"Exquisite Corpse" Workshop Saturday, February 22nd, 12-2pm
Led by artist, Nancy Good.
So, what is an exquisite corpse? Historically, it’s an artistic technique invented by the Surrealists who wanted to access parts of the mind repressed by societal rules. Without a preconceived notion of the final image, artists/participants produce a collaborative drawing, painting or collage by folding the paper or canvas and adding images or patterns that are unseen by the other contributing artists. This allows a fantastical parade of spontaneous hybrid creatures and unexpected juxtapositions to be created. The results are novel, exciting, unsettling, and most often filled with passion and surprising synchronicity. Contributing separately, one artist will create a “head,” another artist will create the "toe." Each artist will collaborate on two exquisite corpse creations and will take one home as their own work of fine art.
All ages are welcome, but if younger than 12, must be accompanied by parent or guardian.
