Mapping the Journey

It’s all about you in this mixed-media workshop! Using a variety of prompts, exercises, media, techniques, images, and words, you will map out the mystery that is YOU by contemplating where you have been, where you are, and where you are going.

Engage in a process of self-discovery and introspection as you delve into new realms, and set the direction of your intention as you explore a process of personal mapping. Take your art making to a new level as you experiment with layering paint, drawing, collage, text, image transfers, and more to define your personal themes and create artwork from your personal vision. Prepare to get still, get quiet, and go inside as you learn to use mapping as a powerful tool for living and dreaming and for making rich, layered art.
