Workshop Presenters:
SHOESHRINES: FROM TRASH TO TREASURE

Melanie Guion-artist from New Orleans (now Nashville) will share her concepts for mixed media Shoe Shrines. Get ready to think about junk in a whole new way as we take old, worn out shoes and turn them into works of art!

In this workshop, you will learn how to prep, paint, embellish and mount your own Shoeshrine. You will get the shoe, beads, glitter, eyehooks and paint. You should begin to assemble items you may want to incorporate into your piece. Great items include:

Broken jewelry or that lone earring (face it, its mate is never going to reappear) , cards, trim and upholstery remnants, small plastic toys and knickknacks

Think about someone you’d like to honor in your shrine: a person (living or dead), a beloved pet or even a special place. You will paint or decoupage the image onto the shoe. If you choose to decoupage, please bring a photocopy on plain copy paper; photographs and glossy prints do not work well for this project. Also, if you are able, please bring a hot glue gun, glue sticks and a hairdryer.

SKETCHBOOKS: A DAILY LIFE

Joe Christy-artist from Nashville will share his infusion of a daily sketchbook practice into his life for 18+ years.

Get your hands dirty playing and thinking in this workshop designed for teaching artists. Paramount to any daily studio practices, the sketchbook is the security blanket, the time saver, the idea holder, and the constant companion to many artists. This workshop engages you in the exploration of both sketchbook activities and philosophies. Artists will spend most of the workshop playing with media exploration.

YOU WILL SPEND 3 HOURS WITH EACH ARTIST.

COST: $40 members, $45 non members $35 pre-service
