Drawing off the Page with Ivia Yavelow
Experiment combining drawing with collage, print making, installation, and sculpture to create unique mixed media pieces.
4 week workshop: Wednesday evenings 7 – 9:30pm
April 4th – April 25th or May 9th – May 30th
With attention to process and concept over finesse of the finished product, students will use charcoal, graphite, paint, and ink to make immersive, layered works that combine multiple media and styles, all learning from each other and investigating how art objects and their contexts inform each other. This class will focus on a process and material based approach to working. We will also consider how drawings are situated in spaces to be presented (such as books or walls) and varying methods of mounting work on walls, floor, and ceiling.
Participants are encouraged to bring in found objects to make marks with or special papers or images to draw on. Any other mark making tools of choice: charcoal, India Ink, pencils, graphite (compressed or powder form), crayons stamps, markers, etc.
