drawing + painting workshop: discovering the beauty of the earth and its grounding spiritual energy, With Anita H. Lehmann
In this workshop, we will begin by observing the environment of an arts-oriented desert community set in the beautiful Red Rock area and its surrounding context of Southern Utah, a few miles outside of St. George. Drawing by hand, reinforces and expresses the true experience of a place in time, again, using all five senses, and instilling permanent habits of drawing, as well as creating indelible memories.
We will use many tools in a ‘fact finding’ mission, discovering the ‘power of a place’ through drawing ‘evocative’ works, furthering a concept of ‘place’; utilizing tools of watercolor, pastel, charcoal, and graphite. A small group of 12 participants provides opportunities for plenty of one-on-one learning, lessons, critiques and demos: Fields trips in the surrounding area for gathering evidence and experiencing the incredible landscape together with a home base studio classroom at the Center for the Arts at Kayenta located in the heart of the Kayenta Arts Village. www.kayentaarts.com “Surrounded by one of nature’s most spectacular landscapes, Kayenta is located in the southwest of Kayenta’s protected enclave borders open space.” Workshop fee for 5 days: $500
