Ripple Women's Art Retreat
Creating Art with the Land

Add to your calendar
Date: September 5, 5:00 pm
Continues Until: September 7
Location: Art Studio of the Center for the Arts
Details: The CB Wildflower Festival in partnership with the Art Studio of the Center for the Arts brings you Ripple: Three-Day Women's Art Retreats, where participants are invited to immerse themselves in art surrounded by our majestic mountain scenery in a non-threatening, relaxing, and pampered environment.

Participation in a restorative retreat steeped in the visual arts at Ripple allows for time and space to connect with one’s inner visions and express them in a supportive environment.  Designed to awaken and foster women’s innate creative energy, our methods help women make a connection to the self, engage in a restorative experience, and create a positive shift in personal creative growth.


RETREAT DETAILS
Creating Art with the Landscape: Listening to Nature and Experiencing its Connective Creative Energy
Instructor: Ivy Walker


In this three day workshop, Ivy Walker shares her passion for creating art within our beautiful and awe-inspiring Crested Butte landscape. Ivy will lead the group to sites near rivers, in aspen forests, and with views of tall peaks to create works of art as a means to connect with creativity and listen deeply to inspirations from the environment. As a land artist herself, Ivy, shares ways in which participants can explore making art in the outdoors. Using natural materials, such as stones, branches, leaves, etc. and art materials, such as paper, charcoal, thread, etc., the group will investigate the surprising revelations and pieces of art brought forth by collaborating artistically with the land and its elements. As a means of documenting the art we create, which is transient by nature, we will photograph our works to make a lasting treasure of our time spent creating in the land. In addition, Ivy will facilitate on-site discussions that weave together art, environmental, psychological, and spiritual ideas, bringing each participant closer to themselves, the process, and their artistic energies. During an evening program, Ivy will present a casual talk with slides about historical and contemporary land art, inspiring the group with ideas and beautiful creations made by other artists in the land from around the world.

ABOUT IVY
Ivy Walker creates temporary artworks in the land and documents these through photographs. She places handmade paper cut-outs, or other art materials, into the land to evoke a temporary, poetic presence. Her artwork explores 'the ephemeral' and how this quality, paradoxically, connects all life with the ‘Infinite’.
Walker has a Master of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she also taught Drawing and Art Foundations as a part-time lecturer. She received a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Printmaking from Colorado State University. She is currently studying at Earth Based Institute in the Nature Connected Coaching program where she is incorporating creating art with nature and transformational coaching. Recently, she has shown work at Artcorps in Pueblo and in Denver at Redline Gallery. Her work is represented by Gallery 3 in Crested Butte. For more information, go to www.ivywalker.com.
