Class Description

In this mixed-media workshop with all-new projects, we will creatively respond on an instinctive level to a certain kind of beauty found deep within the intricate, complex, and micro-processes of nature. Cells, fungi, diatoms, amoebae, pollen and other fascinating natural forms will serve as innovative stimuli while we explore, invent and discover biomorphic worlds of our own design. Artists will come away with several artworks and samples using all kinds of engaging and inspirational techniques! All materials provided.

(Open to all experience levels; you do not need to have taken previous BIOMORPHIA workshops)
