Art is deeply personal and learning the techniques to draw from your own life to create unique and meaningful work takes practice.
When you take a day to join the Gretchen Schuette Art Gallery’s first ever Chemeketa Makes workshop, you’ll be doing just that.
On Saturday, February 20, Gary Westford will lead the Chemeketa Makes workshop Finding a Voice: Where do ideas come from? to accompany his upcoming exhibit Time Transfixed. Gary, who has worked as an artist and arts educator for 30 years, produces work that examines environmental and social issues.
“For our inaugural year, we have invited an artist whose work embodies the humanitarian vision and interest in the human condition that Gretchen Schuette supported when she was president at Chemeketa,” says art instructor Laura Mack.
Participants of Finding a Voice will explore the use of personal experiences and interests – heritage, military service, travel, favorite books or films – to brainstorm, collaborate and work independently to create a monument to a loss or triumph, recreate a masterpiece, or illustrate a favorite poem or piece of music.
