"Finding The Soul of Forgotten Materials"
October 4-7, 2018
 

Experiment with innovative and intuitive ways of creating a variety of structures and forms using organic, found and recycled materials. During this workshop students are invited to think about shapes and forms that hold particular interest and bring these ideas to the workshop. We will look at alternative construction methods using wire, screws and basic woodworking techniques to assemble our forms and we will also learn how to sculpt and shape carving foam, which is the armature for each sculpture.

"Nihonga: Then And Now"
November 12-16, 2018
 

In this course students will reinterpret nature’s deep imagery and essence employing matter from nature itself, within a limited palette. Paint, ink and home-made gesso will be made from inorganic and organic sources including pine soot, shells and earth minerals. Natural metallics will be introduced for warmth and depth. These arcane processes have been employed for thousands of years on cave walls, screens and scrolls, and aboriginal works. A variety of drawing, painting and collage techniques will be covered to cultivate individualized expression. This meaningful, process-driven, ecological (non-toxic, water-based) work truly nurtures the heart and spirit.
