As announced last week, each remaining Friday in the month of June will feature one of our Artist Instructors and the Studio Session that they are offering at our October Experience. Our Friday Feature Series is the perfect showcase for the concept that informed the structure of this distinctive event: 3 Artists, 3 Days, 1 surface, and a Show! While each of our Artist Instructors brings a different approach to her mixed media endeavors, they will each be presenting their methodology on the incomparable Stonehenge paper. Jeanne beautifully blends light washes of color with fiber elements to tell her own, unique story – rich with many layers of luscious color and texture.
Whether entertaining guests in her home, nestled among the greenery of a yard surrounded by trees and plants, or addressing small and large groups in professional training events: our Guest Artist Instructor, Jeanne, is an excellent communicator! She has a natural ability to put folks at ease and comfortable people are most often quite happy people. She has a passion for creativity that has spanned a variety of interests in her youth and throughout her adulthood. We are thrilled to have her on our team for the Haw River Mixed Media Experience in October, 2018.
In her Studio Session, Jeanne will lead Creative Explorers in exercises designed to incorporate assorted fiber content (fabrics, roving, and threads) and notions in their creative, mixed media expressions. Bringing her love of nature to the table, Jeanne will inspire the inclusion of organic elements to evoke a sense of place as well as bringing dimension and texture to the work. In answer to the declaration “Oh, I don’t sew…” she responds “You don’t have to!” She will share stitch-free (and stress-free) methods for incorporating more fiber in your work – and is a firm believer that we can all do many things we think we can’t if we come at them from a different angle. She looks forward to spending the day in the studio, coming up with new ways to combine paint, thread & fiber, fabric, and paper in imaginative and innovative ways. Have questions for Jeanne or about this creative adventure? Contact us any time – we look forward to hearing from you!
Next week, we’ll see what Michelle has in store for our Creative Explorers.
