Linescapes with Melanie Lan
Saturday, September 30, 11:00am - 12:30pm PST
This class draws inspiration from acclaimed artists such as Agnes Martin, Bridget Riley, and Alma Thomas, who all used lines in their artworks in a variety of ways. This workshop isn't so much about emulating their work; rather it is a celebration of diversity and about finding your own personal happy place when creating a "linescape." Through the process of painting long, deliberate lines, or quick short strokes, we'll explore how our hands hold our brushes and discover what suits our personalities. We'll play with our own unique way of mark making and learn how to fill a page with a simple gesture.
