Workshop: Transcribing Castle's Shed
Join Resident Artist Rachel Rickert in an exploration and interpretation of James Castle’s drawings. In this workshop we will learn from Castle’s ingenuity of composition by first doing charcoal drawings of his shed works, then personalizing the pieces by translating them into color with oil paint. We will focus on the difference in casually looking at a work of art, versus the deeply engaged looking when the viewer is drawing from that work, and how much more is revealed to the viewer/artist during the drawing process.
Space is limited. Registration required.
