Introductions: Civita di Bagnoregio

 

 

 

Let yourself begin anew. Pack your bags. Choose carefully what you bring, because packing is an important ritual. Take along some humility and lessons of the past. Toss in some curiosity and excitement about what you haven’t yet learned. Say your good-byes to those you’re leaving behind. Don’t worry whom you will meet or where you will go. The way has been prepared. The people you are to meet will be expecting you. A new journey has begun. Let it be magical. Let it unfold.—Melody Beattie, Journey to the Heart

When introducing students to Civita since 2013,  there is a many tale I would love to share. However, like every good teacher, I share a bit, tell them ‘come this way’ and simply discover this magical and sensational place, Civita.   ‘ Let it unfold.’

Once again I am offering two sessions:

Session 1: September 24 – 30, 2019 + Session 2: October 2 – 8, 2019

Each session will begin by observing the contextual environment of Civita di Bagnoregio and its surrounding context: learning about the ‘power of a place’ through drawing; mark making inspired by Civita’s extraordinary setting and the beauty of Italy.

+ here’s a tip about what to bring. OK. Maybe a bit more required….

While traveling and sketching outside of studio, I have found these ten essentials so very helpful:

1. Soft pencil, HB recommended. Or a black fountain pen, such as a Lamy.

2. Thin eraser, used for drawing, typically. used for negative space, not errors.

3. Sun hat and sunglasses.

4. Small tripod travel stool, one can select a perfect spot anywhere.

5. Soft paper, 9” x 12” minimum, format horizontal, vertical or square.

6. Time (20 minute minimum).

7. (good) Attitude.

8. Right brain thinking.

9. Confidence.

10. Intent.

And, I found these two videos. Just the beginning, yes? ‘ Pack your bags.’
