Pam Paulsrud Workshop Sept. 28 & 29

Spontaneous_Mark copy

Pam Paulsrud will be leading us through her class titled, The Spontaneous Mark and the Alternative Image September 28 and 29. $150 for two full days of creative play and guidance. The workshop will be held at Jaycee Park Center for the Arts in Irving. Directions / Maps See the full details for registration on our website workshop page at Kaligrafos.com. Don’t miss this opportunity to study with an internationally known instructor.

When is the last time you had the opportunity to play with pens, brushes, and funky tools that made you laugh or smile—or cringe? When did you last let go of the outcome—giving yourself permission to “see what’s in there”? There is no getting around it—every mark you make is creatively, expressively yours. Since there’s safety in numbers we’ll embark on this serendipitous journey of creativity together.

In this class you’ll explore the distinctive and bold expressions of spontaneous marks using walnut and sumi inks, combined with layering of alternative image processes—and while we’re at it we will explore and extrapolate your handwriting too. We’ll mix in personal ephemera through transfers (your originals won’t be harmed) culminating in a folded, wrapped and stitched accordion book.
