Lindsey Oberg

I am a mixed media encaustic painter. I combine old objects that are reminiscent of the past with my own personal history as a way for me to imagine back and have second chance or alternate experiences in life.  At the same time, this allows me to give a new life and a new story to each and every object that I use.  Each piece already has a history, already had a life, and reflecting back on that inspires my art.  I think about who might have owned it, or where it might have been, traveling back in time and ending with the object being given a whole new meaning and significance-- these forgotten memories that may have sat in drawers neglected for decades, now transformed and revitalized. 

The Figure In Pastel: Fall/Winter 2014-15 Courses

This course teaches a technique that was developed by world renown artists and illustrators. The basis of the technique teaches students to see the figure as a whole. Mapping the whole figure first, students will be guided to develop the figure with different pastel techniques. Students will also learn to work quickly. Quick drawing exercises strengthen hand eye coordination, the most important skill for drawing more lifelike figures. In the course we will start with quick drawings and finish with one hour or longer drawings. You will be amazed at the improvement in your drawing skills after taking this course! Choose from two courses below:
