*Requires an assortment of rocks, stones, minerals provided by the student. Look for specimens with a variety of banding, color, and texture.

This interactive 3 hour workshop combines close sensory observation of geological specimens with the act of mindful drawing. We will work in a range of wet and dry mediums and easily-accessible techniques, exploring each stone’s structure, texture, and color in close and intricate detail.

The course takes place over 3 hours with a short break in the middle.

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. We will do a number of short studies to strengthen 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 geological forms through sensory observation and engaged 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.
