Paper Quilts
Using traditional hand-stitching and machine sewing techniques, students will create small paper quilts from life's ephemera to commemorate, memorialize or visually narrate a moment or memory. Each paper quilt will bind together photos, letters, news clippings and papers of all sorts that share a common thread. Bring your own sewing machine if you have one. Students provide most of their own collage materials.
$90, some materials included

Image Transfers
Learn a range of transfer techniques and how to use materials such as gel medium, encaustic, adhesive, and natural solvent to transfer images and text to paper, wood, and other substrates.
$100, most materials included

Writing for Artists
Tired of insisting the art speaks for itself? Help your art career fall into place by giving your work, and yourself, a voice. Galleries, the press, and anyone with a grant to offer, want to read your words. You need words on your website, blog, and in social media. Learn and practice what makes an effective bio, artist statement, and CV.
