A playful and innovative approach to communicative mark-making and collage. Students will work with fabric and paper to create an emphasis on rhythm, harmony, and dissonance. The workshop will focus on drawing, painting, and adhering as well as both hand and machine stitching.

Students will experiment and explore with pigments, cloth, and thread to create dynamic, communicative artwork. Students will work with the aim of expanding their visual vocabulary. The pieces will be considered finished when they have a voice of their own and they start to sing.

Jason joins us from Kansas City.

Students are required to bring a sewing machine with a free motion foot.
