Exploration in Art: Hiking and Touch Drawing with Susan Bakaley Marshall and Chris Marshall

August 5 @ 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM


Making art is like walking in the forest: we slow down, come back to ourselves, yield to a deeper source of knowing. In this workshop we’ll go walking mindfully on easy to moderate wildland trails of our local land trust through forest and marshland, softening our gaze, opening ourselves to light, pattern, and impressions, welcoming amazement. Then we’ll return to our light-filled studio to do Touch Drawing, a simple yet profound process. Paper is placed over wet paint and the pressure of the fingertips creates images on the underside. Even an unconfident artist can experience the fulfillment of seeing their interior life come alive on paper as multiple new images emerge (view a one minute video at http://touchdrawing.com/touchdrawing/). No art experience is necessary.

Maximum group size 8.

Sliding scale $80-110 possible. Please be in touch with Nancy.
