Instructor: M P Landis
June 25 - 29
Monday - Friday
1 - 4pm
This process-oriented workshop is open to anyone interested in pushing through creative blocks or ruts, or who simply needs a good jumpstart. The course is taught through visual means, but is open to those in all creative fields, veteran and novice alike. We will explore many ways of incorporating our experiences and the world around us to awaken our creativity and push through our fears and judgments. There will be in- and out-of-class assignments utilizing drawing, painting and collage, along with other exercises such as collaboration and chance operations. These activities will be balanced with individual conferences exploring your own projects and/or goals.
