Landscape Painting and the Environment with David Kaarsemaker

July 17 @ 9:00 am - July 20 @ 4:00 pm
Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre, 139 Water Street
ST. Andrews, New Brunswick E5B 1A7 Canada
+ Google Map

This workshop will combine art history with art making, exploring how landscape painting in Western art reflects the complicated relationship between humans and the environment. This course will focus in particular on changes in the conception of depth in painting and how this corresponds with the increasing separation between subject and object in Western thought more generally. We will explore ways of extending and flattening illusory space, working in a range of media (acrylic paint, charcoal, ink, pastels...) and from a variety of subjects, including collage, hand-made models, and plein air observation. We will consider the mystical space of Byzantine Icons, the development of linear perspective in the Renaissance, the concept of the Sublime in Romanticism and Modernism, and the fragmentation of space throughout the 20th century.

The sky was….blue? Writing the Summer Landscape with Jonathan Sapers

July 22 @ 9:00 am - July 26 @ 4:00 pm
Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre, 139 Water Street
ST. Andrews, New Brunswick E5B 1A7 Canada
+ Google Map

How do you describe the summer? It’s almost impossible not to start with the temperature and the comparative brightness of the sun and if we are lucky enough to be in a place like St. Andrews, with the water, the trees, the birds and the whales. And can you really describe what happens in the summer – say summer love -- without framing it with summer details? As a result, describing what the sky was like in the summer in a short story or essay can become an exercise in rendering emotion or opinion through detail. In this course, we will experiment with describing our summer landscape in the creation of either short stories or essays based in St Andrews.
