Title: FINDING FORM: ROBERLEY BELL
Date & Time: July 9, 2:00pm – July 15, 9:00am
Location: Monson Maine
Registration link: monsonarts.org/workshops
Technical and material skill is not required this is a beginning to advance course.
The aim of the workshop is to expose students both beginning and advance to a wide range of materials and processes for finding form three dimensionally. Students will be introduced to methods of drawing that provide for the investigation of form. These form studies will then be used to translate from 2d to 3d. Students will explore processes for quickly massing or sketching form in a non-permanent material (paper and tape, hot glue and wood, assembled found objects). From the early sketch stage students will go on to complete a finished 3-dimensional form in an appropriate material.
Students should come with basic drawing material a sketch pad, soft pencils, charcoal what ever they like to draw with, more is better. If possible they should bring a measuring device tape or ruler, an ugly knife and basic paster or clay molding tools.

Monson ArtsMonson Arts is a residency and workshop program in Monson, Maine. An initiative of Maine’s Libra Foundation, Monson Arts began programming in 2018. It was started as a way to spur economic development in Piscataquis County. Monson, the last town before the 100 Mile Wilderness on the Appalachian Trail, was the home of photographer Berenice Abbott, painter Carl Sprinchorn, and was a center for slate quarrying and furniture making. Monson Arts’ mission is to provide time and space for creative work. This is done through a combination of residencies, workshops, community/school programs and initiatives, and exhibitions. 8 Greenville Rd. Monson, Maine
