For anyone who registers for the Altered Art Retreat, they should come prepared with the following:

1. 1 hardback dime store or used book, no more than 200 pages long, with a sturdy spine. Choose a book that calls to your heart or whimsy. It doesn’t have to be a novel. It can be a text book, cookbook, fairy tale, how to, etc.

2. 1 inspirational quote, scripture, etc. that can be illustrated with a simple shape, such as a hand, heart, house, head, body, flower, leaf, tree, sun, star, moon…. Just write it down and bring it along.

3. 1 X-Acto knife


OPTIONAL: A small assortment of brushes. We will be using brushes for applying acrylic paint, gesso, watercolor and glue.

HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT BEFORE CLASS:

***Bring 1 ziplock baggie full of images of any kind that have been torn or cut from magazines, art books, maps, texts, napkins, etc. or anything graphical and flat. Search your home for old ticket stubs, luggage tags, labels, dress patterns. Bring stuff to swap if you want.

*Ephemera packets will be available for sale at the retreat that will include art paper, paper images, clips, ribbon scraps, fibers, broken jewelry, brads, etc.

*During the retreat we will make one collage, size 12x12, suitable for framing, and begin work on an altered book. We will incorporate these techniques: paper weaving, found poetry, niche, tape transfer, folding, binding… and more!

The night was a total white out with the featured artist Rick Boni being snowed in as well as a couple other artists living over an hour away in some cases. Two woodartists were able to showcase their work for this very intimate meet and greet ;) We all were honored with their braving of the elements.
Another reception is scheduled for March 2nd after the Chainsaw Rendezvous in February for all 3 artists.

Garden Muses and display

Gallery during Rick Boni with Dan Freeburg and Cliff Stump reception

This wire tree is perfect for the display of garden muses that I create out of 12 gauge copper wire & semi-precious stones.
These are the newest, just finished last week! I love these Turquoise stars on the large front pendant.
