Drawing Marathon – with Ophrah Shemesh

Course Full. To join the waiting list, please email info@nyss.org

Course Description

This Drawing Marathon will focus on pictorial language, as an experience of painting, and the workings of the creative process through deep exploration of the following themes: the stroke as a mark; the transforming process; visual phenomena; rhythm and energy; expression; subject matter vs. subject motif; the art of the line; practical representational aspects of geometry; the power of seeing; perception; the play of light; and the significance of themes. Participants will engage in drawing assignments, with and without direct observation of a live model, to internalize the importance of the stroke as a mark and an elementary unit of operation; ways to create a new existence that could have never existed before through overlaying and multiple stages; visual phenomena in the interrelationships between maker and receiver and the picture plane; visual rhythm as it relates to multidimensions; self-expression and personal content; representational aspects of geometry; and, ultimately, the power of seeing.
