This session will be an unhurried exploration of how to develop a rich surface. Through a series of exercises ,we’ll use simple materials-mainly paint, paste, and pastels and charcoal. We’ll build layers ; then cover and uncover portions of those layers. As we practice simplifying, omitting, balancing visual activity and quiet, we will discover from within what leads to the best integration of our ideas and feelings. Covering, uncovering, discovering! We will then design and make an artist’s book compiling our explorations. As we assemble our pages, we will talk and use the elements of good design as they apply to page layouts.

Jacqueline is a mixed media, acrylic and calligraphy artist. She has been on the faculty of several international conferences.
