CREATIVE FIELD JOURNAL
June 11th through the 15th/ 2pm - 4pm

Ages: 8 - 14

Friday @ 4pm - Parent showcase

basic book-binding and self-exploration

With a great focus on recycling, we will create field journals and a variety of self portraits during this workshop. Using old milk boxes, magazines and photographs we create collages; by altering the same photograph of ourselves many times we can see how different we are in distinct moments; when finding materials outdoors on a nature walk we understand that we are more than just our face and our body, we are what surrounds us, our community, as well. The first day we will build and bind our field journal and the following days we will have activities to create in or paste into the journals so that when the week is finished, each artist will have something to carry home with them and to continue elaborating over time. This is a creative and helpful tool for brainstorming, to remember happy times as well as difficult emotions, and one that serves all ages.

The purpose of these workshops is not only to create a finished piece of art, but to enjoy the process of creation as well as to explore different personal emotions and feelings that we experience in reaction to the world around us. They are designed to create awareness of our environment as well as to help us establish a strong sense of self.

With a focus on reusable and recycled materials, there is an emphasis on the fact that art is everywhere and for everyone. By highlighting the beauty in common items and pointing out different uses for what many would call trash we open up a world not only of imagination but conservation, also.

Ideally, there will be a final showing of the projects made so that the participants can experience the fulfillment of the entire creative process: imagination, creation and exhibition. A small reception can be planned so that on the last day of the workshop we invite the parents to come a little early and see all of the art that was made during the week or month.


Your Artisan Instructor: Celia Rose

just one of her names, but she smells the same

she feels that nothing is new, there are only differing perspectives that continue to develop along with the movement that was set into place long ago

she finds that expressing herself through dance or paint is as natural as breathing and dreaming, and just as necessary

this artist, forged in the red dirt of Oklahoma and seasoned in the hills of Tennessee, currently lives with and learns from the spirits in Mexico

her creations are the result of what she learns from precious ancient tales and the treasures she finds abandoned in alleyways

nothing is without meaning, you must simply feel for it
