Dates: August 5th – 9th, 2019 (9am-4pm)
Materials Fee: $130
In this course students will reinterpret nature’s deep imagery and essence employing matter from nature itself, within a limited palette. Paint, ink and homemade gesso will be made from inorganic and organic sources including pine soot, shells and earth minerals. Natural metallics will be introduced for warmth and depth. These arcane processes have been employed for thousands of years on cave walls, screens, scrolls and aboriginal works. A variety of drawing, painting and collage techniques will be covered to cultivate individualized expression. This meaningful, process-driven, ecological (non-toxic, water-based) work truly nurtures the heart and spirit. Abstractionists and realists at all skill levels are welcome.
Judith Kruger is an American visual artist whose abstract paintings, prints and mixed media works explore Human-Environment connectivity. She is recognized internationally for her advocacy for natural painting materials and ecological, historical processes.
