How can we better see and understand the natural world through drawing? In this interactive online workshop, we will combine close sensory observation of our local neighborhood (or indoor!) flora with the act of mindful drawing, working in a range of mediums and easily-accessible techniques.

The course takes place over one day, with two 90-minute sessions separated by a 45-minute break.

Whether you’re an experienced artist or are just starting out, this is an opportunity to create intimate artworks that reflect the rich natural environment that surrounds us, wherever we may be. We will do a number of short studies to strengthen our perception of line, form, structure, and texture, and will synthesize techniques to produce one larger piece. No previous drawing experience is required, just a curiosity about exploring natural forms through sensory observation and markmaking.

This interactive online class is presented via Zoom, and is best experienced on a laptop or computer monitor with a large screen and webcam.

After payment is received, we will send you a zoom link via email. Kits with materials will be ready for pickup prior to class. Scholarships available – email erin@emergentarts.org for information

Sara Schneckloth’s studio practice is motivated by the question of how science, imagination, and the body inform one another through the activity of drawing.

By combining the visual languages of biology, geology, and physics into large-scale, mixed-media, and interactive drawings, she creates images that speak to the physicality of markmaking, the embodiment of memory, and our interpretation of natural systems and phenomena. As it bridges the concerns of traditional illustration, sculpture, and new media, her approach seeks to discover ways in which drawing operates as a site of trans-disciplinary inquiry.

Schneckloth has shown drawings in over seventy exhibitions throughout the US, UK, South Africa, Norway, and France; her essays on drawing and embodiment have appeared in the Journal of Visual Culture, Visual Communications Quarterly, and the Manifest International Drawing Annual. She has facilitated large-scale collaborative drawings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and at universities across the US and UK. She holds an MFA from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, and has lived and worked in Iowa, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, and Cape Town, South Africa.

An Associate Professor in the School of Visual Art and Design at the University of South Carolina, she currently resides in both Columbia, South Carolina and rural New Mexico.
