UnArthodox Collage Ventures – 04/02/16

Collage is the new medium! it’s personal, impersonal, irreverent and dynamic. It gives artists more space for personal expression and being a medium of total experimentation, it fits the profile of UnArthodox to a “T”. Here are the very successful examples of experimentation from some daring students…

UnArthodox NYC: Expressive Drawing #4 and #5

From working with Line, one lands at Shape and from a 2D experience, we went 3D. Exercising with volumetric drawing, the continuous line drawing not concerned with the contour of shapes, doing a wire sculpture of the shapes that had been drawn was a logical and exciting adventure! These are some of the works created in the 4th class. Then, back to drawing the following week, but this time with mixed media, namely collage, the work transformed by mixing into the equation color, shapes and lines. Contratulations to my wonderful students, Rossana and Gabriela. The work is excellent.

UnArthodox Collage Ventures #2 – 03/23/16

Collage is the new medium! it’s personal, impersonal, irreverent and dynamic. Being a medium of total experimentation, it fits the profile of UnArthodox to a “T”. Here are the very successful examples of experimentation from three daring students…

UnArthodox Studio: Brushless Watercolor #6

As the brave new students of a brand new workshop, Jun and Sid did wonderfully and explored watercolor from a different perspective: by thinking outside the box “brush” and trying dripping, scraping, wiping, stamping paint besides using aditives from saran wrap, to salt, alcohol and liquid masking fluid, all with great results. This was the last class of the 6 week workshop. Congratulations, guys! you did great!

UnArthodox NYC: Expressive Drawing #3


All about the power of LINE: how it can indicate movement, direction, establish tone, give emplasis, serve as a symbol, express feelings, emotions, indicate speed and time and be the most abstract of all concepts in Art. By being either angular or wide, a line can convey force, weight, strength, aggression, violence and by being fluid and circular, convey tenderness, love, happiness. Wonderful creative examples of the “Line on Stage”:

Minerva’s Drawing Studio 03/22/2016

Minerva Durham invited me to present watercolor to her Tuesday morning class. This was the second class in a 2 day workshop. Eventhough it’s a very mixed group in terms of experience with the medium: there were newcomers and experienced watercolorists, all the work done today was very vibrant and full of life. I can’t take any credit for it! but I was there and here’s a record of this great production. Congratulations to all of you! Thank you Minerva for this opportunity.

Spring Studio 03/15/16

  • Once again, I had the pleasure of introducing watercolor to some of the students who draw the figure on a regular basis at Minerva Durham’s Drawing Studio. Some had never used the medium and some were accomplished watercolorists. The watercolors are vibrant and full of life. Congratulations to all! I had a great time.
