Art Making On and Off The Map: Book Forms, Card Portfolios and Mail Art.

Weekend Mixed Media Retreat in Gulfport Florida

JANUARY 15 - 17, 2010

Gulfport Art Center, Gulfport Florida (St. Petersburg)

This is a weekend for playing with paper and a sense of place, taking inspiration from observing and inventing our surround. Possibilities include the view, both built and natural; the wind, weather, water, sky and wild life, as well as local and invented history. Visual enchantment is in these border zones. We’ll examine simple book forms, card portfolios and mail art. We will experiment with color, collage, surface embellishment, stencils, stamps, prints, pleats, folds and tears.

$260 includes studio supply fee, slide talk, and daily lavish snacks.
Limited to 12 participants, register early! (still a few places open)
