Step into the world of Traditional Ebru, the art of Turkish Watercolor Marbling. This workshop will introduce the preparation of tools and materials, and a wide variety of patterns, as practiced in the classical "cloud art." Based on a foundation of pattern-building in sequence, we will use gouache, an opaque watercolor paint, to create an increasingly complex series of patterns, by allowing color to float on thickened water, then teased into patterns. The resulting papers may be used for calligraphy, endpapers, a background for printed work, book pages, or... let your imagination take wing!

DECONSTRUCTING the NARRATIVE: Working with Text & Image
Instructor Mary Larsen

 

Saturday October 1, 2016
1 to 5 PM
JCBA Bindery 350C in the Wimberly Library

Tuition Schedule: $75 general public / $65 FAU faculty & staff and students from other institutions / $50 FAU students

Utilizing the instructor's work as well as the work of William Cordova and other artists as a starting point for a dialog about the fragmented uses of narrative as a way to re-tell history, participants will explore the use of text and image in innovative ways. The workshop begins with a brief presentation of the artist's use of fragmented narrative and mixed media to tell a story. Participants will work in a wide range of materials, including book pages, maps, different types of paper, magazines, and various found materials. You'll discuss found poetry and be shown techniques in manipulating text on the printed page and other mixed media techniques, including photo transfers. Expect to paint, draw, sew, tear, burn, make marks and rub them out, cutting and pasting to find your voice in creating your own unique narratives.
