A contemporary interpretation of dreamplay employs black line drawing in the morning session and then color, mixed media and collage in the afternoon session.

Collaborative, Intuitive, and Surreal. All the makings for a great parlor game among the Dada artists of 1925, Marcel Duchamp, Andre Breton, and Man Ray, where chance and metamorphosis were techniques used to tap into the unconscious.

“Exquisite Corpse 2018”, a contemporary interpretation of their “dreamplay”, employs black line drawing in the morning session and then color, mixed media, and collage in the afternoon session to create finished works of art both humorous and fantastic.

In a “blind” round robin format, each finished section is then hidden before being passed on to the next player.

An exhibit and critique of all pieces completes this fun, creative, and revealing class. And each participant gets to leave with one of the finished Exquisite Corpses.

 

All materials supplied. Fee - $25. 

Minimum of 6 students, Maximum of 12 students per class.

One full day workshop 10:00am – 5:00pm with a break for lunch.
