NEW SUMMER COLONY WORKSHOP

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.

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