DISCOVERY AMONGST KINDRED SPIRITS

This open group session is focused on being a sharing space. Regular attendees refer to it as a place where kindred spirits spend time creating together, while working on their own projects. This group operates based on the idea that creative experimentation in a supportive environment often stimulates an artist’s inspiration, and helps empower ideas as well as the successful acquisition and adaptation of new techniques. Water-media and mixed media collage have been recent avenues of exploration.

SCHEDULE

THURSDAYS from 12:00 – 3:00 

Location – Downstairs: CLASSROOM 1 in The Red House.

All mediums are welcome.

NEXT MEETING: APRIL 24th

General announcements will followed by an SVFAL artist leading a PROGRAM you won’t want to miss!  ANNE BEVAN will share with us what she and some of our other members have already learned:  HOW TO GO BIG!  Questions to be covered include:

  • What is the presentational motivation to create large works?  
  • What is the creative motivation to produce large works?  
  • What materials lend themselves to large scale artworks?
  • Does creating on a larger scale dramatically increase the cost of materials?  
  • How does scale impact the amount of time the work requires? 

Anne will walk with us to the Monte Vista Hotel to view some larger works on display, and then share with us her personal approach to the challenge of “GOING BIG!”.
