Alternative Drawing Methods: One-Day Workshop Offered in Green Lake

July 5, 2017|Posted in: Green Lake Events

Renowned artist Trina May Smith will share alternative drawing methods with students at a one-day-only workshop from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 22, at the new Art School at Town Square in Green Lake. Registration is limited to 15 people.


Smith is one of Wisconsin’s most prominent artists. Her work has been shown in many group and solo exhibitions across the United States from Central Washington University, to Maine College of the Arts, to the cities of Brooklyn, Chicago and Seattle.

“We are beyond excited to host Trina May Smith at Town Square,” said Jorge Gutierrez of Green Lake Renewal, the non-profit organization that operates the Town Square community center, where the workshop will be held. “The Green Lake area has always been known as a haven for artists, and so we are pleased to have the opportunity to offer this great program.”

Participants will learn three different drawing processes in this workshop. First, they will experiment with the unpredictable but beautiful effects of tempura resists. Next, students will learn to print into setting plaster by scratch-drawing onto plastic and adding printing ink. Lastly, they will learn to use a mono-printing technique after drawing or painting onto plexiglass.

Smith obtained a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from University of Washington and a Master’s of Fine Arts from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She is represented by the Tory Folliard Gallery in Milwaukee and is an assistant professor in painting at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.
