Design a Harmonious Notan with Andrea Czarnik – July 26 & 27 1-3pm – Notan is a Japanese word that means ‘dark-light harmony’. It is defined as the interaction between positive (light) and negative (dark) space. A Notan also shows balance, the yin/yang symbol is a classic example of this.  Japanese calligraphy of this sun is actually a Notan.  Explore monochromatic ink washes and brushstrokes that emphasize the light and dark balance of a notan.         $50 Member / $60 Non-Member

 

Is It OPTICAL or NON-OPTICAL Art? – With Andrea Czarnik – August 3 & 4, 1-3pm – Relax for two days exploring and deciding whether OP or NON OP ART is your thing.  OP ART is a style of visual art that uses optical illusions.  This form of art typically gives the viewer the impression of movement, flashing, vibrating patterns, or of swelling or warping. After a brief introduction to famous OP artists and their designs, try one of the four design paths. Simple tools are used as you build up your own OP AND/or NON-OP ART.         $50 Member / $60 Non-Member
