Drawing Marathon – with Michael Berryhill


Course Description

Something from Something

This Marathon will approach drawing with a “something from something” method of working. Most artists have a back catalog of images and ideas that are incidental in some way–we gather them and forget about them and keep them in the periphery. We will rely on a combination of accepting our marginalized sources and using them, as we simultaneously will ourselves into unknown territory. This Marathon will incorporate all of the fundamentals of building a drawing and will also consciously attempt to evolve or devolve into new territory. We will start with the influences and skills that we have and expand into what’s just adjacent to these things or what’s just beyond. All levels welcome!
