Have you ever wanted to learn to draw and paint from the figure without having to draw like Leonardo? Then this rigorous, but fun class is for you. Learn how to follow shapes, create space, and most of all compose your page, without painstaking proportions and measurements. We will use the model to look hard, but we won't be working towards 19th century realism. You will be composing and deconstructing on the fly, at a fast pace, alternating with very slow and deliberate observation. You can't be attached to the outcome, or even have any idea of what your work will look like when it is done. In fact your work will be undone if it gets predictable. This will be action packed 'process' with no possibility of staying in your rut if you have one. Absolute beginners are perfect for this class as well as advanced artists.

Join Kamla Kakaria and Romson Bustillo for a week long mixed media printmaking intensive in Chacala, Mexico (one hour north of Puerto Vallarta). Work with Mexican artist Miguel Perez at his studio Grafica Chacala, and our own Larry Calkins to create works inspired by the environment of the beach and the jungle. We will visit and take rubbings from the petroglyphs at Alta Vista. This region was originally home to the largely unstudied Tecoxquin) native culture dating from approximately 2000 BC to 2300 BCE. It contains 56 petroglyphs whose antiquity cannot be accurately determined. Aside from its cultural and archeological importance, the site remains an important religious center for the Huicholes who still leave offerings and perform ceremonies here. Tuition includes lodging for seven nights (Saturday to Friday) giving students a day to explore Oaxaca before the workshop begins. Prerequisite: None
