Making Art & Making Magic

If Walls Could Talk

We can all be found somewhere on the same dirt road, kicking up dust, gradually revealing, feverishly working toward finding new ways to form and mature. We build substrates from which we obtain our creative nourishment and the courage to inscribe our visual stories...constantly seeking where everything outside of us ends and where we begin.


Join Orly and myself for a five-day, texture-making, art-journaling, book-binding experience...



...at Pacific Northwest ArtSchool on the magical Whidbey Island, WA.



On day one we'll come together at our creative space of the week. Soon after we'll go out to explore our new visual reality on the island. We'll be visiting the forest and/or the sea to find texturizing and mark making elements and explore man-made objects in local stores to join the ephemera we brought with us. On day two and three Seth will guide us through the creating of walls, substrates on which magical processes will occur. We will build up these solid surfaces with layers, textures, colors, and marks. This will be followed by two days with Orly wherein each of use will be adding to the pages our own personal narrative, which will surface through the addition of words and images. By the end of day five will be ready to literally tie our individual stories together as we bind our own books, thereby creating the most intimate of personal dossiers.

Registration is open and space is limited.

And also at Pacific NorthWest Art School on Whidbey Island, join me for Cover to Cover, a two-day workshop where we all will create a one-of-a-kind, unconventional artist book. Designed to help you break free of artistic inhibitions and explore possibilities, we will be creating layer after layer of color, texture and dimension using a tremendous range of materials. In this class, we will be putting the "mixed" in the media.

I'm so excited, Seth! I just registered for this workshop! My brother-in-law and sister-in-law live in Anacortes and having been wanting us to come visit. I just heard about the Pacific Northwest Art School the other night from a friend who is taking a workshop there in August. So, this is serendipity at it's finest! My husband is so excited because he'll get to explore and visit with family at the same time!
