Where:  Irish American Heritage Center, 4626 North Knox Avenue, Chicago

Supply Fee:  $5 per student

On a two-dimensional surface such as paper, artists most often work with a square or rectangular format. From the very beginning, we “come in for a landing” onto this shape, circling as we decide where to place our elements. Concurrently, a square or circle placed within the picture plane can be a grounding element for other parts of the composition. This class will explore the following:

 

-combining text or letter shapes with background or illustration shapes

-considering different energies: the balance between static and dynamic shapes, formal and informal, feminine and masculine

-breaking out of the box of the page border, breaking into the box of the square

-inquiring about our creative intentions: how we make art and why we make art

-catalyzing excitement for future projects

 

Our class will be a balancing act of sorts. In a fun and supportive atmosphere, we will free play with our materials and ideas as a way of opening up to seemingly endless possibilities. We will look at letterforms as both text and as design elements. Later we will harness these energies into page designs that can stand on their own with integrity while remaining unique to each individual who created them.
