2018 Summer Arts - Meredith Fife Day
The Poetry of Landscape in Painting and Collage – Observation and Beyond
June 17 - June 22, 2018
“O world, I cannot hold thee close enough! …”
In this multi-level workshop, you will paint on-site outdoors and work in the studio in collage, both with acrylic on paper, using the landscape as a point of departure and driven by individual sensibilities. Explore the possibilities of personal expression when observation is taken beyond rendered appearance into poetic encounter with what is seen. Supported by in-depth study of form and structure your skills will be enhanced, clearing a path to unity and enlivened form. In realizing the landscape's poetry, you will also be tapping into an authentic emotional and visual response in your work.Basics of technique will be presented in a simple way, allowing personal preferences experimentation and control. Critiques / feedback will be ongoing, one-on-one. Group critiques will take place mid-week and on the final day of workshop. Open to all levels of experience.
