Often the “Aha!” for our work comes indirectly. I find scraps of paper in my studio from years ago where I have scrawled: speechless mute melliflerous motet or olive oil, pepper, bread and onions. Other papers have bits of color or stitching, perhaps a coffee ring.

In this class we will begin with scraps we gather, and perhaps exchange. These bits and pieces will be the beginning of finding a thread that connects the
writing and painting that we do. We will use collage, drawing, watercolor and writing. Color studies, composition, watercolor and drawing techniques will be part of the exploration. Inspiration will come from our scraps, music and poetry in a contmplative atmosphere.

Exercises will foster quality of line, seeing with the eyes of an artist, and doing work that is particular to each person. Each student will choose a subject and make a small book to document the process.
