The Art of Expressive Freedom in Mixed-media and Collage

with Artist, Crystal Neubauer

January 19-21, 2018

We often come to the table with the expectation that there is a right and a wrong way to approach the canvas and fully expect that in every art medium there is a potential for a good or bad outcome based on how skilled we are at following the rules. The idea of letting go of control is intimidating, especially when using precious found materials and investing in expensive art supplies.

Whether you are an experienced artist, or a novice, this workshop will dare you to let go of expectations and ignore the rules through exercises designed to infuse freedom into your creativity. We will begin the workshop scavenging the grounds around the studio for material to create our own mark-making tools. We will then explore a variety of mixed-media activities using paint, pastels, traditional drawing and mark-making tools, and collage. With new-found confidence in your own artistic voice, the class will culminate in a final project with a focus on mixed-media collage.

Friday, January 19 - 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
5:15 pm - 6:45 pm Private reception with Artist
Saturday & Sunday, January 20-21 - 9:30 am - 4 pm

ARTIST BIO:
Crystal Neubauer is a Mixed Media Artist drawn to the broken, cast out, and overlooked items of the past. She sees beauty in the mundane, brings new life to forgotten objects, and finds the process of salvaging old materials and creating new art to be therapeutic and healing. As her work evolves, a more complete understanding of why she does what she does and chooses to use materials that others see as trash comes to light:

It's about seeing something beautiful in the discarded

About giving new life to what has been broken and cast out

It's about seeing worth in what has been deemed worthless

And value in the valueless

Ultimately it's about humanity

And redemption

And love

:: ANCESTORS :: with Erin Faith Allen

February 10-11, 2018

When we spend time cultivating awareness and understanding of our ancestors, our entire world shifts in indescribable ways.  In this workshop, Erin Faith Allen will share a few tricks for bringing your ancestors into your creative process.  It is not necessary to work directly with your own bloodline for the purposes of this workshop.

Erin will share mixed media techniques, and guide you throughout your process. This workshop is conceptually based, as Erin does not guide workshops on technique alone, nor does she teach you to make art that looks like hers.  You can count on Erin to guide the workshop with an open heart and high intention to hold a space for you to find your unique, authentic expression.

Erin’s workshops are always filled with spectacular people, coupled with a safe, warm, and freeing environment where you get to bring all that you *truly* are and watch magic unfold from your own fingertips.

Artist Bio:

Moving through the world with a rare form of synesthesia, I experience life on a supernatural level.  Making art helps me process my existence with it’s richly cascading and intertwining sounds, textures, and colors.

My muse is intrinsic in my frequent travel to Western Europe and the battlefields, cities rebuilt, and places that wear the tragic histories of the Second World War.

Additionally, I am inspired by my ancestors and my quest to undertake their stories.

I incorporate mythology, symbolism, abstract markings, found image, and figures with multiple layers of mixed media technique and materials to express my perception of the world … sometimes light and delicate, sometimes overwhelming and intense.

Since art school in NYC in the late 1990's, I have experimented with alternative processes such as staining and distressing photographs and substrates with items found around the home and my local hardware store, scratching and burning, and image transfers with multiple media.  After completing a few semesters in a fashion design program, I fell deeply in love with the art of stitching and sewing as part of my expressive process.

My art carries themes of war, the spectrum of human nature, ancestral lineage, mothering, collective female experience, traumatic memory, and the choice each day presents:  do we exist solely within our personal tragedies or do we weave life from a place of empowered wisdom?

In my artwork lies the dance between these choices. The spectrum of living includes both.

We must know our depths to know our heights: we must howl in wild stark exposure at the moon in order to know true bliss in the glow of sun.

I teach mixed media art workshops and organize artist retreats in international locations.

My book, The Underneath:  A Visual Memoir was released in 2016.
