Description

Join members of VAST and the Denton Poet’s Assembly to celebrate the Merging Visions exhibition through workshops that unite visual and literary artistic expression.

July 11: Creative Recycling: Torn Paper Collage

This hands-on workshop will begin by tearing things apart and end by putting them back together in new configurations. Participants will take home a frameable work of recycled watercolor art and a new poem created in a fun, fast, easy evening of paper, glue and play.

Christine Irving

Christine Irving is first and foremost a storyteller. Her favorite métier is poetry, but her body of work also includes novels, memoir and travel writing. Christine is most interested in the strands of commonality that link one thing to another and thus to all things. Her life-long study of myth, fairy tales and symbolism helps discover such connections while enriching the images she creates with words. She is the author of five books of poetry. Her latest work, entitled Return to Inanna, is a mythopoeic exploration of the myth of Inanna and its relevance in the lives of contemporary women.

Becca Hines

Becca Hines is a gatherer of stories usually related to nature and the processes mankind has utilized to change the world in which we live. Trained as a speech and language pathologist, her focus in working with children primarily has been centered on developing the language of young children. As a classroom teacher for over 20 years, Becca incorporated music and rhyme to facilitate students’ learning and to generate their interest in the natural world by developing many works for children between the kindergarten and second grade levels. Residing in Denton for over 40 years, she has come to enjoy the creativity of the poets in the Denton Poets’ Assembly and activities supported by the Visual Arts Society of Texas (VAST). A student of watercolor, she also explores other mediums of art and dedicates many hours to the promotion of the arts through VAST.
