Keeping a Visual Journal–Teen Edition with Ingrid Ellison
April 16, 2019 @ 10:00 am - April 18, 2019 @ 2:00 pm
Tuesday through Thursday, April 16 to 18, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Journals provide a space to reflect, observe, dream, and rant in a truly personal creative space—the painted page. The nature of keeping a journal is perfect for discovering new forms of expression both through content and materials. From collecting to collaging, drawing to doodling, creating secret envelopes to writing prompts, this three-day workshop led by artist Ingrid Ellison will introduce teenagers to a variety of art materials and processes both traditional and unconventional for capturing daily inspiration on a painted page. Class time will include lots of demonstrations, inspiration, prompts, and time for snack breaks and optional sharing. Please bring a bag lunch.
Ingrid Ellison is a painter and art instructor working in oil, mixed media, and printmaking. She is a graduate of Skidmore College and earned her MFA from American University. Since moving to Maine in 2007, Ingrid has exhibited at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Åarhus Gallery, the University of Maine–Bangor, and the Cynthia Winings Gallery.
