Merging Visions Workshop Series
June 13, July 11, and August 8
Patterson-Appleton Arts Center
Join members of VAST and the Denton Poets’ Assembly to celebrate the Merging Visions exhibition through three workshops that unite visual and literary artistic expression.
June 13: Triple Your Fun: Poetry, Origami, and Gelli Printing
Make an origami crane, gelli print a book cover, and bind a small journal with Olivia Walker and Carol Rowley before Beth Honeycutt leads you in a poetic exploration of your experience to accompany your newly created works of art.
This hands-on workshop will begin by tearing things apart and end by putting them back together in new configurations. Participants will take home a frameable work of recycled watercolor art and a new poem created in a fun, fast, easy evening of paper, glue and play.
August 8: Representing Words with Marks, Found Poetry, and Concrete Poetry
Experience language in new ways. In this workshop, you will have the chance to interpret, redefine, and reform words through three different activities that will have you playing with gestural mark making, word searches, and linguistic arrangements.
