Event Details

Across Roads Center for the Arts presents:


Mix-It-Up Mark Making:

an art making workshop with Jane Davies

Saturday, April 18, 9:30-4:30pm 

and

Sunday, April 19, 9:30-4pm

$325 for both days--lunch included each day

($150 deposit to hold spot) 

We all make marks of one kind of another, whether doodling while on the phone, drawing a map or diagram, or making art.

This is a Mark Making Marathon which will help you loosen up and step up the momentum of your art practice. In this workshop you will explore a wide variety of materials and discover techniques through which you can expand on your unique expression. Instead of going on autopilot when making marks, become conscious of their character, their expressive qualities, and then expand your vocabulary beyond the predictable.

Build dynamic images by emphasizing contrastingmarks, rather than repetitive ones. Make lines, scribbles, masses, drips, splatters, transfers (transferring paint from one surface to another), collage, and more, using acrylic based paints, inks, drawing materials, papers, and your imagination.



  • Limited space available!
  • Ms. Davies' workshops often are full months in advance. Sign up early to secure your seat in a fun filled weekend of art making! (A wait list will be taken once enrollment fills and wait list participants will be added as space becomes available).

Our sincere gratitude to Jane Davies for generously donating her talents and teaching of this workshop to benefit the Grange Hall Cultural Center Renovation Fund. 

BIO: Jane Davies is a full time artist working in collage, painting, and encaustic. She offers workshops at her studio and nationwide, focusing on helping people to find a personal and playful approach to art. 

Beginning as a potter in the early nineties, selling her colorful hand-painted ceramics at craft shows, Davies gradually transitioned into freelance art, designing tableware, fabric, paper goods, stationery, and other products, using painting and collage as her medium. For the past several years, Davies has put most of her efforts towards teaching, writing, and making art. http://janedaviesstudios.com


TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

I believe that making art is a journey with very few hand-holds and only a general road map. Each participant has to find his or her own way, while at the same time remain open to learning from others.

While I may teach a multitude of techniques, my focus is on the back-and-forth play of spontaneity and intention that characterizes the creative process. I try to pave the way into that precarious I-don’t-know-what-to-do-next zone, where you are challenged to forge a personal path, with guidance, to discover the satisfaction of making art that is truly your own. Cultivating a degree of comfort, or at least willingness, with that awkward territory of not-knowing, is one of the keys to finding your creative edge.
