Art & Consciousness Workshops
Inner Fields is now offering a variety of art workshops for both kids and adults which explore consciousness and ecology through process, collaboration, experimentation and play. All workshops are taught by Elaine Su-Hui and take place in the Inner Fields studio in Prospect Heights (Vanderbilt & Dean St). From beginners and non-artists to professionals with already developed art practices, each class is tailored to meet each individual's creative needs.
Elaine Su-Hui has worked as the Senior Printer for the artist Swoon for the past 6 years. As an artist she has been the recipient of the SIP Fellowship at the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop in New York, the Ian Potter Cultural Trust grant for an artist residency at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, California, the Collie Print Trust Scholarship at the Australian Print Workshop in Melbourne, Australia, the Arts Law Centre of Australia Print Commission, and the Silk Cut Award Acquisitive Prize. She has exhibited her work in the United States, Europe and Australia. She teaches printmaking as an extension of drawing with an emphasis on experimentation and chance, exploring the most expressive possibilities of the printmaking process with a contemplative approach. To see some of her work, visit www.innerfieldsnyc.org/gallery

Learn the process of translating your ideas into block prints, including drawing and carving a linoleum block, basic methods for registering multiple colors, experimenting with mark-making, and the simplicity and elegance of printing by hand - all from a contemplative approach. Discover how the creative process can reflect and inform your overall approach to life, and how working with your hands provides an essential, restorative break from our technology-oriented world.
