Instructor: Jacqueline Bishop
Monday - Friday
Participants will collect discarded materials of their choice that would otherwise end up in a landfill: paper, newspaper, clothes, books, letters, packaging, paper bags, cardboard, furniture pieces, etc. and will transform the discarded objects into art. The class will briefly spend time in the surrounding natural landscape of the studio and focus on what they see and experience and apply this subject matter to the discarded object through painting and drawing. The end results will be to assemble a "landfill installation" for final discussion.
