Event Description:

Art that’s gratifying to make and behold often jumps the fence between genres. In this two-day workshop, paint images in language and draw pictures from words. Willy-nilly sketching and drafting will complement experiments with attractive page design. We will take short rambles on foot and spend time in the studio, creating illuminated notebook pages that vibrate with visual and verbal ideas. Work in whatever easily portable medium you choose to bring: graphite pencil, colored pencil, pen and ink, watercolor, markers or a combination.
