About the Workshop

In this drawing workshop, we will explore materials through a visual, physical and analytical process to develop distinctive approaches to abstraction. Varied drawing experiences will help students build vocabulary, create space and structure, and investigate possibilities within a visual language. The studio workshop will become an experimental lab to create new work, informed by discussions, presentations and intensive studio exploration, and tasked with producing sophisticated abstract drawings. All levels can benefit from the methodology pursued in this workshop.
