Learning to see like an artist can enhance creative solutions to the problems of everyday life, especially during grief, loss or conflict. Looking at examples from art history can sharpen the inherent ability to “see” as humans while unlocking our potential for change. Participants will develop skills for noticing elements from art that engage the senses and your heart surrounding loss. Learn how to dissect an art piece and create a personalized collage using found images and the tools learned in class. Artist Beth I. Robinson will share rich examples from the art world, simple drawing exercises and artistic prompts to allow avenues for “seeing” and exploring grief differently.  

Student notes: participants are encouraged to bring a packed lunch. A break will be encouraged to honor the topic at hand.

Plants can come to life on paper with the looseness that a paintbrush and ink provide! In this workshop you will learn about local plants of the North Coast and how to draw them using ink. Often times while drawing with pencil, we focus on perfection, but ink flows through our paintbrush to give character and more looseness! Master the balance between letting go in flow and hand-eye coordination in drawing. You will have the opportunity to study several local plants and will be given the option to draw them or feel free to bring in your own plant for creative inspiration!

  1. In the first portion of the class, you will learn about drawing with ink and handling a watercolor brush.
  2. We will utilize a few different types of plants found on the North Oregon Coast. We will have a short conversation about what plants we are inspired by and why.
  3. We will begin by loosening up our strokes through a series of exercises: painting Emphasis will be put on “play” and “staying loose”, focusing on line work, and maintaining our hand-eye coordination in brush handling.
  4. We will have a brief conversation about how we want to emphasize the characteristics that we like about our plants in our ink drawing.
  5. Let the drawing begin!
