Drawing is an essential component in the lives of working artists. Regardless of experience or levels of skill, drawing connects us to a sense of being present and engaged directly with the act of creation. Drawing reveals rich and complex avenues of thinking and feeling through the creation of images from a seemingly infinite variety of sources. This workshop will involve an intensive process of discovering directions through very focused, explorative drawings that make use of objects found in and around Provincetown. In the studio, these source materials will be transformed through a process of imaginative drawing from the ordinary into the extraordinary.



Early in his career Paul Stopforth created bodies of work that were startling in their courageous engagement with the repressive society in which he lived. Invited to be artist in residence at Tufts University, Stopforth left South Africa for the United States in the late 1980s, despairing that there would ever be change in his country. He taught drawing at Harvard University and at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Stopforth has exhibited in galleries and museums in South Africa and the United States. In 2004 he delivered the Ruth First Memorial Lecture at Brandeis University. He is represented by The Schoolhouse Gallery in Provincetown.
