MARIE HOWE AND MARK ADAMS: Receptivity and the Living World/Word
June 12 - June 13, 2010
We want to dedicate this weekend to cultivating the art of being present in a journey through the specific world of Provincetown's dunes, forest and beaches, bringing together the arts of writing and drawing in response to the natural world. You do not need to know how to draw and you don't need to be an experienced poet to come along on this journey—you only need to want to walk through the forest, the sand and maybe a little bit of water, and be receptive to new possibilities. We'll write in relation to what we hear and touch and smell and taste and see. We'll learn drawing techniques adapted to outdoor field settings (such as blind contour and gesture drawings, drawing with ink and brush, and watercolor wash drawing), keeping a journal for sketches and writing.
