VIRGINIA MOCA STUDIO SCHOOL
Join Amplify exhibiting artist Erin Fostel for a master class inspired by her artistic viewpoint. Erin Fostel creates meticulous drawings that invite people to consider their connection to the physical spaces they inhabit.
In this workshop, Fostel will demonstrate how to create rich tonal values with charcoal. Students will begin with an exercise in creating a continuous value scale, which will include tips for how to use different types of charcoal and how to blend them. Then students will apply those new skills to draw a landscape from a provided photograph. At the end of the session, students will be comfortable using both sticks and pencils, and have a greater level of satisfaction in using this versatile medium. Basic drawing experience is recommended.
Members: $50 Non-members: $65!
Amplify focuses on the experiences of woman-identifying artists in Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, and Washington, D.C. Virginia MOCA curators have connected with curatorial colleagues and asked them to share their recommendations of woman-identifying artists who are exploring identity and the gendered roles of women. Constructs regarding a woman’s identity can be complicated and loaded with political agendas and nuances; yet they are also fascinating, beautiful, and filled with joy when embraced in all their forms. Through a variety of media and approaches, the artists in Amplify explore some of the many aspects of what it is to be a woman. They reveal common themes from an intersectional, and deeply personal lens.
