LORI SOKOLUK: Making Your Mark

Explore possibilities and expand your repertoire! Learn the wide range of expression you can get with a single mark, and increase your ability to convey meaning in your artwork. With Lori’s guidance, you will experiment with different tools and media to discovery an amazing range of mark-making options.

Each day will start with gathering natural materials to use in playful experimentation back at the studio. Exploration, discussion, and a series of exercises designed to stretch your comfort zone will be conducted in a friendly, supportive atmosphere where your creativity can unfold. We will use acrylic paint and drawing media on paper.

The focus of this workshop is building your confidence connecting with your creativity and intuition, composition and design, and conveying emotion or ideas through visual art work. No experience required. Bring your enthusiasm and willingness to try new approaches.

Course Fee: $280  Supply Fee: $30  Tuition includes lunches and two snacks. Prices are inclusive of all applicable taxes.

 Lori Sokoluk’s bold organic abstracts and loose evocative realism capture just enough detail to launch the mind and heart. Mark-making and a personal vocabulary of images are central to Lori’s recent work, which is inspired by ports, patina, and aging industrial edges of our cities. Intention and intuition play equally important roles in Lori’s creative process. Paint, collage, and various mixed media layer to build a sense of detail in these abstract works. Intuition guides, and discernment hones the finished pieces.

Lori’s enthusiasm and work have been inspiring art students for almost two decades. Lori studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. She has taught at the Boston Architectural Centre and Massachusetts College of Art, and continues to teach throughout the Lower Mainland and the United States.
