In this Saturday workshop, students will be introduced to the classical art of mosaic. Students will begin by creating a replica of a classic mosaic artwork by using colored paper, learning design and project management concepts along the way. Students will then use pieces of pre-cut stone to create their own individual mosaic. All supplies provided.
This weekend workshop provides a non-judgmental and playful space that encourages students to find their creative voice, have fun, and see what naturally unfolds on the canvas. The first half of the workshop is the “unlearning”. We experiment, play, and sling paint how we might imagine a child would. We create a chaotic layered mess on our canvas. The second half is simplifying the chaos to create a unified cohesive painting. This process helps with letting go of expectations, finding our inner child, and allowing our creativity and artistic style to unfold organically and authentically. No experience is necessary, and all skill levels are welcome.
Saturday & Sunday, July 23 & 24, 10:30 AM – 4:30 PM each day.
Supply list will be sent with confirmation email.
Students will start in the morning with fun writing exercises designed to get us thinking differently. With the teacher’s help, students will find a subject to write about during the workshop. Each teacher will demonstrate song essentials such as melody, story, and structure. Throughout the day, each student will have one-on-one time with an instructor to help develop their song, and plenty of time to work on their song alone. In the evening, we will all come together and share what we’ve done with the group. Everyone will have a chance to give critique and feedback, and these shared perspectives will help the students develop a plan to complete their song- and write more!- after the workshop is over.
Students should come with whatever they need to write songs. If they play an instrument, they should have one. Everyone is encouraged to have a notebook and pen, even if they tend to write on a device such as a laptop.
All skill levels welcomed. Absolutely no experience is necessary. We meet everyone at their level.
Together with the instructor, students will go through the steps of creating a believable and beautiful landscape. All styles and skills and enthusiasms are welcome. Students are asked to bring in a photograph, or iPad image that they’ve taken, that inspires them and that they would like to express on canvas. Students will leave the class with several sketches, a bit of confidence, and one, well done, painting. Art guaranteed!
A supply list and directions to the Eno Mill will be emailed to you after enrollment in the class.
In this introductory class, we will learn how to see light and shadow as we shoot in different locations. You will explore what makes a good composition. Students will photograph everything from nature, street, macro, portraits and self portraits. You will use an application on the phone that will allow you to create Projects / Collections / Diptychs with your images. The app is compatible with sharing to a variety of social media platforms, and sharing to Instagram & Facebook will be covered. Students will take Live Photos, shoot short videos, and learn how to create a slide show on your phone and share it. You will have a portfolio of beautiful images upon completing the course.
