Mapping Creative Play with Alyssa Coffin
November 19, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - November 20, 2021 @ 9:00 pm$130
Alyssa Coffin is an interdisciplinary artist that has been practicing since graduating with a BFA in 2014. She has been teaching for 3 years, beginning with my residency at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. Join her for this two night class November 19th & 20th from 6-9pm.
Anxiety, fear, and creative block often plague us as makers. This class will help students recover their creative source and remember how to play. By letting go of the ideal finished product, students will be opened up to new ways of ideation through the process of mapping. Maps are constructed from words generated through writing exercises, material play and body in space exercises. Through spontaneous, sensory engagement with material (including their own form in space), students will trace their creative inclinations for a deeper understanding of their personal visual language and creative process.

Please bring scissors, a notebook & pencil for writing exercises and any extra scraps of material you would like to play with- fabric, paper, wood, metal. Think of household items that intrigue you such as foil, toothpicks, pennies or cotton balls and/or things found in nature- leaves, sticks, rocks etc.
