TEXTile: Drawing, Weaving and Writing

Kenturah Davis

Tuition $1,225
Code D0511-24

This exciting, mixed-media workshop explores the intersection of drawing, writing and textiles. Through these processes, students discover the subtle ways that we encode material, causing meaning to appear and disappear from view, and how the combination of text and image can create a rich narrative. The ancient technologies of weaving are introduced as a way to bridge the process with that of writing. Students experiment with the method of making paper into thread and weaving it into a cloth. Emphasis is placed on how these media merge together to create a powerful narrative.

Incorporating Personal Imagery into Painting

Yari Mena

Tuition $1,225
Code D0512-24

Participants approach the process of integrating memorabilia and personal imagery into paintings as they deepen their practice. Students use found and personal photographs, manipulating them through analog media such as paint and collage. Pushing and pulling against the line between abstraction and representation, students find new access to generating images and content using a synthesis of many source materials. They create a small body of personal work throughout the week using acrylic, other water-based media, and collage on canvas and heavy weight paper. Topics for discussion are conveying personal perspective, achieving multilayered surfaces, and creating visual space through shape, pattern, texture, and color relationships.

Participants follow a four-step method of creating a collage through Observation, Deconstruction, Rehearsal, and Assembly. Demonstrations on cutting, gluing, and working with water-based paints inform students how to construct a collage. The course covers the generation of inspiration, planning, composition, and final adjustments. Students experiment with collage to create a still life, a landscape, and a portrait of their choice.
