Choose from one or both weeks of this Zoom experience!
Week 2: Personal Landscapes, Personal Intention
Come discuss and be curious about your personal preferences of form, color and composition. Employing new techniques, we will continue to explore mixed-media collage. We will be working on the next (or final) layers of a mixed-media collage, and I will demonstrate and focus the class on creating more depth. Tissue paper, sheer fabric, bakery paper, medical paper are all welcome supplies for this class.
We will discuss depth of layers, depth of color and texture, as well as the metaphor- Depth of Meaning!
Your journey of personal compositions and preferences will be boosted by a new-found knowledge of layering. There will be an emphasis in our discussions on differences between figurative (representational), and abstract as well. Come explore your preferences, and hear from others, how they construct their personal compositions as well! As with the class last week, any old pieces in need of a “revival” are welcome!
Sarah Kahn is an artist based out of Massachusetts.
She is drawn to non-representational art, because it endows the viewer with the freedom to associate, remember, and find sensory response. Amidst passages of color, form and textures, one is invited to draw upon internal imagery and personal experience Kahn works in a sculptural manner, layering paper, fabric, drawings and prints. She is under representation at Soprafina Gallery, SOWA Art District, Harrison Ave., Boston, MA.
Sarah also teaches art to a Women’s Shelter and a weekly group of adults with developmental disabilities. She also works privately with adults in her psychotherapy practice, using art to aid in the process of working through difficult life transitions.
