Mixed Media Workshop
“Abstraction by Design” A mixed media workshop given by Michael Shemchuk(Shem).
Shemchuk is a SF Bay Area artist who is represented by several fine art galleries.He shows his work internationally. His mixed media abstractions combine the use color, line, textures and composition to enable a pictorially designed space that is layered with both a visual meaning and an undeniable intentionality.
The Exercise: We will be working on a diptych:Duets.(Two separate panels synced to work as one linear piece).The focus here is to simplify and un-clutter. To create ,within the square, a surface with fine textures, limited color and delicate line(marks). The materials (mediums) we use are also limited: Paper, paint (6 colors) & graphite. Students in this work shop will not only be employing their painting and collage skills, but will also be applying their design, balance and layout skills as well.
NOTE: Class size limited to 8 students
WHEN: June 17-18 2017
