COLLABORATIVE DRAWINGBeth Krebs6 sessions >> Thursdays, February 8–March 157:30–10:30pm, Studio 13, $295No prerequisite. Artists of all levels are invited to participate.
In this six-session course, artists of all levels are invited to step outside of what is typically a solitary activity and make drawings with, and in response to, each other. Our class community will be a space to improvise, build off of each other’s ideas, and sometimes be challenged by them. In addition to building community, working in a group context can help to clarify an individual artist’s vision. We will work in a wide range of media, including ink, graphite, collage, and watercolor. Class time will be devoted to completing paired and whole-class drawing exercises every session, reflecting on the collaborative process, and to looking at the collaborative projects of contemporary artists. Class will culminate in a large-scale collaborative drawing, whose direction and subject will be developed together over the course of the class.
____Beth Krebs’ work celebrates the earnest, heroic, and usually botched human efforts at transcendence. She explores this subject, with humor and empathy, by transforming physical spaces and by making sculptural objects, videos and drawings. She has exhibited her work in galleries and alternative spaces in New York, San Francisco and abroad, including the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), Mixed Greens, Smack Mellon, the Bronx Museum of Art, Station Independent Projects, the Cue Foundation, Real Artways, Minnesota Street Projects and the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art. She was awarded a grant from the Buchegger Foundation to fund an installation in Augsburg, Germany in 2012. She has been an artist in residence at the MacDowell Colony, the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, the Jentel Colony, Sculpture Space, and the Bemis Center. She was a recipient of a Joan Mitchell Foundation MFA Grant upon graduation from Rutgers University in 2004. She is currently in residence at Recology in San Francisco.bethkrebs.com
