Lost & Found: The Art of Letting Go w/ Jackie Reeves

  • Cape Cod Art Center 3480 Route 6A Barnstable, Ma. United States (map)

Loosen up and stretch your creative muscles! The goal of this workshop is to explore a variety of mark-making techniques with an emphasis on finding what works for you. Playfully experiment with drawing marks, painting spills, drips, drags, imprints (etc), and collage. The idea is to let go of control, get out of your own way and push your limits, allowing the materials to take the lead as you aim to develop a small series of artworks. With step by step guidance from Jackie, you will develop your skills with design and composition as you begin editing and composing images through a process using mixed media collage.

Slide show presentations of contemporary and historical artworks will be given to demonstrate how cutting, ripping, masking, glazing, and layering paint will add intrigue to your images.

All levels welcome
