Collage Journeys in Vermont
August 13 – 17, 2013
Join me, Jane Davies, for a five-day adventure in collage and painting at my studio in beautiful rural Rupert, Vermont. In this year’s edition of Collage Journeys in Vermont we will focus on the foundations of abstract composition, and at the same time discover connections and content in our work. Explore line, shape, color, texture, and image to develop a personal visual vocabulary. Learn how to use color harmonies and contrasts to bring your collages to a new level of expression. We will make use of our sketchbooks and journals as well, to gain a sense of inquiry and play in developing ideas “off the canvas”. You will come away from this workshop with
- Greater confidence in your expressive capabilities through color and composition
- New skills and techniques for connecting image to ideas
- A sense of your own creative potential through collage and painting
- Tools for maintaining a more consistent art practice
- Several finished projects
Throughout the workshop I will demonstrate techniques and show examples from my own collage collection. We will take some time for individual projects, and the studio is open 24 hours for your use. Some materials will be provided, though I will provide a supply list as well.
Housing and Meals
I will send each student a list of accommodations in the area. There are many charming B&B’s and inns within fifteen minutes of my studio, at a variety of price ranges. There are several guest houses, within minutes of the studio, which I can arrange to rent. Each accommodates three to four people (three/four bedrooms, two baths) and has a full kitchen and living area. These rooms are $75 per night per person, definitely the best deal you will find! Let me know EARLY if you are interested in one of these rooms.
Lunch will be provided each day of the workshop and is included in the fee. You are on your own for breakfast and dinner.
Cost: $495, includes tuition, lunch, and some materials.
A $200 deposit for tuition is required by May 1, which is non-refundable after July 15. Balance is due August 1.
A $200 deposit for a guest house room is required by May 1, which is non-refundable by July 15. Balance due before the end of the workshop
