The Language of Landscape: Mixed Media Drawing/Painting in Provincetown- IN PERSON WORKSHOP!

Bert Yarborough WEEK 11: August 16 to August 20 TUITION: $550 WORKSHOP: 10am-12pm EST DISCIPLINE: Collage OPEN TO ALL ON-SITE HOUSING AVAILABLE

UPDATE: This workshop will run in person! PLEASE REVIEW COVID POLICY IN THE ATTACHMENT BELOW.

The Provincetown landscape offers a multitude of possibilities for exploring one’s personal visual language. Dunes, marshes, forests, ocean beaches, and tidal flats present structure, form, color, and line that can inspire and illuminate personal expression. We will visit these sites to work and will experience what these spaces provide to our unique visions. Whether work produced be realistic, abstract, or a hybrid variation, immersion in these different worlds will embrace challenge and discovery.

For the first few days, participants will engage in a few structural exercises while experimenting with materials, scale, and format in order to open and loosen their approach to their work. Each individual can then explore potential paths going forward in concert with their colleagues. Individual and group discussions will provide analysis and support for moving forward post-workshop.

Housing is not available for this class.
If you are interested in taking this class but have accessibility issues, please contact ssiegel@fawc.org.
