Experimental Drawing Lab with Han Nae Kim

Join a class where you can explore mediums and techniques through unlimited ideas and play. Using mediums from traditional to non-traditional, you will experiment through a series of process-oriented practices which will incorporate the intervention of immediacy and haphazard markings. Unlike the sense of completeness found in traditional drawings, you will rather be exploring with a relatively incomplete gestalt or any possibility you will find in your work. In this class you will embrace art and art making with a different approach to push the boundaries of what we consider as drawing. You will be encouraged to process your own ideas toward the goal of completing at least one large-scale artwork.
