"Exploring Visual Language: Pigment Sticks, Oil, Drawing Materials, along with Cold Wax"
Lisa Pressman will guide you in the use of non-traditional approaches to drawing and painting while you receive inspiration from the layers, textures and sensations of Taos, New Mexico. Using mixed media, participants will expand their personal visual language and mark-making skills. Experience new ways of seeing, while enjoying a fresh engagement with intuition, freedom, and interaction with the unique qualities of this place – Taos; the high desert and the Mabel Dodge Luhan House and grounds.Plan to uncover new notions of the expressive element of drawing and painting. Materials will include drawing media, water media as well as R&F pigment sticks, oil paint and cold wax. Enjoy sessions of exploration and process rather than production.
