Image and Imagination
Instructor: Rosalie Dace
About This Workshop
Where do ideas hide, and how do we find and develop them without being totally overwhelmed?
In this class we deal with all those difficult questions that other people seem to find easy, such as ‘Where do you get your ideas, where do you begin, and how do you know when to stop?’
You will find practical ways of generating ideas, developing designs, then editing and paring them down to make several small pieces, developed from your original ideas.
Discussions and examples will include practical studies in paper and fabric as you sketch, cut and then stitch to make a series of small works, based on your richness of imagination.
Surprise yourself as you work first in paper and then in fabric with the exciting results of vague ideas you were searching for and thought you couldn’t find!
Emphasis will be on composition, positive and negative space and shape, color variation and choice, contrasts and subtlety, tonal value, and pattern.
By the end of the class you will have heightened your design sensitivity, learnt how to expand ideas to create new individual designs that best enhance them, and will have made several small
studies suitable for further development.
Short discussions and critique sessions form an integral part of the class dynamic.
You won’t have to stare at a screen all day!
There will be two Powerpoint presentations every day, and you will have access to a recording of the presentations for your own use for a while afterwards.
Times are in Central Time.
8-30 – 9.30 We will start with a visual presentation, discussion and setting the daily focus for the day. We will see and have the opportunity to discuss clear images on your own device. I have lots of great images, and of course you will have been looking at images and ideas in preparation!
9.30 – 11.30 You can get on with creating your own work, and experimenting with the various studies that I have set. You have a choice of working on your own composition all week, and / or on the daily focus assignment. You may schedule time to talk one-on-one with me if you choose to.
11.30- 12-30 Lunch break
12.30- 2.30 Work on your assignments. Scheduled 10 minute one-on-one consultations with me can also be at this time if you choose.
2.30 – 4.00 Presentation to round off and discuss the day’s work you have done, + any challenges or questions.
This approach works well for the adaptable, versatile artists that we are, as it combines looking, learning and working time, both private and in a class group
Please email me any questions you have to firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know anything about you and work that you would like me to know.
Please put Image and Imagination in the Subject line.
I am looking forward to meeting you!
