WINTERING WELL / 6-week program
How can drawing help us prepare for the winter?
Winter is the season of necessary retreat and recovery, where we hibernate into our corners and nests. Drawing can be the perfect companion to this season of reflection and folding into our reserves. After summer’s harvest, we squirrel things away for this darker, quieter time. Drawings can act as a method of preserving, bottling, salting; drawings keep something for later. The language of drawing gives us the perfect vocabulary to describe this time of shadows and darkened tones, and the heat of fires lit against the darkness and cold. Wintertime has a simplified muddier palette to enjoy. As trees lose their leaves our drawn lines describe their skeletons and the bare bones of the season. And as the season’s darkness deepens, we are rewarded by its sparkle, the things we light against the dark, fireworks, candles, tinsel, and the magic of first frosts.
