Spring 2020 – Large-Scale Ink Drawing on Paper | San Francisco Art Institute | Saturday, 21. March 2020

Large-Scale Ink  Drawing on Paper Alice Gould 8 Sessions >> Saturdays, March 21-May 910:00am-1:00pm, Studio 13, $385
Use big brushes, squirt bottles, splashes, drips, calligraphy and layers of ink washes on large-format paper in this eight-week free-play class. This is a non-objective, abstraction-based class, and can include the use of personal reference material such as natural objects, photographs, or any source material that is helpful. Explore ink properties and develop an abstract awareness and language of your own. Work gesturally and throw your weight around. We will use black india ink, working from subtle washes to pure black, and open it up to color if desired. Instructor will demonstrate various approaches & tools; class time will be used to create multiple large-scale works on paper.
____Alice Gould received a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from the Nova Scotia College or Art and Design, both in the field of Painting. She moved to San Francisco after attending RISD and returned again after grad school, participating in shows at Adobe Books and other local venues as a member of the vital community of artists in the Mission District. Adventure and wilderness exploration have guided her from city to country to wilderness, and back again. Nature informs her work: large to tiny oil canvases and spirited gouache works-on-paper are homages to life forces, weather, plant dynamism, and paint itself.
