Learn how to create abstract drawings using natural forms as inspiration.  We will start with perennials, seedpods, trees, rocks, and water as our forms of study and learn how to transform these representational objects into abstract formal compositions that reflect your personal interests.   We will use graphite, charcoal, ink, and a variety of paper surfaces to create art.   A group drawing, a final large scale project, study of contemporary artists, and a photo assignment will be part of this enjoyable class surrounded by the beauty of the Wild Flower Center.

Allowing the definition of art as “paying attention” and the notion that “creativity is the mind at play,” this class will emphasize the improvisational approach to working with the particularities of place. Each session will meet at a different location, where students will be challenged to create work from whatever is at hand, cobbling together serendipitous sculptures in situ. All activities will be ephemeral in nature perpetuating only through photo/video documentation. Discussion will center on ideas/ideals of impermanence and creating in public or private space, and what this approach means in regards to a capitalist economy
