ART JOURNALS AND SKETCHBOOKS – A WORKSHOP WITH META STRICK
June 2, 2012
$40 for members/ $45 for non-members. Learn some strategies to step beyond "blank page fear" and begin playing in your own personal art journal or sketchbook. We will explore a variety of "assignments" and consider the many purposes and rewards of this on-going activity. You do not have to be an artist to enjoy this workshop.
Bring your own blank journal, purchase one at this workshop or consider joining us on April 28th with Mary Liz Riddle to make your own. Lots of pens and markers, paints, collage papers and glue, and assorted junque will be provided to enhance your pages.
Meta Strick comes to us from Fairfield, Vermont where she paints, draws, cuts, carves, sews and assembles, in order to make one-of-a-kind Art Dolls, mixed media pieces that might be "paintings," and charming decorative thingamajigs. Her interest in Book Arts is evident in the tiny handmade books held by her unique Art Dolls. An accomplished calligrapher, she embellishes most of her work with lettering.
She has been teaching for 25 years at CCV while continuing to explore and expand her own artistic endeavors. Veering off, staying outside the lines, believing that, as Andy Warhol once said, "Art is what you can get away with," Meta fills her life with art, friends, family and loud music
