Rupert Workshop

I am having SUCH a great time with the students in my Collage Journeys workshop this week. What a creative bunch! ON Monday we did Scribble Painting, Tuesday we we explored personal text and image relationships as well as composition; on Wednesday we made collages with foam core; and today everyone continued work on their chosen project. Gretchen collaged in a journal she had begun, as did Deborah. Marianne continued with the foam core constructions, while the rest worked on collage / paint compositions. Tomorrow we wrap up with some show and tell and discussion. I have lots more pictures, but here are just a few to give you a flavor of the creativity we all experienced.

Workshop Report

We had a fabulous fabric-paper workshop in Guilford last weekend. Thanks to all who attended and to Guilford Art Center for hosting it. I hope to teach another workshop there next summer. Here are a few pix from the workshop: Susan's mini-quilt in progress - Susan really got into the bead embellishment! - a couple fabric-papers from Cathy, and a few samples that I made.

Here is one of the samples I made for my Fabric-Paper workshop this weekend (detail above, full piece at left). I'm working on a series of geometric vertical compositions using a limited number of fabric-papers. The workshop is at the Guilford Art Center in Guilford, CT. There are still a couple of spaces available. Thanks for all your comments on my painting/collages in the last post!
