January 4th – 6th Painting Workshop: Temperature

 

2015_1215_16001400

Nameer is back from Africa with a drawing process developed in his travels through Tanzania’s Usambara mountains, the Serengetti Plains, Lake Tanganyika and Zanzibar. In the last month he was immersed in a social drawing project in Lagos, Nigeria. The sweltering equatorial climate drew him to certain ways of addressing subject matter in his drawing – tonal and textural choices in the patterning of surface and development of spatial structure.

Now for this summer workshop we take temperature as a serious consideration in developing  the means of painting, cool to warm colour choices, the scale and texture of surface pattern and how they serve to develop a physical climate within the painting.

Barbara is developing a menu for the weekend that  reflects the theme of temperature and climate, her provisions are a major part of the weekend experience.
