I just came back from teaching a workshop at the Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill, Truro, Ma.
What a great place with big light filled studios, great staff and a beautiful setting.
The first day after introductions, I began the class with a 30 drawings in 30 minutes exercise with some graphite, markers, pencils and erasers. After, we did a walk around looking and talking about the "work". I made them each choose 5 of their least favorite drawings which I collected and then gave out to the other participants. They had 20 minutes to rework them. It is a great way to loosen up and get out from under the" preciousness umbrella". There was some groaning, grunting and sighing but the result was the inspiration for the rest of the week.
Next blog post!
Below are a sample from that first day:
