Backstage Pass

Let’s pull back the curtain to see what happens backstage. In this 2-day workshop we will discuss and discover the process of creating art and how your visual journal can play a supporting role. You will create a 6†x 8†assemblage while working simultaneously in your journal with sketches, notes, dashes of paint, and remnants from your piece. Visual journals can take on many forms. ­Use it to flesh out ideas, document process, and collect evidence as you work on a piece, so it is not only a valuable resource but becomes a tool that may inform future work. The connection between your journal and your piece of art is like getting to see the deleted scenes, or extra footage from a movie. Your assemblage may steal the spotlight, but your journal is the real star.
