NEW Intro to Modern Calligraphy

Modern calligraphy has become increasingly popular as it combines new and traditional tools to create a more free-form style of writing, maintaining the elegance of traditional calligraphy while allowing for more self-expression. In this course, students will receive detailed, hands-on instruction each week and learn the fundamentals of pointed-pen calligraphy - from nib preparation to basic strokes to letter and word formation. We will also discuss addressing envelopes, writing on non-traditional surfaces, and creating larger works. No experience necessary. Some materials required.

Doodling for Adults

This class will examine doodling as a cognitive attention aid, a visual language, a tool for ideation, and an aesthetic art form in its own right. Doodling is a pervasive everyday activity, the meaning and potential of which is still largely unknown. Recent studies have suggested that doodling while listening can signifcantly aid in the processing and retention of information. Today large corporations are contracting doodling workshops to improve innovation techniques amongst executives. For some artists, doodling can be the frst conceptual step toward creation; for others, doodling is their art. Students will explore all of these possibilities, creating doodle-art. Class limit is 15.

Drawing on Abstraction

The class will look at both non-objective and figurative abstraction in drawing. We will discuss the primary elements that make strong compositions while also broadening intuitive skills and imagination. This is a good class both for someone who wants to start developing their drawing skills and for those who want to expand on the drawing skills they already have. Through a series of exercises students will be encouraged to experiment with mark making, composition, black and white, colour and materials to develop their own personal imagery and process of working. Each class will begin with a short presentation on different artists use of abstraction. Bring pencils (B range), kneaded eraser, white eraser, 9' x 12' sketchbook, compressed charcoal and two bulldog clips to the first class. Class limit is 15.
