This is a hands-on intensive workshop about aesthetics through the lens of the culinary arts, particularly soup.We will build aesthetic strategies to describe what is often thought to be indescribable by entering the realm of non-linguistic thought. To begin, we will engagingly abstract up and down three iconic soups then we will taste our way through the major creative linkage strategies best exemplified in others. Ultimately we will explore a system of sketches and layers of color to build a classic matzo ball soup then finish by applying aesthetic principles to decoding the most complex of all Ukranian Borsch. The workshop will be peppered with the ideas of Hans Hoffman, Wassily Kandinsky, and Leonard Koren. Connections between modern culinary and great traditions like abstract expression will be revealed and the creation of food & soup artifacts will be seen as the new painting. Dinner out will be planned at a local restaurant after class. Tuition does not cover dinner price.

In Art School 99 Paint and Ideas Mix Well
COME ON IN!
About the Founder
Alexandra Rozenman's career has taken her from the Soviet underground to a prominent place in the American art world. Born in Moscow, she found her footing alongside now-famous dissident artists before political pressures brought her to the United States as a refugee in the late 1980s. From that point on, her multilayered, often mysterious paintings have only gained momentum, taking her from an MFA at the School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts to international exhibitions—to a fellowship with the MacDowell Colony, an illustrious group of bohemians whose members have included James Baldwin and Michael Chabon. Rozenman ia a frequent speaker at many art blogs.
Through her personal experiences, having risked everything to follow her own muse, Rozenman knows how important self-expression is to every person. Accordingly at Art School 99 she works to provide students with the technical skills and supportive environment they need to bring their visions to life. Classes might incorporate readings, movies, or collage techniques, and cultivate salon-style inspiration with wine or Russian tea.
