WORKSHOP with Natalie Jacobson

jacobson image for workshop

Getting ready for a day in the studio or just wanting to build your portfolio? Come!  This workshop aims to get you warmed-up. Over two mornings we’ll work through various quick drawing exercises that build on intuitive problem solving, as well as slower experiments using negative space. With brief discussions about what works and what doesn’t, the workshop seeks to be a non-competitive yet fast-paced atmosphere. Various methods of mark making will be explored, without using a brush or even color at times. We will be playing with fabric scraps and looking at a textiles’ potential to become part of the mark making. We we’ll be looking at the color white, playing with clay, and thinking about stains.

Artist Krista Varsbergs

Your August Summer evenings are about to get a bit more interesting, but only if you join Riverside Arts Center for its Tuesday Figure Drawing Open Studio.   We will be drawing a “scantily clothed” model in the beautiful outdoor space of our art center.  With a bit of cover up we can draw outside and have artists of different ages and abilities join in as we investigate movement in form and portraiture. These workshops are uninstructed.

We will start with 2 to 5 minute gesture drawings and then move into 10, 20, and 30 minute long poses.
You don’t have to stay inside to make art, let us meet in the garden.
