Accessing the Story Within
Writing with Susan Bono
Susan is the inspiration for this particular get-together. As a writer-in-residence, she will help create a community that supports and supercharges your creative intentions! Along with copious writing time, you’ll enjoy opportunities to discuss craft and process, engage in nurturing feedback, and exercise your muse. Writers of all genres and levels welcome.
Photography with Marc Monaghan
Instead of just taking a picture, this workshop will focus on how to develop a story, and then capture just the right photo to express what you want to say. You will explore the farm on a river with a camera, and create a photo essay using Emandal as a source of inspiration. Any/All photographers welcome, no matter what one’s experience.
Marc captured these two photos at Zarya’s wedding… Although he’s a documentary photographer, and really doesn’t DO weddings, he graciously offered to do my daughter’s… and did an exemplary job of providing us with a bit of everything that went on that weekend.
Fabric Collage with Laura Fogg
If your story is evoked by a visual memory, a fabric collage might be just the way to represent it. Starting with a photo of a favorite place, you will learn how to freeform cut and collage fabrics and novelty trims, and either glue or sew them together in a finished “quilt.” No quilting experience necessary.
Watercolor Nature Journaling with Kristin Meuser
Nature journaling is a way of experiencing our environment more fully. As we begin to draw and paint what we see, we begin to see more clearly. When we add our words to the page, whether to ask questions, explain what we see, or express our responses, we commit our experience to memory. Kristin will be teaching you techniques for drawing flowers, leaves and landscapes, as well as color mixing with a limited palette which will help you approach nature journaling with more ease. You’ll also explore laying out your pages with your drawings and paintings, and writing about what you’ve explored. She will have kits on hand to buy or you can bring your favorite paints and journals with you. Think compact! No experience necessary!
Kristin has lovingly painted Emandal as a family camper for over 20 years. She is experienced in landscape painting in many mediums including watercolor, pastels, oils and acrylics. Her love of the land is perhaps most deeply expressed in her nature journals. She lives in Petaluma, CA. Visit her website at www.artmeuse.com.
