ArtSource Summer Institute 2017 featuring Mark McCoin
Check out this photo journal for a little insight into what goes on at an ArtSource Summer Institute. Our theme for the week was A Mindful Odyssey.
After checking in we started our creative engines by creating genius figures with Karen. These geniuses were meant to tag-along with us throughout the week to inspire and help us as needed. Later, guest speaker Jenna McBride led us in exploring sand trays, an expressive therapy activity involving the use of miniatures. Using the miniatures to guide our imagination, we created little ensembles of meaning in the landscape surrounding the studio. In the evening, we got all wrapped up with Amy by building armatures and wrapping them with fabric scraps and found objects.
The day started with Jody asking us to rely only on our sense of touch to sculpt with clay. This helped us to isolate our senses on feeling the clay and not worrying about the visual appearance of our sculptural creations.
