Collage and the Intuitive Voice: A Collage and Writing Collaboration

with Crystal Neubauer

March 13-15, 2020

$600

 

“We often come to the table with the expectation that there is a right way and a wrong way to approach the canvas and fully expect that in every art medium there is the 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. We see the work of others online and in magazines, and think about the technical skill involved in producing that work of art and, if we have never had formal art training, immediately disqualify ourselves from being able to create something we feel emotionally connected to.” ~Crystal Neubauer, The Art of Expressive Collage

 

How do we develop our own style as an artist? How do we create work that speaks to the viewer, with a clearer understanding of what it is we want it to say ourselves? Is there really a right way and a wrong way to create good work? How do we combine all of the ideas and techniques we’ve learned over the years to create a cohesive body of work that is uniquely our own? These are just a few of the questions we’ll tackle in this workshop. Utilizing exercises in both the written word, and through the visual prompts we’ll discover through the art of collage, students will begin to identify their own unique style, while harnessing the power of owning their stories, whether explicitly written or through more subtle visual cues.

*Journaling exercises are a part of this workshop, however you will not be asked to share what you’ve written. Students can expect to leave the workshop with a number of finished collage works in multiple sizes that will be suitable for framing.

Artist's 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

"The French Paper Series"

a Mixed Media class with Caterina Giglio

August 22-23, 2020

$350

 

Take a leap across time to explore the world of crumbling splendor illustrated in mixed media. The French Paper Series celebrates the beauty of the old world.

Our time together will be about telling stories with a wide array of products and techniques to create mystery and narratives. Sewing, mark making, texturizing, and image manipulations will all be examined.

The workshop will be broken into two parts over two days and contain multiple techniques to build the layers of our stories. Our results will culminate in two cradled boards that reflect our own personal stories, our talismans for future travel both inward and outward.

Artist's Bio:

Caterina was born with a pencil in her hand, or so her father used to say. She became a professional artist as a teen and left art to attend a career in retail management and merchandising. On her 50th birthday she decided to return to art and was invited to show with Lydia Garcia in Taos, New Mexico.

Mixing media is a passion for Caterina, who loves to collect antique ephemera and scraps to create narratives about relationship. She has a love of worn, foxed, pages and delights in texture and layers. Her abstracts have been described as tender, romantic and atmospheric. She has a history of fine art mediums, including acrylic painting, watercolor, pen and ink and colored pencil.

Caterina is a nationally recognized artist with over 40 publications, including magazines and books. She is currently concentrating on mixed media paintings, book arts, and assemblage. Cat as she is called is exclusively represented by EsScentuals/142bis Gallerie in Fort Collins, Colorado. She has been a YouTube creator for over 3 years, sharing her knowledge and techniques. She resides and maintains her studio on the Nature Coast in Florida.

Tinker, Tailor, Mischief Maker

Mixed Media Sculpture and Assemblage

with Lindy Trenholm

October 9-11, 2020

$485

 

In a world focused on perfection, we will playfully experiment and repurpose our materials, embracing all that is odd, curious and peculiar to create the whimsically imperfect Mischief Makers.

Discover the intuitive design of narrative sculptures. Take them from ideas and sketches on paper to multi-dimensional tangible forms.

Learn to engage constructive tailoring skills, using needle and thread to artfully connect fabric and disparate materials.

Form and re-fabricate metal bits and found objects, tinkering with a variety of familiar hand tools.

Brainstorm, day dream, and enjoy making mischief - one layer at a time!

 

Artist Bio:

My love of artful expression began with a box of crayons. I’m guessing I was three years old. I would stretch out on my tummy on the floor, next to my big brother Bobby, and zone out filling sheets of newsprint with circles, dots and lines of color. The aroma of fresh wax paired with neat rows of little pointed caps of color popping out of the box sparked hours of creativity. The answer to the oft asked question “What do you want to be when you grow up” never changed: I was an artist.

Over the years, the mediums I use have varied. I began my studies at the Columbus College of Art and Design, as an illustrator with the intent to illustrate children's books, but my elective choices in fine arts, was where my intuitive sense began to blossom. I dabbled in stained glass, ceramics and metal-smithing. My drawings varied from realistic to whimsical. In my late twenties, I discovered the world of creative visual display and it became a bridge for me to combine work and art.

Ten, plus years ago, a journey to a workshop in Southern France, introduced me to the world of book arts and where I found a comfortable niche in what is called mixed media. Using or making books as a platform to build upon still tics all the boxes for me. Mixed media nurtures the inclination to gather and collect found objects, hoard paper of every sort and discover multiple mark making tools. Most of all, it fosters the possibility to respond intuitively to the page. 

Teaching workshops to motivate the artist in us all, feeds my drive to experiment and explore new art techniques. I keep my visual skills honed still freelancing now and then for luxury retail. And to prevent becoming a complete and total recluse, I make it a point to attend art workshops a few times a year.
