“From Griffin to Sabine and back again.”
Saanich on Vancouver Island (near Victoria) July 19th and 20th 2014.
This workshop is now full but wait list is being taken.
This one is going to be a bit different to my previous workshops, as it will be more about getting the creativity juices flowing and less about producing art and making collages.
So, all being well, we’ll gather an interesting and supportive group of writers, musicians, magic carpet weavers, and donkey balancers, as well as regular and irregular artists.
Starting with the origins of Griffin and Sabine and the idea of internal dialogue, we’ll be utilizing, writing, verbal invention and different types of drawing (I promise, this isn’t school, so you wont be marked for drawing skills!)
To get the most out of the weekend you’ll need to bring both your sense of humour and your emotional bravery.
“In order to surprise others, first you have to surprise yourself.”
$375.00 plus tax. A nonrefundable deposit of $100. is required at time of registering and balance due one month before the workshop.
SPAIN The Tricksters Hat. A cocktail of Art, Intuition and Mischief
September 28 - October 6 2014
This workshop is now full. If you would like to be put on a wait list, please contact the Webcurator.
Set amongst the sweeping olive hills of Southern Spain, midway between Granada and Malaga stands the beautifully restored mill El Molino and it's there, each year, that Mike and Hilary Powell host a series of soirees that offer a chance to relax, eat, drink and (re)discover the essence of creativity.
This workshop, entitled "The Trickster’s Hat - A Cocktail of Art, Intuition and Mischief.." will be our eighth at El Molino and highlights both Nick's perceptive teaching and Mikes's culinary genius. The daily sessions focus on making collage from both images and words. Participants do not need to have a high level of artistic skill, though a little creative experience and a sense of humor won't hinder. If you are experienced but are in the throws of creative block—playtime calls.
In addition to the art, the magnificent Mediterranean cuisine, the unlimited supply of wine and the dubiously eccentric evening entertainment, we'll also be taking excursions to Granada (Alhambra) and Cordoba.
