THE ART OF WORKING ON AN EPIC SCALE
Instructor: Lisa L. Cyr 

This exciting workshop will focus on creating large works of art in water-based media on canvas, utilizing a freeform and fluid process that connects the mind, body and hand. For expressive signature mark-making onto the grand-scaled painted surface, altered, repurposed and custom tools will be employed.

Working in a painterly freeform approach, the class will explore automatism techniques and approaches to ignite spontaneous visceral responses. Through interpretative sound and essential oil stimuli, unique experiences, rhythms and movement create a stream-of-consciousness approach to painting. The interpretive experience transforms the artmaking process into a performance, where the pictorial surface becomes a theatrical stage and the paint, mediums and instruments are the dramatic actors dancing across the surface. Zen-based mindfulness, studio meditation and rituals, yoga ideology and so much more will be included in this unique workshop.

EXPRESSIVE MIXED-MEDIA DRAWING TECHNIQUES: 
Instructor: Lisa L. Cyr 

This workshop will explore alternative, signature mark-making techniques and approaches using altered, repurposed and custom tools in graphite and charcoal. Topics will include turning graphite powder into acrylic paint and applying it to the surface in intriguing ways, employing handmade eraser templates, custom printmaking plates and stencils to create unique textures, using water-soluble graphite to create unexpected results, applying resists and dissolves to activate the drawing surface, uilizing collage techniques and working on a textured ground. Both additive and subtractive processes will be investigated, providing an extensive array of visually-stimulating possibilities for artists to explore.
