Faculty Profile: Kurt Hollomon
Artist, designer and faculty member Kurt Hollomon gives a tour of observational living through his sketchbooks about being swept into the urban landscape and teaching by example.
Illustration and Drawing Faculty member Kurt Hollomon is back in the classroom after a summer that included teaching in the International Urban Sketchers Symposium held in Portland and hosted by PNCA Continuing Education. For three days, the College’s Pearl District neighborhood became a canvas as participants from around the world did what they do best—observe and sketch the wonder of the day to day. Hollomon is a regular contributor to the Urban Sketchers blog, which features over 100 invited artists from around the world who share a passion for drawing on location.
After the Symposium, Untitled took time to sit down with Hollomon to talk about his work as a teacher, artist and designer and to also take a peek into some of his many, many sketchbooks. Hollomon, who as a teacher says he is often inspired to go in new directions by his students, teaches by example and is never seen without a sketchbook in hand.
