AGASC Presents
A Workshop by Kari Minnick
"Drawing on Abstraction"

“Drawing on Abstraction” is an update of my popular class: Realism to Abstraction:
Breaking Down and Zooming In.

The original title is still accurate; however, honing the title and refining the content
reflects new insights and ideas that spring from my constant investigations in art and
abstraction in particular. To “draw” on abstraction means to use it as a starting point or a destination; taking in the possibilities along the way.

This accessible art class for kiln workers will be of interest to artists such as printmakers and painters or anyone for whom visual expression in glass is desired. The content is easily translatable to other media. Starting with their own images, photos, clippings, etc., students will examine why certain imagery appeals to them, how to isolate the potency of the image, dissect, vary and ultimately move toward meaningful abstraction. Drawings, paper cut outs and/or test pieces, will be the basis for a series of projects in the class and beyond. Using Bullseye sheet and accessory glasses, students will be introduced to processes that enable strong composition, rich surfaces and depth. Using multiple-firing processes, students will consider both sides of the glass Topics to be covered may include:

Getting started: facing the blank “canvas”
Realism, abstraction and points in between
Composition and visual editing
Theme and variation

While basic kiln practices will be touched upon, the focus of the class will be on the
expressive use of the materials and creating glass art based on the students signature work. Prior glass experience is beneficial but not required. Artists of other media are encouraged to enroll.
