drawings built around specific design structures. We are delighted to have Jill Ehlert guest artist as the instructor for the second half of this workshop. If you are simply looking for a way to relax and want to experience the joy and focus that drawing can bring, this is the workshop for you.

This exhibition highlights the way drawing moves from drawing marks to painterly strokes and sculptural forms. These three artists work in the realm between the abstract and the representational and use line as a form of expressive gesture and a vehicle for meaning.
