Cherished Moments: The Art of Visual Memoir
Saturday, October 3, 1-5 pm.
Location: North Dallas
What is a Visual Memoir? It’s an artistic expression that celebrates life through personal stories. Technically it is a mix-media collage created on an 8 x 10″ canvas board.
What makes this program special is the focus you’ll bring to one special cherished moment. Everyone has special memories that they want to preserve. This workshop – we actually call it a play-shop – will take you through a process of connecting with a cherished memory expressed through a photograph that you will bring. The picture will become the foundation for your visual memoir canvas board to which you will add words, embellishments, ephemera and other collage-type materials – all expressions of the story your cherished memory conveys.
We’ll begin the journey connecting over tea and light snacks, followed by an introduction to the art of visual memoir, the materials and techniques available. Your heirloom creation will be guided by your cherished memory, the picture and mementos you brought and the art and facilitation skills of your hosts. When your visual memoir is complete, everyone will share about their cherished moment and the experience of preserving it.
Registration price includes the materials fee.
