ANGLES TO ORTHOGONALS
July 10, 2018@10:00 am - July 19, 2018@4:00 pm$265
Linear perspective seems to be everyone’s nemesis, but it doesn’t have to be and it’s so important to have in your skill set. In this class, we tackle it head on; first with simple geometric constructions that need to feel spacial in a drawing and then we move ahead to all manner of single and double-point perspective problems – still lifes, furniture, buildings, even the human figure. Each day begins with morning practice sessions introducing new material and critique; weather permitting, we’ll be outside in the afternoon sun, drawing. Materials will be limited to graphite and ink as they’re so portable. It really isn’t as hard as it seems…a challenge that’s rewarding to master. All are welcome, no experience necessary.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: In her work, Kris Engman explores various subjects, materials and genres as a painter of the Maine landscape. Most recently, she has exhibited at the Arden Gallery in Boston, the Schmidtberger Fine Arts Gallery in Pennsylvania, The Geras Tousignant Gallery in San Francisco and the Courthouse Gallery in Ellsworth. Kris received her MFA from the University of Pennsylvania and her BFA from the Maine College of Art. Although Engman’s artistic focus was as a sculptor for twenty-five years, for more than 15 years, she has painted the Maine landscape and worked from, what she defines as, ‘the ‘simplest of still lifes’. The work is an expression of color and pattern in some sort of balance that feels connected to daily routines and observations. From her Belfast studio, Kris teaches workshops in collaboration with Waterfall Arts in Color Theory at all levels and Basic Drawing. These workshops are run as well through River Arts in Damariscotta and in the Master Series at The Engine in Biddeford. She also teaches drawing, design and painting in the University of Maine Art Department.
