Extraordinary times call for expressive art. In this 10-week course, we'll look at various ways to incorporate text into visual images in collage, drawing or mixed media. Learning to use words s visual poetics is the challenge, finding unusual ways to pair a word and image is the method, and exploring text as image, pattern, background, communicator, found object is the goal. You can experiment with letting words "conjure up" images, allow images to invite verbal exploration, and discover how random pairings of the two can open up whole new avenues of ideas for future work. For beginning and advanced artists, and all in between. No prerequisites.

Pamela Lanza has an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Before relocating to Asheville, she taught at UC Berkeley Extension's Post-Baccalaureate Art Studio program and the San Francisco Art Institute for 20 years. Her artwork has been exhibited at the Graduate Theological Union (Berkeley), UNC Asheville, Florida State University, California Institute of Integral Studies, and Stanford University.

Through visual and verbal analysis, increase the power of your work and overcome blocks that hinder the completion of paintings. The course presents ideas to help you explore the content of your art through irony, humor, narrative, mood and the use of unusual materials. Slide lectures, individual instruction, group crits and technical issues in color and composition help you to explore a particular style and become more independent by working in series. Eight weeks, working in class and in your home/studio. Prerequisite recent painting or drawing experience.

This six week course combines explorations of Josef Albers’ color theory with the energy and rhythm used by artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, Egon Schiele and contemporary Native American artists such as Sarah Sense and Shan Gosham (on exhibit in the Museum’s ‘Home Land’ show). 
Students learn to mix color to create glowing light to convey feeling. These are combined with pattern, repetition and negative shape to create energy. Individual critiques and in-class studio sessions provide instruction in water-based media (with tips to make acrylic look and behave like oil). Weekly slide lectures kick-start inspiration and provide unusual conceptual options. Individual critiques provide analytical tools to make small visual adjustments in the final work

 

All subjects welcome: figure, landscape, abstraction or combinations of all three. Lectures are posted online for review in case a session must be missed.

Experimental Drawing


Asheville Art Museum

NOVEMBER 2, 9, 16, 30, DECEMBER 7 + 14 — Thursdays, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.


Cost: $220 Museum Members, $240 non-members (includes some materials)

 

Drawing is much more than a realistic rendering – it is the most uniquely personal and fundamental form of mark-making, as individual as a signature. This six-part drawing class both demystifies drawing for beginners and encourages more advanced artists to practice drawing freely, in order to uncover unusual sources of creative imagery.

 

Students look closely at artists such as Ruth Asawa, Elaine Schmitt Urbain, Jim Dine, and Leonard Baskin, and practice fluidity of line and improvisational thinking that push the boundaries of what a drawing can be. Imagination and chance inform students’ work as they experiment with different drawing media and explore a variety of expressive styles.

 

Weekly classes include slide talks, work sessions, and individual discussions with the instructor. Students leave with 6-10 finished drawings, plus a notebook of techniques and ideas for future projects!
