The Process of Intuitive Expression
Art Classes in Evanston
New to expressing yourself through art? Or are you a seasoned professional
who seeks new inflows of energy? This is a class for everyone, and we will
explore creating Process art on paper using various media, including
watercolor, oil pastels, pen and ink, and collage. Self expression and
freewheeling experimentation are encouraged--there is no “wrong” way to
put your thoughts on paper! Absolute beginners and seasoned artists alike
will appreciate the latitude and freedom that is encouraged. This is not a
methods class, there is no critique or criticism, and concepts will be
presented in an atmosphere of acceptance and free play. Based upon a
fusion of practices developed by Pat Allen, Michele Cassou, Stuart Cubley,
and other artists in the various Process methods, this class emphasizes the
meditative aspects of art as a practice of mindfulness and contemplation. A
variety of materials and papers will be provided to sample and examine on
the first day, and thereafter participants will be encouraged to bring their
own 2D materials and tools to work with. Please note: Materials with strong
odors such as spray paint, oil paint, and permanent marker are not permitted
in this class.
