WATER-BASED MEDIA STUDIO WORKSHOP AND CRITIQUE
This studio workshop focuses on a variety of water-based media, including acrylic, watercolor and natural ink. Participants will engage in their own work in private studios affiliated with Mass MOCA, with both private and group critiques, and workshops in specific media. Emphasis will be on expanding one’s own personal subject matter and style with the aim of building a new body of work. Advanced students are encouraged to apply, and can participate as desired in group activities.
While living in Asia, Sarah studied making natural inks, reviving the ancient practice of deriving color from plants. Since then, she has been a practitioner of ink-making, and author of COLORS: Passages through Art, Asia and Nature, a book of essays about the role of color in life.
Dialoging on aspects of having an artistic career will take place regularly, as well as visits to Mass MOCA’s galleries, the Clark Museum, and Williams College Museum. For many, the workshop will be a chance to hone skills, solve lingering problems in the course of painting and drawing, and get a body of work done. Others may acquire new skills to jumpstart their painting in the future.
Participating artists will bring their own watercolor, acrylics, tools, and papers or canvas. Materials for making natural inks will be provided by Sarah. All participants should bring a reviewed plan for what they will accomplish in the studio.
