New Strategies & Techniques in Portraiture with Rob Silverman

Share

Type:

Category:

Description: 

This class will concentrate on painting the portrait in a traditional and realistic manner using modern, simplified techniques. Students will paint or draw the portrait from a single pose from a live model over the course of 6 sessions. The following concepts will be explored and supported by handouts as well as demonstrations:

The effect of light on the form and how to choose an optimal lighting set-up to reveal the key ‘landmark’ features.

Creating dramatic effects by massing in the large forms and planes prior to detail exploration

Compositional guidelines that take the mystery out of positioning the head on the canvas.

Guides for establishing fleshtones that convey the illusion of depth, and produce pleasing color harmony.

Unique techniques to help convey likeness, expression and personality.

The class includes demos, handouts and personalized critique, tailored to the experience level of the student. Oil, pastel, charcoal, graphite and watercolor are welcomed

Pop Philosophy presents - The Inner Theater: Poetics of Self & Other

Share

Type:

Category:

Description: 

In a time when we are quarantined from others, separated from the world yet utterly unable to be separate from what’s happening in it, how can our imagination provide relief, pleasure, play, companionship and presence?

In this workshop hosted by collective.aporia, let’s have affairs with alter egos, witness the strangeness of the self, listen well, and process the present melodrama with our bodies and minds. This workshop will involve interactive readings.

[Please note that this is a two month workshop. Participants can sign up for December, January, or both.]

The goals of this workshop:

  • collaborate with the absurdity of this moment 
  • create an alter ego to play with
  • write, create, imagine, express, perform  
  • get out of our comfort zones, ask tough questions
  • connect to self and other
  • engage with our bodies to process

Materials:

  • paper & pencil or pen (we encourage writing by hand)
  • hashtags: #letsgetfamous #yourefamous #werefamous #risingstar #beastar

Bio:

Gabrielle Lessans and Danielle Ferrara are friends, poets and escapologists. Their collaborative contributions to the community include co-teaching college seminars, running memory care workshops and organizing underground poetry parties. Along with poet Marie Conlan, they founded Nocturne School of Lucid Writing.

Dani (MFA, Creative Writing & Poetics) is an experimental writer who wishes to obey nothing but the wild, all-consuming power of imagination. She feels called to seek joyful fascination in the face of finitude. From pseudoscientific philosophy to trance and shadow writing, her poetics engages with a wide spectrum of disciplines.

Gabrielle (MFA & RYT) is an experimental poet who fixates on dream, space, desire & birdsong. Certified in over 600 hours of mindful, somatic, & intuitive training, she orients toward the hearth where deep play & healing most intersect. Her pedagogy mirrors her poetic process; in that both tend to hinge on a contemplative, gentle humor toward the bodymind & other. 

Gabrielle and Danielle have remained in a state of perpetual shmooz since meeting at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics. Often, they masquerade as fictional former child stars Pam Swart and Perpetua Shnee, AKA Pop Philosophy. They have yet to receive free coffee on their shared birthday.

STUDIOBOOK {ONLINE}

Share

Category:

Description: 

Starting this September, STUDIOBOOK {ONLINE} is a new eight-week short course for artists based around the UK, led by Mark Devereux Projects. Practical, discursive and tailored to every participant, each workshop will address key aspects of developing your creative practice.

Made up of twelve, 2-hour workshops and two, 1-hour one-to-one mentoring sessions, STUDIOBOOK {ONLINE} will address the participating artists’ key questions and concerns; providing information, advice and guidance alongside open discussions and peer-to-peer sharing.

Marking the return of our successful STUDIOBOOK artist development programmes from 2015/16 & 2017, we’ve made some changes to ensure our work is more accessible following the recent impacts of COVID-19. We’ve simplified the way we are operating and transferring this year’s programme to be produced completely online. We hope this will widen our reach to those artists that may have parental, caring or other work commitments that would affect physical attendance.

The full cost for the programme is £380, with payment options available to spread the cost of the workshops across 1-3 months.

September - October 2020
