Writing and the Visual Arts 2012 : Sneak Peek

So I am off to Fernie, BC today for the Fernie Writer's Conference.  My "Writing and the Visual Arts" workshop starts tomorrow and I'm looking forward to doing some amazing work both with the students (8-10yrs) and my co instructor.

Our theme this year is "Raiders of the Lost Arts: Ancient Aztec Legends" and we will be doing a number of projects including a great file folder book.

 We will also be making inchie book necklaces and key chains.

As well as Calendar stepping stones

and large Amate cutouts of Aztec stone sculpture.
My co instructor has lots of poetry, drama, and music planned.

I'll have the 'how to' on all these projects up on the blog later this week with some 'art in progress' photos. Looking forward to a great conference!
