Personal Geographies: Mapping Your Life

Humans have been making maps for thousands of years: it is an urge some of us can’t resist. Using collage, illustration, journaling, paint, paper and other mixed media, you will create "maps" of your life experience, based on historical models. These maps of the imagination can record our journeys of the past, future, backyards, hopes, dreams, and mythological places. In this workshop, you will make six maps and an Atlas case to contain them, and discuss the historical and contemporary treatments of maps and mapmaking.
