Maps are fascinating. They’re visual tools that can tell us where we’re going, or record where we’ve been. They can be analytical or whimsical, realistic or imaginary, historical or futuristic. No matter what, they always tell some kind of story: of the people who make them, the places they depict, and the time period they were made in.
If the story of your life was a map, what would it look like? This workshop will be a journey of imagination and discovery, as you create personalized mixed-media maps based on your own history and experiences. Stephanie will use some guided writing exercises to help you dig up images and stories from your life, then help you turn what you find into images. Experimenting with making map-like imagery from found papers and acrylic paint, we’ll use what we learned to make a mixed-media map on canvas.
