Using the beautiful and rugged terrain of the Croatian landscape as inspiration, this workshop will focus on combining collage, drawing, and painting. We’ll explore the visual language of line and form in combination with digital photography. Through a series of exercises students will be encouraged to mine their own process as they discover new ways of examining and depicting our surroundings.
We’ll have exclusive use of a large, airy private house perched on the lovely and historic Dalmatian coastline with sublime views of the Adriatic. Weather should be ideal, after the intense heat of summer, and the sea pleasant for swimming. Our accommodation is less than a 5-minute walk down a flight of steps to a quiet jetty and secluded bay. Split and Dubrovnik are close by and this is an excellent time of year to travel. Plan to stay on another week to take in the Venice Biennale, just a hop, skip and a jump away.
Students arrange their own transportation to Split, where we will pick you up and return you there at the end of the class.
The registration period for this workshop has closed.
