Drawing as a Means of Self Discovery Masterclass with Chuck Ceraso

January 13 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm MST

Join us for a two hour workshop on the process of seeing and drawing and how it can open us to a deeper experience of self as well as of the object that is being drawn. Artists throughout history have described the experience of losing the sense of a boundary between themselves and the object of their gaze. They have described an experience of joy, well being and even love that rose up within themselves as they drew or painted their subject.

In this workshop you will learn how to go beyond ideas of right and wrong, good and bad in the act of making lines on paper and in the process of observation. You will learn how to have a deeper sense of awareness in the moment and how to stay with that awareness and not slip into mind and concepts. You will learn how to sense the presence of something as simple as a mug as you explore its shape and form.

Chuck Ceraso:

Chuck Ceraso studied art at the University of Notre Dame and painting with Henry Hensche, at the Cape School in ProvinceTown, MA.

Chuck has been a sought after instructor at the Denver Art Museum, the Art Students League of Denver and the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities for many years. He also holds ongoing classes in his gallery and studio in Lafayette, CO. His work can be found in public and private collections throughout the U.S. and Europe.

“I learned that visual perception is much more complex than I had ever imagined. I learned that what we think we see and what’s actually in front of us can be quite divergent. We’re taught from childhood that our job with seeing is to know the names of things, cat, house, ball, tree, etc. and with that we actually lose our visual curiosity. We see a tree and because we “know” what a tree is we don’t see the rhythmical patterns in the limbs and leaves, we don’t see the patterns of light and shadow, we don’t see the colors that the light produces. This conceptual focus actually teaches us to not see.
