WITH NANCY GRUSKIN
January 14-16, 2022
ONLINE MIXED MEDIA WORKSHOP. American artist Robert Zakanitch has described ornamentation as “the third door,” an alternative entry to painting from representation and abstraction. This three-day workshop will explore ornamentation and
pattern-making through collage, paint, and paper. We will begin on Friday with a slide presentation on the role of pattern in 20th- and 21st-century art. Morning Zoom meetings on Saturday and Sunday will include warm-up exercises and introduce assignments for the day. We will then reassemble on Zoom in the evening for group feedback and discussion. Participants will share their work on an online platform. The emphasis will be on experimentation and discovering new processes.
