Collage Journeys in Vermont August 16 – 20, 2010

Join me for a four-day adventure in collage and mixed media at my studio in beautiful rural Rupert, Vermont.

Workshop Description
This workshop, based on my books “Collage Journeys” and “Adventures in Mixed Media” (forthcoming), will take you on a journey exploring diverse avenues for tapping into your creative wellspring of ideas and images. You will draw and paint with abandon, tearing up the results to make beautiful collage compositions, learn techniques for using foam core as a dimensional substrate for collage, discover the evocative possibilities of text and images relationships, develop personal visual and iconographic vocabularies, and much more. You will come away from this workshop with

* Greater confidence in your expressive capabilities
* New skills and techniques for creating meaningful art
* A sense of your own creative potential through collage and mixed media
* A set of practices for keeping your creative skills honed
* Several finished projects

We will take some time for projects of individual interest, and the studio is open 24 hours for your use. Some materials will be provided, though I will provide a supply list as well.

Housing and Meals
You will be accommodated in a beautifully renovated guest house, which is conveniently located next door to my studio. It has full kitchen facilities and two full baths, a wrap around porch, a barbeque, and water frontage (a stream runs along the back side of my studio and the guest house).

I will stock the guest house with breakfast materials (locally made bread, fresh local eggs, milk, coffee, cereals, juice, etc.), and lunch will be brought in each day, Monday – Friday. You are on your own for dinner, and I can direct you to grocery stores and restaurants. There is a general store two miles down the road which has a deli.

Cost: $675, includes tuition, accommodations, breakfast, and lunch.
Call or e-mail me to request more information and a registration form. Deposits due June 15.
