The Southern Oregon Guild invites you to join Guild member Pam Haunschild in a fun, exciting in-person painting workshop! We will be creating textured, complex watermedia backgrounds and then work on turning them into successfully finished paintings. You can work in the watermedia of your choice (acrylic, watercolor, ink, or gouache). We will work to create both dimensional texture (raised above the surface of the painting) and visual texture (on the surface) using a texturing medium (provided) and some ordinary household items. This class is appropriate for anyone – no painting experience necessary.
This class will be held at the Guild Gallery & Art Center at 24353 Redwood Highway Kerby, Or 97531.
We have all faced enormous challenges this past year and a half; and we've gotten creative about getting through. How can creativity continue to support us as we heal from a year of isolation and evacuation; as we re-emerge and reconnect? This weekend workshop will draw on Process Work, Theatre for Living/Theatre of the Oppressed, and performance methods such as Viewpoints and Grotowski to explore through movement and expression our deepest sources of creativity and motivation. This space will be playful, healing, transformative, and open to anyone! You don't need to be a performer or an established artist to participate; and artists from any medium will benefit from this work. We will journal, move, talk, dance, play and more.
Proposals will be accepted on an ongoing basis.
The Southern Oregon Guild of Artists & Artisans is seeking proposals from creative people in the Illinois Valley and Josephine County to deliver online workshops on Thursday evenings from 6-8pm this fall, starting in mid-October, as part of our "Creative Community" series.
We use the term "arts" and "artists" in a broad sense, encompassing all forms of creative practice and thinking. And, you don't have to be an expert!
We are looking for proposals that can happen via Zoom and are interactive, engaging, and encourage connections among participants. Your idea might involve just one Zoom meeting or several. We aim to create opportunities for exploration and to strengthen the creative community in southern Oregon’s Josephine County, especially in the Illinois Valley.
The Guild will provide support in coming up with ideas, facilitation, Zoom access, promotion and outreach, and a small stipend, depending on participation. Workshops will be offered for free with a suggested donation; 10% of the donations will go to the presenter with a $50 minimum guaranteed.
If you are interested in applying for Active membership in the Southern Oregon Guild of Artists and Artisans and have not yet met with a Guild Board member, contact us through Guild President, Joyce Abrams, to arrange a meeting to show your work and have your questions answered.
Or, you can pick up an application at the Guild Gallery and Art Center, learn about the Guild from the Gallery Host, and arrange to meet with a Board member.
The Guild Headquarters is located on the Rogue Community College Kerby Campus
Address: 24353 Redwood Highway, Kerby, Oregon.
Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
