Developing Narrative Voices: “Echoes from Schools”

with Paula Benfer
Thursday, April 2, 6-9pm; Saturday & Sunday, April 4-5, 9am-4pm

Budding writers and visual artists will enjoy using their personal school day experiences to create a traditional book, or 3-D object. First, deconstruct ordinary school objects and transform them into “covers” or housings for your stories. Then, illustrate your written story with reduction prints, stamps, embossments, and other methods. This class will be free flowing and playful, implementing many collage and fiber mediums. Experiment with a variety of tools, along with writing and printed illustrations. Final pieces will be on display in a culminating celebration and sharing of stories with invited guests.
