Instructor: MP Landis
Monday - Friday
August 26 - 30
9am - 12pm
This process-oriented workshop is open to anyone interested in pushing through creative blocks or ruts, or who just 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. You will leave the workshop with a portfolio of works on paper that you can always come back to for future reference and inspiration.
Bring paper, glue or glue stick, drawing instruments, a bottle of ink and anything else you want to play with.
