Fluidity: The art of letting go

with Geneviève Sideleau

For students with experience

Playing with inks, earth, coffee and water-soluble art material, this class is not for the faint of heart but rather for the daredevils. We will work sometimes quickly, sometimes harshly, letting artworks dry vertically while scratching branches across our paper, are you able to rise to the occasion? We will drip, flick, block and repel. Stamp, stain, spray and sponge.
