DIANA SANFORD
MAY 17-20
JAM SESSION 1 & 2: PASTEL & MIXED MEDIA
$400

In addition to the basic materials list, please bring:
2 boards (so you can work back and forth and for drying time), A small spray bottle and Isopropyl alcohol (any strength..ordinary drug store alcohol), Golden semi-gloss gel medium - regular (Bring your own or share mine)
Transparent gesso (I use Liquitex because it's thin... a different brand is fine), A journal for your "contemplations"
A portable/folding stool (op)... we may make it out one day
Large palette knife/paint scraper or plenty of old membership cards for spreading material. Some of your own photos... on paper or your phone/pad
Optional: acrylics, or any other materials you might want to bring

You'll use 18-20 papers over the course of the workshop and same suggestions apply but you'll be using even more material – so the stronger the paper the better.

Dakota can supply you with most of the materials so be sure to check with them.

Assignment
(Yes, you've seen this before! Remember or bring your words, or better yet, do it again it might have changed)

Take whatever time you have to spread out a lot of your work in front of you, gather it somehow…and/or, look at other artists work. As you look, write down words that come to you that describe in some way what you like about what you see…why something appeals or intrigues you. For example, your list might have words like: atmospheric, bright, moody, playful, has story or narrative, romantic, bold, mysterious, transformative, contrast, texture, rich surface, ambiguous, gritty, challenging, dramatic, movement, etc.

When you've generated a list of some length…identify the 3-5 words that feel the most significant to you….that in some way answer the question: "I want my work to be...or to have…" Memorize or bring these words with you to the workshop.

A second – optional – assignment (this is just a suggestion and up to you), you might be intrigued by getting online and taking an Enneagram (personality type) test. A good site is http://www.EnneagramInstitute.com www.EnneagramInstitute.com which has the Riso-Hudson version, but there are many others.

Our official schedule will be 9:00 to 4:00 each day (but be sure you're all set up and ready to start at 9:00 the first day.) AND, we will de-brief (and wine down) every afternoon from 4:00 to... whenever! So please put this in your schedule.
