BEGINNING DRAWING

tree

 

Artists are "See-ers". They literally see the world around them in a different way than the rest of us. Yet, all of us have the ability to be "see-ers".

To learn how to draw, we must first learn to "look" without preconceptions. We will practice this artist's way of looking and drawing from observation, and experiment with a number of drawing techniques that have been used by artists over the centuries.

This class is geared towards beginners... but is suitable for those who wish to refresh their drawing skills, or just need a class or assignment to get them going.

Tuesday evenings for 12 weeks, 7 - 9 PM June 6 - Aug. 29, 2017 Fee: 360$

Class is held at my studio space at the Casket Arts Carriage House, #302, located behind the main building beside the grain elevators, 1720 Madison St. NE, Mpls., MN 55413

Call Donna at 612-518-2378 or email donna@donnawebb.com for information and registration

(Pre-registration is required for the class to be held)

INTUITIVE WATERCOLOR PAINTING

THE SECRET LIFE OF COLOR

Using an intuitive watercolor painting process, this beginning class will cover exercises to explore the nature of each color and color mixing.

This method of painting is a gentle introduction to the creative process, and invites us to open to our unconscious, and through the process, allow an image to emerge.

The time spent with these pure colors and liquids is rejuvenating to the body and soul.

IMAGE AND ARCHETYPE

Join me for a weekend intensive working in charcoal with the primordial archetypes of light and darkness, inspired by the Collot methods of "Light, Color and Darkness".

As human beings with spirit and consciousness in physical bodies of will, matter, and action on the physical plane, we strive to find balance in our lives. This work with charcoal helps us navigate and negotiate the balance we seek.

USING HAUSCHKA THERAPEUTIC PAINTING TO EXPLORE THE 12 STEPS

 

With Hauschka Therapeutic Painting (Intuitive Painting) you begin the painting without knowing what the final image or theme will be as you open to your unconscious, and through the process, allow an image to emerge.

From a past twelve step participant:

"What did I get from this practice? A felt sense of inhabiting the Steps. In 12 step programs, we tend to focus on thoughts, attitudes, and service (thinking and doing). Deep and lasting recovery (transformation) blooms from spirit through the body.

Through painting, Donna Webb is offering an avenue to reconnect the spirit and body with the thinking and doing of the 12 steps. The spaciousness of the process allows spirit to bubble up through my body and out into images from my unconscious.

The exercises are a kind of contemplation combined with the physical experience of what it feels like to inhabit the steps and be transformed by them. This gentle process helps to produce "muscle memory" I can call on to help me practice these principles in all my affairs." S.B.
