As many of you know, Lisa Kokin is one of my favorite mixed media artists. Those of us who live in the Bay Area are so lucky, because Lisa teaches regular classes out of her studio in El Sobrante. You may remember that I took this class from Lisa earlier this year. It was an incredible experience, and so I am really excited to take this more extended series of classes from Lisa beginning in January: Reuse Muse 2014 with Lisa Kokin // Words / Letters / Fragments + Recycled Materials.
If you are interested in getting into (or expanding your experience in) book arts, collage or sculpture, this is a fantastic opportunity! Here’s more from Lisa about this series: “The class, taught in a series of six-week sessions, will focus on the use of words, narrative (linear and non-linear), letters as a design element, found and appropriated text, invented alphabets, and the numerous ways that words and letters can be used in art to create both narrative and image. Books, collage, and sculpture are some of the forms that the work will take. Weekly concept- and materials-based assignments will provide a structure and can be followed to the letter, as it were, or interpreted loosely and broadly or, if another path presents itself, not used at all. We will look at the work of a broad range of contemporary artists who use words and text in their work for inspiration and context. A spirit of curiosity, spontaneity, and openness will be encouraged. The class will nurture a spirit of curiosity and risk-taking, which emphasizes process as well as product. Critiques are both supportive and challenging. All levels of art experience are welcome! ”
Lisa is an experienced teacher and also one of the kindest, most generous artists I’ve ever met. There are a few spots left and I hope you will join me!
