Let’s discover deeper meanings to the intricacies of shape, line and color down in Tucson Arizona at our MISA-West Tanque Verde Ranch campus. You’ll learn to coax hints of reality from an abstract background, how to control values and colors for emotional emphasis, and how to suggest rather than delineate. You’ll explore working intuitively, responding to what shows up; working in a series; and will learn the mixing and utilizing of neutrals for softer, more ethereal abstracts. We’ll touch on notions of confidence, procrastination, vulnerability, curiosity, courage, play, metaphor, symbolism, and competition. You will create compelling art not only by focusing on technique, but you will discover your unique "content". Beginning students will find encouragement and confidence, while more advanced students will benefit from Joan's insightful solutions to their artistic challenges. Be prepared for a light-hearted imaginative experience.
