“Taking a Leap”

Nothing compares to the joy of creating personally resonant work.  All it requires is taking a leap of faith from expectation into unfamiliar territory.  The payoff is tremendous because, in the course, your work will be unequivocally yours.

Organized as a directed residency, the focus of this transformative course revolves around developing and refining a skilled, intuitive and uniquely individual approach to making and using powders and sheet glass.  We’ll begin with relaxed mark making exercises and move quickly reductive powder work.  Simple black and white powder studies encourage increasingly sophisticated work and culminate in independent multi-layered monochromatic and color projects. Particular attention will be given to building thoughtful, dimensional and cohesive projects.  Relevant experimentation with materials and strategies for invention will be encouraged and the creative process of moving from idea to concept sketches toward final resolution will be stressed.

Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced levels welcome!
