Contemporary Mixed Media

Joan Fullerton | July 16–19, 2018 | $1025

Join us for inspiring demonstrations, lectures, encouragement and practice. You'll learn how to coax hints of reality from an abstract background, how to integrate collage imagery, how to control values and colors for emotional emphasis, and how to suggest rather than delineate. You'll explore working intuitively, responding to what shows up, working in a series, mixing and utilizing neutrals for softer, more ethereal abstracts.

We'll touch on notions of confidence, procrastination, vulnerability, curiosity, courage, talent, play, inspiration, intuition, your mean critic, metaphor, symbolic elements, competition, marketing, your belief systems, finding balance, and more! There will be plenty of time for "playing" and creating along with individual attention and guidance.


The Magic of Surrealism

Libby Caldwell | July 16–19, 2018 | $1025

Take an experiential journey using many ideas for image making that are inspired by Surrealism, with a focus on the work of Max Ernst who lived in Sedona from 1946 -1953. It's all about freeing up the imagination, moving towards the spontaneous play that adults have often forgotten. Process is the key to finding the randomness that maybe isn?t so random. We start by making a book that will be used throughout this 4 day Surrealist workshop. Sedona was a place of inspiration for Max Ernst, and will become so for students as we engage in artistic play using a wide variety of techniques designed to engage both our conscious, and sub-conscious mind including:

Automatism, Collage, Decalcomania , Eclaboussure, Frottage, Grattage, Photomontage, Soufflage
