Figure Drawing as Expression: A Zoom Art Class with a Model and Creative Empowerment with Laura Shabott

July 13 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

* VIRTUAL WORKSHOP *

5 SESSIONS: MONDAYS, JULY 13 – AUGUST 10, 9:30AM-12PM

$240 FOR MEMBERS, $250 FOR NON-MEMBERS | JOIN OR RENEW

Each of the five sessions will begin with looking at works from PAAM’s collection, or at each other’s art, as prompts for the material being presented that day. We start with gesture drawings, then move on to evolving exercises based in the Hofmann tradition of abstracting the figure while working from nature. Artists can create drawings, paintings, mixed media collage or sculpture.

The emphasis in the course, limited to nine people, is to make a body of work and develop, or refine, a unique visual language and the confidence that comes with acceptance of your true artist self. For someone who wants to dive into a practice head on, or someone who wants to experience connection with other artists, or someone who is ready to see themselves as new. All levels of art knowledge welcome.

Laura Shabott is a graduate from SMFA at TUFTS. Emily Mergel of Artscope Magazine writes “[the artist] continually draws inspiration from abstract expressionist Hans Hofmann and breaks forms into their most evocative essential…she seizes the opportunity to burst the gallery walls, speaking with intentional gesture in visual vocabulary all her own.” Shabott is now represented by Berta Walker Gallery. www.laurashabott.com
