Storytelling with Collage
June 11-16, 2017 — Travel to Vieux Québec with the talented Roxanne Evans Stout, a distinguished collage artist and creative storyteller. She’ll share with us new and exciting ways to capture inspiration from nature, people and our surroundings – new ways to immerse ourselves in the heart and soul of a new culture. In between demos and techniques, we’ll take to the city and explore. We’ll let the splendor of Vieux Québec wash over us, and seep into our spirits, to later trickle out through our brushstrokes, scissor snips, and paper-folding. If spectacular textures and handmade papers, vibrant colors and non-traditional tools inspire you to create, welcome to the world of storytelling through collage. Come and discover with us!
