 Shake up your studio practice by tapping into new or dormant ideas in this messy, no-holds-barred, experimental, mixed media class. We’ll examine how fresh media approaches, including accident and chance, can be used as strategies for propelling your work. You’ll expand on current themes and discover how stepping out of your comfort zone can help you realize new ones. Various approaches may combine the following: image transfer, painting, drawing, digital processes with smartphone apps, and collage.

Deborah Dancy is a multimedia artist. Her paintings, drawings, digital photography and small sculptures examine the shifting intersection between abstraction and representation. In this slippery and indeterminate territory, her work operates in the recognition that everyday moments, meandering, and observations can be both beautiful and unnerving. Dancy has been Guggenheim Fellow, a Yaddo Fellow, and a National Endowment of the Arts NEFA awardee. Her work is in numerous collections including: The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Birmingham Museum of Art; The Hunter Museum and The Detroit Institute of Art. She is represented by Sears Peyton Gallery, NYC and N’Namdi Contemporary, Miami.
