This 2-day workshop will combine a private tour of Tippet Rise with instruction on creative ways to keep an art journal. Time will be spent in the field and in the classroom.
Day 1, students will meet at the Tippet Rise Art Center. Once there, time will be spent walking the trails while viewing sculpture and the landscape. The dirt trail is about 5 miles and has a slight incline. In the field, Tippet Rise education staff will discuss the art of journaling and recording observations. Participants need to be prepared for any kind of weather and bring a lunch if they want, to eat at the Art Center.
Day 2, students will meet on at the Carbon County Arts Guild, where in the classroom, they will reflect on the sketches, field notes, and photos taken during the Tippet Rise tour. Using heavy weight paper or canvas, watercolors, acrylic paint, printmaking tools, pens, markers, pencils and charcoal, each person will work to create a finished piece of art. Students can bring other materials to use for the final project if they wish.
All skill levels are welcome to attend. Supplies will be provided for both days. Space is limited to 15. Registration is required.
