This studio class focuses on nature's stories. See how you can use your own narrative tales and personal interests to inspire and inform your art under the influence of Alice Aycock and Michelle Stuart. Aycock's lifelong fascination with stories and storytelling is evident in her installations, sculptures, and drawings, which are said to be equal parts engineering and science fiction. Stuart pushes the boundaries of traditional artist mediums as she explores both natural landscapes and cultural environments. Using feathers, seeds, shells, pods, and plants as your inspiration, experiment with drawing, printing, and book arts to tell your tale.
Facilitators: Joni Chancer, SBMA Program and Curriculum Consultant; Gina Rester-Zodrow, Teaching Artist
