Another hostess told us about the amazing classes coming up. I do want a basic class so I know how to manipulate my materials, how to work with various mediums, basic technique. I do worry that a formal class would change my naive style. I do not fear the paint and I worry I would be corralled into a style.


its damn near impossible to corral an artist. for the duration of a class, maybe you will try a new style, but nothing will ever destroy what you have unless you ask it to... i'm the daughter and granddaughter of accomplished painters, both of whom give me "lessons" on a regular basis, and yet my painting is nothing like theirs. My mother cannot help but paint women, in everything she does, my grandfather uses texture, and despite my 3 years of formal training and my schooling from my family, I still paint in values, working almost in gradient maps, even when I TRY to paint in other styles...
lessons are good for us. they teach us how to merge existing styles with our instinctual connection to the medium.


:D go on!get learning!!


i agree with this ... i actually stopped drawing for about 20 years, and am often amazed at how similar my current style is to my former style. i am trying to break it, too!
but, at the same time, learning technique is definitely taking something out of the creativity, which gets a little depressing at times. but i'll have time for that later, when i don't have time for classes. the creativity also disappeared for 20 years, it came back too ... although not quite to the same level ... yet ...
i have been playing with various mediums for some time, while finding my style ... you have to try things, see what works for you. antiM, do you work in oils, or acrylics? i've used both, and may be able to point you to some stuff.... the choices are bewildering, and often very expensive ...

Acrylics. I've used oils and hate the clean-up.

"I do not fear the paint and I worry I would be corralled into a style."


I wouldn't worry about that.

I've found that creating art is like your own handwriting.

It's personal and filtered through your experiences and level of "practice".

Everyone has their own way to express the different letters and stringing the words together to communicate.

The same is true with art.

You can learn different techniques, use different mediums, but your choice of subject matter and your use of color, line and how they are expressed through your emotions is you.

Would it be wrong to tell the newbs it is mandatory to bring a piece of art to the Home? Like a scavenger hunt, and they get to choose a different piece of art as their reward.

Or is that just mean?

So, if my amateur, first-time art installation morphs into complete crap, it can find a home for 6 days at your house?

It wouldn't be for six days, the art at the Home gets adopted by strangers. Permanently. But seriously, I only take smaller pieces. One year I got saddled with a sculpture which we had to smash for transport and toss in the trash back here in Utah. Not every piece of art in the Home finds loving parents. If I can't repurpose, I destroy!!!!

Understood. ;-) I actually thought it was a theme camp at the Burn. My ignorance. However, that would be an interesting camp ...

Mmm, it is a small camp in a village of individual camps (Hushville) which operates an interactive art installation.

You are welcome to drop off any smallish art you have which you'd like to go to a new home. At the very least, stop by and get some new art for yourself.

Isn't size relative? :? How small is "smallish"? Smaller than a mountain? Smaller than a trailer for a semi-truck? Smaller than an atom? Let's get you pinned down on some exact size, and then tempt you to break your own rules! :twisted: :wink:

3-d art such as sculptures... smaller than your head. Creative tins and jewelry are popular.

2-d visual art ... pocket sized for gifting to traveling burners, torso-sized for wall art, and the occasional sofa painting is alright as long as we can fit it in the trailer if no one takes it. Unmounted drawings on paper tend not to get adopted and die inelegant deaths in the art box. MOOPy art is unwelcome.

NO costumes. The t-shirts last year were an anomaly and from our own camp, via Romeo Freakenstein. Thanks RF.

The rule is: if Anti M don't like it for any reason, it ain't going to reside in the Home for Wayward Art. Even if I have to kill it.

Okay, so house-sized, steel structures are right out, then? :wink:

So, small means reasonably portable, and creatively arranged garbage isn't likely to pass inspection. (Actually, I was surprised how little trash I had at the end of the week... with the exception of the disaster which happened inside my large cooler [and that was mostly the surprise discovery that the meal replacement bars used water soluble glue in their packages! :roll: ])

Thanks!

Zip-lock bags are your friends when it comes to coolers. Everything in zipper bags!

The Home does acquire trash, we even rope it off at night now. Just a visual barrier, but slows down the beer-drinking at our tiny table. I wouldn't mind, but there are always bottles and spilled beer and trash, even a used condom once. Euw.

I have a bag for clips, and if I forget and leave it hanging out, people use it as a trash bag. Grrr.

Last year I had a guy up on the table, wiring his used costume pieces to the upper support; a clown wig, a ratty skirt and a parasol. I made him cut the wires and take his trash away with him. Dolt, no one would want such trashed things and no one could easily remove them anyway. Had I not wandered out, I would have had to take his trash home with him. The Home is for ART, not leftovers you don't feel like hauling away.

Okay, let's see if I got this right... if your name is Art, and you've lost your way on the Playa it's okay to crash and AntiM's? :roll:

Seriously (okay, maybe not seriously), wouldn't it be better to call it "AntiM's Half-Way House for Wayward Art" or; "AntiM's Recycled Treasures" (better known as A.R.T.)? :)

Ah, but much of the art is original pieces. And I can't change the name now, it is an institution.

LOL.

Art Rehab. Anyone have a "T"?

And Art could crash at our camp if he asked nicely and left no trace. And didn't rummage through our things.

NOW you tell me! :lol:

Yeah, used condoms are pretty disgusting. Unfortunately, with my job I wind up dealing with them regularly even when they are disposed of properly... :roll: (Remember, when dealing with trash, gloves are your friends!)

TRANSITORIUM (Is that a word)?

Turnstile? Throughway? Terminal? Tent?

I really prefer tortilla, but that doesn't make much sense. :oops:
