Part of a new series of art and drama workshops for youth at honeyjones, Explorations In Line is open to teens ages 14 - 16.
Line is the most primal form of visual expression. It is one of the oldest art types out there, with first line art cave drawings dating back about 80,000 years. The use of line has since evolved over the centuries as seen within the hatched parallel lines of DaVinci’s Renaissance masterpieces and within the line density and value work of contemporary artists such as Vija Celmins, just to mention two. We will consider these artists’ works along with the more abstract drawings by Wassily Kandinsky to inspire our explorations. Through a series of fun and innovative drawing exercises using graphite pencils, charcoal sticks and pastels, we'll discover how to use lines to suggest shape, form, depth, distance, rhythm, movement, and a range of emotions.
All skill levels are welcome in this more open-ended kind of drawing workshop.
Charcoal sticks, graphite pencils, and pastels will be provided.
Drop-ins are welcome as space permits. Class is limited to five students.
Reservations are appreciated. Please email [email protected]
Cost of the workshop: $35.00
Art workshops are led by local artist and licensed educator Jenka Foreman.
