TIME TO CREATE
Artists of all disciplines are invited to participate in our monthly Zoom Art Cafe. How do artists juggle the responsibilities of home, finance, and family life with art making? We will discuss effective ways artists of all disciplines can manage time to maximize creative output. Participants are invited to “check-in” — share your artistic endeavors, ideas for effective use of time, and questions.
Rough, shiny, bumpy, smooth. How did Pollock and Krasner use texture in their art? Explore the use of tactile and visual texture in this paint-collage workshop. Collect textured materials such as sand paper, corrugated paper, fabric, cotton balls etc. and a stiff board or paper, glue, and scissors.
What is creativity? Rip up your artwork and create a new one? Use a baster to paint? This live Zoom program highlights the tenets of creative thinking that are exemplified in Pollock and Krasner’s processes and their ground breaking abstract expressionist art. Following a live virtual tour of Pollock and Krasner’s studio and house, participants will be invited to try techniques in art designed to maximize creativity and break through blocks. Have drawing supplies on hand.
