Drawing Without Lines | Jaimie Healy
12 sessions: Wednesdays, January 28–April 22 (no class March 18)
Location: Studio 14
"How does the impulse to draw something begin?” —John Berger
“We who draw do so not only to make something observed visible to others, but also to accompany something invisible to its incalculable destination” —John Berger
This interdisciplinary course will guide you in developing and furthering visual skills and critical thinking through careful observation. This is not a traditional drawing class where you will be sketching from still life with charcoal and pencil, but rather looking at line through other forms and modes. This course combines processes of collage, mixed media, assemblage, sound, and pencil. Individual critiques, group discussion, and field trips to galleries will supplement the studio experience.
Jaimie Healy creates work that moves across disciplines from painting, to sculpture, and performance, also drawing from the written word in poetry, philosophy, and psychology. Considering her art a form of writing, one encounters objects as words and arrangement, a syntax in which none of the relationships are manifest. Selected exhibitions include: Interface gallery and n/a in Oakland; 2nd floor projects and luggage store gallery, in San Francisco. Healy is interested in ideas of consciousness, and began her schooling studying art and revolution of 1789 France at Hampshire College, traveling to the Ukraine as a Christian missionary in her youth, and later receiving her BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute (2006) and her MFA from the California College of the Arts (2013). She is represented by [ 2nd floor projects ] San Francisco. http://jaimiehealy.tumblr.com/
