Art Adventure Retreat: If the Shoe Fits

The saying goes, “If the shoe fits, wear it.” If it doesn’t fit … well … I say, make art with it.

Shoes are very intimate accessories that are so close to us every day, yet are generally taken for granted. They separate us from the ground. They protect us from the elements. They are a part of our daily lives. If they could talk, they would have rich histories to tell. The shoe, then, is our starting point to create visual stories. Their deep recesses have the potential to hold so much meaning and inspiration.

This class is an introduction to the art of assemblage, using everyday discarded and recycled objects to create a shrine assemblage. You will learn basic construction techniques as well as how to develop themes and narrative.

This workshop is part of the Art Adventure Mixed-Media Retreat, August 25-28, 2022
