We make art to wake up ourselves, our colleagues, the world. As rigorous as any inner-oriented discipline, visual art reflects the maker’s life philosophy, personal temperament, and aspirations.
Teaching is the job of leading students to make connections, between their life stories and the greater world, to guide their research in both learning physical processes and mining their personal experiences.
As a teacher I aim for several fits: the match of medium to the individual’s skills, temperament, and goals; integrating material and message; understanding one’s nature and place on the continuum between spontaneity and control; and the balance between the intuitive impulse and its physical manifestation.
My class plans are structured to provide the framework necessary to acquiring technical skills and tools that allow students to experiment with confidence. I also emphasize the need to articulate one’s intentions through written exercises.
Upcoming Workshops with Jane Goldman
Glow with the Flow: Watercolor Monotype
Do you love the translucence and flowing marks of watercolor, the surprises and freshness of printmaking?
Explore these aspects of this water-based medium and more as you print with watercolor on plexiglas for an exciting combination of luminosity and complex color layering.
Watercolor monotypes are just like other monotypes in as much as they produce single, unique images. However, the image is made with watercolors painted on plexiglas. The artist can manipulate wet pigment washes, wipe them away, use stencils etc. during the drawing process.
We will review elements of working with watercolor, make “one-pass” through the press prints, ghost prints and multi-layered images. While the focus of this workshop is monotype, you can bring your previously created matrices (woodcuts, linocuts, etchings) to combine with watercolor layers.
