THE CREATIVE PROCESS: Grand Marais Art Colony Workshop
May 27

THE CREATIVE PROCESS: Grand Marais Art Colony Workshop

  • Grand Marais, MN

Martha and Dan have collaborated on projects, writing, and teaching for the past 15 years. Their interest in process and making has resulted in creative work across many disciplines, including architecture, apparel, landscape, and product design. Together, they will offer instruction in what all of these media have in common—the creative process.

Students are invited to produce creative work across multiple design disciplines including two-dimensional, architectural, textile, clothing, or furniture projects. The focus will be on examining, documenting, and developing each student’s individual creative process. Daily individual and group critiques and a final review will be included.
