October 4-7, 2017
I am pleased to announce that I will be teaching a mark making workshop, entitled Permission to Play, at Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch's OPENstudio in Lexington, Kentucky October 4-7, 2017.
Play and experimentation are vital ingredients in a successful studio practice. So is asking and answering the question, “What if….?”
In Permission to Play, we will engage in focused, thoughtful play and experimentation with a variety of mark making techniques that will aide each student in discovering their own unique mark. We will participate in mark making exercises on paper and cloth designed to allow and encourage students to recognize and intuitively follow inspiration as it occurs. It will be a time to try new techniques and materials, get messy, make mistakes, repeat or move on without fear.
Bring your sense of adventure and those materials and/or techniques that you’ve been yearning to try. The sole rule of the class is that if you even think what if…?, you must follow through and find the answer.
