In January, we will play with spiral designs and the universal nature of the Golden Ratio in visual perception.
We will approach doodling as a meditative process and a way of fostering a contemplative frame of mind.
In future Art Lab sessions, we will play with a variety of media and genres including: doodling, drawing, collage, assemblage, and water color.
Art Lab will be about making art as well as the different ways we experience art and how it affects us. We will explore both the process and the product of the art we create. We will integrate movement and playful sharing into our art making experience sharing insights, joys and concerns.
These hands-on workshops are for both novices and experienced artists. You are invited to come to one, some or all of the workshops as the spirit moves you. All are welcome.
*any materials and supplies you may already have will work just as well for this project; the materials suggested below are just some of my favorites.
Art Lab will be offered monthly on Thursdays from 5:30 – 7:00pm ET.
Participants are encouraged to drop-in for any session – new themes and projects will be introduced each month.
This hands-on workshop series is for novices and experienced artists.
