Creative Explorations
Add to your calendar
Date: June 16, 6:00 pm
Location: Art Studio of the Center for the Arts
Details: Unlock your creative potential! In this workshop, participants will be guided in how to enter into an artistic conversation with themselves and their personal, creative processes. Using mixed media, we will explore visual metaphors and internal maps, helping us learn how to tap into our own unique brand of personal expression. Ivy Walker will guide students through expressive and experimental exercises with paint, collage, and drawing, with each participant creating a personal mixed media collection. The ultimate goal is to help participants let go and allow the space for their own personality and strengths to unfold in their artwork. No art experience necessary. Mixed Media supplies are included in cost of class.

WHEN
Tuesday & Thursday, June 16 & 18

TIME
6:00-8:00 PM

COST
$65 includes all material

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.
 
Unfortunately, the instructor needs to reschedule this class due to a family emergency.  Please contact Program Director Melissa Mason at 970-596-5497 to find out the new dates (probably in late summer) and enroll.
