Picturing the Wind
Wind is invisible--but can you make it blow across the page so that other people see and feel it? Let's make some collage art together and I'll show you how!
45 Minute Program
Publishers Weekly says about Picturing God: "Goring's creative, brightly hued collage work uses unexpected materials, such as iridescent shells, dried brush, sea glass, and fairy lights." The Twin Cities Pioneer Press says: "With poetic text and intriguing, handcrafted mixed-media collages and mosaics, this is a most inventive blend of images and words. Goring incorporates rocks, paper cutouts, tiles, string and fragments of unidentified things . . ."
Ruth will adapt her presentation to each audience's age range. Optimal audience size is 2-6 kids.
Suggested materials and tools:
Cardboard, paperboard, plywood, or canvas surface (any color)
Small pieces of fabric
Twigs, string or yarn, shells, gravel, ribbon, bottle caps
Pipe cleaners (or wire) and wire cutters
Brightly colored ceramic tile and hammer to break it with (kids who want to do this will be instructed on how to do so safely)
