Drawing the Landscape w/ MEGHAN WILBAR

October 23, 24, 25, 2017

Boulder, CO


“The natural world holds the key to abstraction through the dance between colliding forms and the interchange of negative and positive space, light and color. I use this natural abstraction to create paintings that evoke the experiences one has within one’s surroundings. The paintings are brief histories of moments constantly shifting, reorganizing to reveal the underlying structure in the landscape.” – Meghan Wilbar

This workshop will focus on the process of seeing and translating the experience of the landscape in simplified shapes and colors. You will explore a drawing technique that combines elements of collage, pencil line drawing, silverpoint and ink washes to emphasize space and movement within a landscape. This will be a outdoor workshop.

Meghan Wilbar received her BA from Knox College and her MFA from the New York Studio School. She has been awarded several fellowships for artist residencies and has her work in private and public collections. She currently lives and works in Denver.

Full cost of this workshop is $350. A 50% deposit is required to hold a spot. Please contact artworkshopsboulder@gmail.com with questions and/or to register
