Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain workshop in Sag Harbor in Oct/Nov!
October 28 @ 6:00 pm - November 2 @ 1:00 pm
I will be teaching Dr. Betty Edwards intensive 5-day drawing workshop at master printer/artist Dan Welden’s Studio-Gallery complex in Sag Harbor from Oct. 28 through Nov. 2. Tuition is $550 and includes the DRSB Workbook.
This is an intensive immersion full of demonstrations and studio exercises that packs a semester-long art course into five days! You will develop the perceptual skills you need to draw with confidence, whether you are a novice or want to expand your capabilities.
Students will explore:
- The relationship of drawing and creativity to specialized functions of the right- and left-brain hemispheres and how to connect to a whole new way of seeing!
- A carefully sequenced learning process designed to unleash your creativity and perception, enabling you to produce accomplished drawings from life
A $200 deposit will secure your spot. Refundable up to 40 days prior to the workshop. Registration is limited to 15. Students that are staying at the Air BnB are asked to check in on Sunday, Oct. 28 between 1 and 4pm. There will be an orientation and ‘meet and greet’ for all students in the workshop space at 6pm. Workshop hours are Mon. through Thurs. 9am to 4:30pm. Friday is 8:45am to 1:00pm.
Right next door is a large house (Air BnB) w/6 bedrooms. This house will be available for our students, on a first-come first-serve basis. Rent will run from $75 to $135 a night. There will be a discount for couples. There is also an option for camping, if anybody wants to ‘rough’ it. Please email or call Nina (info below) for more information and booking.
Not only will students be working in a wonderful open gallery space, there are going to be yoga and tai chi classes (optional) in the upstairs “Barefoot” room, for after or even before class, depending on demand.
And there is a wood-fired Sauna!
