For all ages 16+
This workshop includes exercises and discussions that relax your mind and open up the freedom to draw without self censorship. Develop the potential you have to make art that is creative and personal. Primarily we will be using Charcoal and paper, but feel free to bring any materials you desire. If you think you cannot draw, if you have artist block or just looking for growth, this is a class all can enjoy.
To share a little info about myself -
My daughter Lily and many friends with kids have inspired me to teach art again.
I graduated from the School of Art and Design at The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where I also taught art and coordinated art programs for children and adults in the community.
Now, I am working as a freelancer creating scenery for films and commercials .
But before moving to Brooklyn (2003), I use to spend the summers here in NYC painting abstract/expressionist portraits on the streets. You can see some of them here :
This inspired some classes I developed. "Street Art and Mural Painting" and "Free your Mind Art" starting with ideas behind street graffiti and children's art to develop a more personal approach to art. "Modern Art History" is another class where participants create unique works in each style of the Modern Art movements.
Now I am happy and honored to have the opportunity again to teach at FBR. Its a wonderful thing to share and explore the creative process. For adult classes I try to facilitate the action, push aside the intimidation of a blank canvas and the self critic. I think nurturing the kid within us all keeps us inspired and motivated. This is not usually a problem for young kids, so for the younger classes let's nurture this free spirited approach while they are still free spirited.
It's going to be a blast! :)
