Are you feeling “boxed in” by the square or rectangle of your canvas or panel? This mixed media and encaustic class focuses on moving away from the traditional format of painting and the possibilities of building and constructing with paper and wood.

Visual Record: Art as Artifact

Live online class
April 6-May 18, 2022

Lisa Pressman and Sue Stover team up to offer this concept-based course while incorporating techniques relevant to the topic. This class explores the concept of art as artifact, and the visible traces, remnants and fragments of something left behind. Incorporated into this focus is the concept of time, of real or imagined histories and of faded or foggy memories. The goal is to have you explore the nature of your own work, what interests you and what drives you to create.
