About the Event
BIRDS IN ART by Instructor Artist Raquel Hinojosa
Artworks have featured birds for thousands of years, as shown in the Lascaux cave paintings made more than 17,000 years ago. Humans have long been inspired by birds, their ability to take flight, and the unique perspective they have on the world around us. Birds, in art, are often depicted to symbolize a certain aspirational quality.
The “Birds in Art” workshops will focus on the art of the bird dating back to cave paintings and throughout history as depicted by a variety of cultures. Students will also learn about American artists, Alexander Wilson and John James Audubon and their contributions as ornithologists, naturalists and art illustrators.
Students will understand the elements of art as they become familiar birds in art, as depicted in a variety of styles throughout time. To understand, deftly critique, and practice an art form, students need to know the key concepts that art is built upon. Familiarity with elements of art (like color and line) and principles of art (proportion, rhythm, and contrast, among others) is what gives artists that fluency. Students will learn and understand these elements as they create original works of art focusing on bird genre.
All Scholars will work in the following areas:
• Expressive Drawing & Journaling,
• Drawing (pencils, charcoal, pastels, watercolors)
