Favorite Places

Maps are intriguing as an art form and as a vehicle for artistic expression. They are personal explorations of map language and imagined landscapes. Through satellite imagery sites like Google maps -- almost any place can be translated into an exquisite mixed media Cartographic Quilt. Name a favorite place. Is it in your city, your state, the USA or somewhere far away? In this class, you can design a cartographic map of a favorite location such as your residence or birth place. Discover the possibilities of creating a map from fabric, paint and thread! Using a fun and simple series of painted and collaged, mixed- media techniques, you will create the feeling or ingredients of a place. The instructor will guide you through a series of steps that will provide opportunities to learn about design while giving you the freedom to experiment within a structured framework.
Important Note: Because this class will require that students bring a map of their chosen favorite place, some pre-planning and communication with each student will be required so that each person brings a map that can be used in this workshop.
