Where does inspiration come from? Many artists draw inspiration from moments in the history of art, although it may not be readily apparent when looking at their work. In this interdisciplinary, 2D workshop, you will explore what it means to draw inspiration from art history while creating unique, individual works of art.
The first three mornings will begin with a brief lecture on a specific time and place in art history. This will be followed by a discussion of a small selection of artworks, including sharing ideas about how individuals might use a piece as a jumping off point to create one original work per day. Breaks for small group discussions and critiques will take place after lunch and at the end of each day. The final day will begin with a conversation about the work completed in the first three days, while the remainder of the day will be dedicated to individual pursuits, which may include completing unfinished work or beginning a new project. Open to all levels and drawing and painting media.
