The statements, ‘You cannot make it up’ and ‘You must make it up’ are both true. We must let both guide us. What we put down on our paper are real things that we can adjust just as we adjust objects in a still life. Working from the model and with the most elementary of tools; a ballpoint pen, acrylic paint, white glue, copy paper, cardboard and masking tape along with a home copier and scanner we will draw, paint, collage, sculpt and print. Rather than always working from a blank page, participants frequently use collage to rework directly on prints of our previous designs. All on a path away from copying and rendering towards a more exciting and ultimately more real picture of what we find beautiful in the world.

Ken Kewley graduated from the College of Creative Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He was a night watchman at the Metropolitan Museum of Art 1980-1990 and considers this a major part of his education.  In New York his work has been exhibited at Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects, Lori Bookstein Fine Art and Pavel Zoubok. He teaches workshops and lectures at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Hollins University, University of Arkansas, National Academy of Design, and the Jerusalem Studio School, including the Italian Summer Program. His work has been reviewed in the New York Times, New York Sun, ARTnews, and the New York Observer and included in many private and public collections.
