Concerts, Arts, and other events in the public interest around the Front Range Community.
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.
The point is not about making a picture of a mug, but rather about entering a different state of consciousness and discovering modes of perception beyond our five senses. Its about a kind of communing with the experience of “mug” and allowing that communing to make marks on paper.
