WITH NANCY GRUSKIN
11 a.m.-1 p.m. Eastern Time
ONLINE WORKSHOP Searching in the late 1970s for a subject matter that was neither representational nor wholly abstract, American painter Robert Zakanitch embraced ornamentation as an alternative entry into painting, a so-called “third door.” This online workshop will explore pattern and decoration through painting, printmaking, collage, and cardboard and papier-mâché constructions. Slide presentations and demos will introduce the exercises each week. As the workshop progresses, each participant will work toward creating their own installation that includes hand-made wallpaper, paintings and/or collages, and sculptures. Participants will post images of their work on Padlet for written feedback during the first four weeks of the workshop. We will look at Padlet together during our final Zoom meeting, for a group discussion of participants’ completed installations.
