With your class, you opened up an entirely new door of expression for me. Things just fell into place from throughout my artistic journey and a new river of excitement is flowing!

Long ago when the first peoples would travel from place to place following food and would make up and sing songs that would describe the landmarks of their seasonal journeys. The songs would be passed down as a living map.

You’ve taught me how to tell my stories. I think all art communicates and this is an entirely new and exciting way.

Such a primal feel to it. I feel connected in some small way to those ancestral singers and story tellers.

I am forever grateful to learning how to make special little bundles and books out of things I find. just made the sweetest little book from an old matchbox I found in the parking lot under some snow mush. I didn’t know where it would end up but knew it would be awesome.

This book will contain my little songs, my very own maps of my journey. And wandering!!

Wandering Through New Beginnings
and
Wandering Through The Seasons:

 A Winter Landscape

The Renewal of Spring

 The Warm Glow of Summer

And Wandering Through...

 The Winds of Change in Autumn. 

DESCRIPTION

There will be four components or sections to each theme. The main projects will be in our Book of Wanderings, but there will also be a "Pathways" component, "Letters to Myself" and "Studio Moments."

Each of these will sections will have videos as I gently guide and inspire you through our projects.

The videos will be yours to access forever! 

Our projects will begin with constructing our books using a very easy and fun technique. Next I will share and guide you through my processes from the backgrounds, to collaging, and lastly to embellishing and adding the final details.

 
 

Here are some of the things we will be doing:

  • Working with pan pastels, inks and watercolor paints.
  • Collaging with texture papers and fabrics. 
  • Adding different elements to our collages including metal and wood, wire, threads and found and collected objects.
  • Making books, one larger Book of Wandering and five smaller ones (all easy to make!)
  • Stitching by hand, wiring, attaching, constructing and assembling, painting, collaging, designing and most of all creating.
  • Arranging and photographing,(any camera or yourcellphone will work).

    As many of you know, I love arranging everyday objects into still-life's and vignettes. And to find beauty in the natural world and even the smallest details... I would like to share my processes with you during this workshop. Photographing your art space and easy and using creative art and writing prompts will also be included in this workshop.
  • Writing, I will share five writing exercises and videos that are easy, fun and creative!

Roxanne encourages her students to find their magic and make their own way, and her lessons offer endless wisdom and insight to help you with each project. She is available to help with challenges and questions as you encounter them and encourages students to post them on the class Facebook so everyone can benefit from the discussions.

I just adore watching Roxanne Evans Stout pick up that scrubbly old brush, and shlop on the matte medium, hap-hazard-style, and I love the scratchy sound it makes on her pages. The videos are wonderful.
