Imaginary Journey Workshop

I taught a new creativity workshop recently at the Redlands Art Association in Redlands, CA. “Imaginary Journey-Adventures in Mixed Media, Collage, & Text” began with making an Origami Treasure Box to take on the journey. This class was a time for students to take an adventure into their creative selves, to play, to explore their art voice in new ways using everyday materials. We shared our discoveries of which words, pictures, and treasures we gathered for the journey.

Themes developed as our boats traveled over spontaneous collages of images and text. Revelations of new directions to take or permission to follow dreams occurred. We ended by creating Mail Art using my fabric scraps from around the world. We “mailed” the gift to each other with a message of encouragement inside.

This was a rich day. I thank all who participated.
