What is a Series? Simply put, it is a group of pieces based on a common element or group of elements. You can base a series on subject matter, technique, a particular set of materials, a group of visual elements, or a compositional format. A series can be created in an afternoon – as in a group of quick collage studies – or last a lifetime. Many artists keep several series going throughout their careers.
To some, the idea of "Creating a Series" can be intimidating. It sounds so serious, and perhaps monumental. So I thought I would offer this workshop to clarify that “Working In Series” is a process, a way of formatting your art practice, rather than a goal or a finished product.
• Working in series allows you to explore ideas more thoroughly, give them some breathing room.
In this one-day workshop we will create several small series, using primarily acrylic paint and collage. Most importantly you will learn the practice of working in series as a way to keep your creativity alive and thriving!
• Acrylic paints: bring some artist grade acrylics as well as craft paints
