Art Lab: Celebrating the Creative Spirit
with artist & sculptor Liz Lescault
Spiral Design and the Golden Ratio
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.
