SKETCHBOOK EXTRAVAGANZA with WALKER METTLING & JULIA GUALTIERI
Ignite your creative juices in this combined bookmaking, idea generating, creative art making class. The mission of this class is for all participants to ignite their creative juices as they learn how to make a sketchbook by hand and then fill it with inspiring sketches, quirky comics, creative ah haas, and anything else. Visiting artists Walker Mettling and Julia Gualtieri of the Providence Comics Consortium will lead the class through a variety of writing and drawing exercises, games, and open-ended assignments, all while exploring the town of Telluride and its surrounding natural environment. Participants will leave this experience with some bookbinding techniques, new ways to generate ideas, and a ton of tricks for creatively documenting time and place for future use. Students of the Ah Haa School are eligible for discounted lodging through Telluride Alpine Lodging. To receive your discount, please contact Chris Esch via email or call (970)729-8821.
