Friday, June 26th:Visual Poetry 11:30-6
The Painted Book: An Exploration in Layers 6:30-8:30
Visual PoetryIn this unique all day (six hour) workshop, you will create a lavishly layered book full of color, paper, text, paint, stencils and everything with which we can get our hands dirty with. We'll combine all new layers of collage, color, text and images onto the pages. We’ll learn how to push, pull and rework the pages, digging deep and discovering new visual delights on each and every page. This is the class you have been waiting for.Supply list: scissors, a selection of favorite collage ephemera, bone folder, cork back metal ruler, roll of waxed paper, roll of paper towels, permanent black ink pad (if you have one), 1" brush to glue (I like chip or bristle brushes), a few of your favorite glue sticks (large glue sticks will last you longer), an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don't want to use all of your waxed paper for this.) Feel free to bring a small handful of your favorite colors of acrylics, paint pens and markers if you'd like though I will have several for you to use.
