Welcome Naramata Folk! Bienvienue!

As you can see, I have not updated this blog in a long while.. since about last year's trip to Naramata, actually!

However, I wanted to give you a brief preview of some projects I'd like to do during the Eco-Art program, July 22-28th 2011. Please keep in mind, these are still the rough sketches for the program and could be subject to change!

Day 1: Nature and People - Red v Green!

You can see the similarities of these two molecules, and I am hoping to do a mandala type project, or exploring warm - cool colours and I like this project from KB

Day 2: Small and Amazing Creatures - 3D Wire structures
I love the style f artist Louise Bourgeois and would like to create some 3D wire creatures, but on a smaller scale that this!

Day 3: we will look at Plastics in the Oceans and complete on canvas a multi-media mod-podge extravaganza, similar to this:

Day 4: Eaarth - altered atlases: painting on, doodling-drawing on, cutting, gluing, adding to, changing the shape of. If you "google" altered books or look on for "altered books" you see the amazing possibilities for this day!

Day 5: What in the World do we Love - open art day, using the techniques we've been exposed to, creating a culminating mural project for closing.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I look forward to meeting you this summer!

  1. You have some fantastic ideas here - I'll be watching with interest to see how they go! I love the work of Louise Bourgeois, and am planning to develop some projects based on her work in the near future (I'm sure it will be a BIG hit with my boys!). Can't wait to see what you come up with! I'd love you to visit me at Dream Painters :)
