Past Lines: how to draw your past through mixed media, collage and collaborative work

with Artist-in-Residence Virginia Mitford

Past Lines is a multimedia workshop that introduces participants to working with memory and nostalgia in original ways, with a focus on the process of making art instead of the final product. Virginia asks each participant to bring a personal artifact or document (such as an old photo, home movie, or letter) to be shared. As a group we will transform these documents through convoluted steps and processes involving (and not limited to) drawing tools, photocopiers, india ink and water colour paints, resulting in each person having created a variety of visual experiments that examine nostalgia from different angles and can act as fuel for future art-making.

Date: Sunday, March 26th, 1:30-5:00
Location: KIAC Classroom 

KIAC Members - $33
Non-members $36

Supplies: All art supplies are included, but… participants should bring the following to the workshop

> nostalgic photograph(s)/image(s) 

> and/or flat, smooth objects (ex: small items of clothing, pressed flowers, letters)

Level: All levels welcome.
