Expressive Collage and Painting at Omega

As you may know, I am teaching at the Omega Institute this fall, September 22 - 27.  The workshop is called Expressive Collage, and you can find the description here.  This will be like an extended version of Scribble Collage, the topic of my DVD:  we'll start by creating our own collage papers, then use those to make compositions in collage and paint.  I emphasize focusing on process, and working in series, as well as developing personal approaches to art making.

This is my first attempt at a video with voice-over (rather than talking as I shoot, as I do in my demo videos), but I hope it gets the point across.

Omega is in the Hudson Valley, in Upstate New York, and has a beautiful campus, with a lake and hiking trails. There are yoga classes open to all, and serene places to meditate or have some quiet time.  This will be a true retreat!

Put yourself on my mailing list (it's under "subscribe to" and above "Blick Art Materials" over in the right margin: "Join Our Mailing List".

  5. Your voice over was perfect! You captured just about every studio emotion in picture and voice - and it makes a huge impression. I know the workshop will be a rewarding experience for students and teacher, and that's the way it should be.
