About The Class

Instructor: Evan Crankshaw

Medium: Drawing

Workshop Title: Exploring Concepts Through Experimental Drawing Practices

Drawing is a radical act of creation and interpretation, with the potential to be among the most immediate and expressive of the arts.  Employing experimental drawing techniques, interpretation and re-drawing strategies, and surrealist visual games, you will pursue the goal of arriving at genuinely unexpected kinds of images. Through these activities, you will seek a deeper truth or push the boundaries of your craft. Open to all.

Evan Crankshaw's work focuses on the many manifestations of exoticism, employing experimental techniques in drawing, collage, film, and music to disrupt, critique, or analyze aspects of exoticist discourse. He recently published a book of collages, entitled Expedition. He also hosts a weekly radio program, "Explorers Room," on WFMU's Give the Drummer Radio, exploring musical manifestations of exotica and the avant-garde, particularly where they overlap.  He currently resides in Bahama, North Carolina.
