WORKSHOP: LIFE LINES
Saturday-Sunday, December 3-4, 2016
10 AM – 5 PM
203 Margaret Morrison Hall, CMU
Fees: $125, Guild member
In this class we will investigate and incorporate the underpinnings of the hidden laws of nature-sacred geometry-exploring these forms and synthesizing the linear with the artistic aspect of pattern and beauty.
Step by step we'll design a template from which to springboard, creating a portfolio of our own unique expression. A compass, straight edge and a variety of tools for writing and calculating forms will be paired with graphite, ink and watercolor.
Music, meditation, sound and silence will accompany us as we wind our way through a series of exercises exploring the tempo and voice of our unique line-story, script, gesture and mark-developing flow-letting go of the familiar long enough to greet the unexpected.
Pamela Paulsrud is a visual artist recognized internationally as a papermaker, calligrapher, book artist and collaborator creating both intimate pieces and large-scale installations. Her exploration in energy and vibration, letters and lines, her love of the land, the earth and its resonance, inspires both her work and her life. She also continues her research and practice in energetic healing modalities—which simultaneously informs her art. She received her MFA from Columbia College Chicago in Interdisciplinary Arts concentrating in Book and Paper.
