Instructor: Bernd Haussmann Tuesdays March 16, 23, 30 April 6, 13, 20 1pm – 3pm (EST) 6 sessions on Zoom
This workshop is centered around your practice and your work, the work that you make and the work that you are. We will be addressing the story that you are compelled to explore and to share in your work. I will not be teaching technical aspects (although I am open to discuss those if the whole group benefits from such) nor focusing on any particular method. Your work is the guide for our sessions. I will be reviewing and (group)-discussing works in progress, ideas to be tackled, finished work the author is (not) satisfied with, making reference to art and culture, human history and philosophy and nature and more. The environment of the group will provide a healthy and stimulating sanctuary for all our thoughts and explorations and investigations. Everyone is an active equal participant in that process.
Open to all artists, working in any form or media, any level of experience. Participants will email digitals of their work (medium resolution, please) to the instructor a few days prior to the beginning of the workshop - and then on a weekly basis - to be reviewed. During the sessions those images will be shared with the group. Your thoughts will be welcome.
