Open Art Teachers Studio
TODAYS' THEME: Balance/Imbalance or Order/Chaos.
Have you heard of the art concept horror vacui? We will use this composition style, ie filling the entire page, often with lots of detail, as our prompt. Literally, it means fear of empty spaces, and is a propos – a way for us to direct any election jitters and feelings about the outcome, or lack thereof, in an active creative way! This is a very concrete art-making direction yet one that leaves lots of room for original ideas and improvisation. Can be drawing, painting, collage, and any combination. Can be abstract or representational, simple or complex, repetitious or varied, meandering or structured.
The goal is to actively FILL the entire surface with marks and imagery. Let that right-brain flag fly.
Materials: paper, paint, pencils, markers, scissors, glue, magazines, etc.
(Giving credit for the idea to UMVA Maine Art Journal prompt for their next issue.)
