Acclaimed artist Jennifer Thomson is hosting an art retreat this August in Crestone. Her art displays a spiritual connection to nature, interweaving colors with the “aliveness” of nature. Students will be guided to find their own voice and style through art. Lessons will be both indoors and outdoors from morning to afternoon with lively talks in the evenings, a chance to connect with others, and time to enjoy the beauty of Crestone in the late summer.
Mornings: We will develop form and motif “out of the colors”, an approach inspired by Goethe and Steiner that perceives colors as the visible outer garments of invisible forces and beings. Students will create a large veil painting watercolor during the 5 mornings, inspired by a given color exercise.
Afternoons: One afternoon sketching in nature. Develop landscape sketches into abstract paintings. In the studio, explore painting exercises inspired by O’Keeffe’s compositional space and form art. Materials used in the workshop: watercolor, gouache, ink, charcoal & colored pencils.
It is a quiet inner period of time to gather your forces. Many have come who are on a threshold of their life, whether in health, life change, death-related, or to renew their art experience.
Evening presentations: Georgia O’Keeffe characterization by Jennifer Thomson and Anthroposopy & Today’s Health by Philip Incao.
August 9th, 7pm: Ammi & Jennifer will explore their characters through impersonation and showing slides of O’Keeffe’s art. Elephant Cloud studio. Open to the public and free.
