Maker in Residence: Collage, Contemplation and Conversation

When: Wednesday, March 14, 2018 - 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Where: Library21c at Make (Clean Maker Space)

Maker in Residence Joanna Bolek.
Art requires engagement in our senses…i.e., “Stop and smell the roses.” When introducing collage techniques Joanna encourages class participants to attune themselves to the visual images, colors and shapes that “speak” to them from the materials at hand. (We “hear” best when our minds are relaxed and free of our usual concerns.)
These classes do not require previous art-making experience. All materials will be provided, although, if you have images (from magazines, calendars, copies of photos, etc.) of your own that you want to include, please bring them. This is an opportunity to explore/contemplate a personal sense of being in the context of a group. There will be time to verbally share your experience of the process if you choose to.
The main point is to relax, enjoy and discover while producing a collage that will surprise and delight you.
