"Duality, Aesthetics and The Expressive Arts"
Thursdays, March 7 - May 16, 2024
 

A series of workshops exploring opposites and art appreciation utilizing Tamalpa somatic based approach. Through drawing, writing, embodied anatomy, natural movement, dialogue and improvisation we will develop personal perspectives and resources for navigating ourselves and our environments. Katharine Doughty studied postmodern dance, somatics and visual art at Hampshire College, paving the way for her work as a multimodal artist, massage therapist and movement educator, and eventually leading to training with Anna and Daria Halprin. Her approach inspires both artists and “non-artists” across disciples, ages, abilities, and backgrounds by sparking embodied creativity and assisting in personal growth. Dancing at mile zero since 2003, Katharine is an ISMETA registered somatic educator and somatic based expressive arts therapist.

Paloma Martinez bases her artistic practice on color theory, and is excited to share her passion for it. This workshop explores color and its theory through drawing and a detailed lecture. Students will learn how to use color to manipulate drawing composition, create harmony, and to contextualize their desired aesthetic and conceptual framework.

"Drawing Auto-Biographical Comics"
May 27, 2024
 

Draw on your experience to create graphic renderings of your life. Ajuan shares the works of several comic creators, showing how this diverse group of individuals draw themselves. Students compare the artists’ self portraits with the artists’ press photos, while Ajuan discusses the strategies veteran comic creators use to create a character to represent themselves on the page. Participants will then use the same strategies to create drawings of themselves, and using a handful of autobiographical writing prompts, create a 4- to 6-panel autobiographical comic.
