Creating Art in the Landscape
CB Wildflower Festival

Add to your calendar
Date: July 14, 9:00 am
Location: TBA
Details: The Art Studio of the Center for the Arts and Crested Butte Wildflower Festival team up to bring you a series of wildflower-inspired art classes to capture the essence of why Crested Butte is the Wildflower Capital of the World. Sign up for these classes through the Wildflower Festival's website or call 970-349-2571. Space is limited for all classes.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to get out on the trail and delve into a creative art workshop. During a moderate hike through the wildflowers, local artist, Ivy Walker, leads you in making temporary works of art in the landscape, much like well-known artist, Andy Goldsworthy. Choose stones, branches, and leaves, together with an assortment of art materials, such as mirrors, fabric, yarn, and decorative papers, to make temporary, sculptural artworks in the land. Bring a camera or phone to record your work and document what you've made with a lasting photograph. Need physical ability to be on and off-trail, crouching, standing, and sitting without a chair in the terrain. Instructor: Ivy Walker.

TIME
9:00 AM-12:00 PM

$65
 
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Ivy Walker creates temporary artworks in the land and documents these through photographs. She places handmade paper cut-outs or other art materials into the land to evoke a temporary, poetic presence. Her artwork explores 'the ephemeral' and how this quality, paradoxically, connects all life with the ‘Infinite’.

Walker has a Master of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she also taught Drawing and Art Foundations as a part-time lecturer. She received a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Printmaking from Colorado State University. She is also a Certified Nature-Connected Coach who incorporated creating art with transformational life coaching sessions in the landscape. Recently, she has shown work at Artcorps in Pueblo and in Denver at Redline Gallery. Her work is represented by Gallery 3 in Crested Butte. For more information, go to www.ivywalker.com.
