Joan Fullerton

Contemporary Approaches to Mixed Media Collage

Sept 4-9, 2016 (Four Teaching Days)

Paint freely, find your own voice, and be happy in the process! Give yourself the gift of more imaginative art. Experience inspiring demonstrations and lectures, and get feedback and support while exploring new concepts.  Let’s discover deeper meanings to the intricacies of shape, line and color. You’ll learn to coax hints of reality from an abstract background, how to control values and colors for emotional emphasis, and how to suggest rather than delineate. You’ll explore working intuitively, responding to what shows up; working in a series; and will learn the mixing and utilizing of neutrals for softer, more ethereal abstracts. We’ll touch on notions of confidence, procrastination, vulnerability, curiosity, courage, play, metaphor, symbolism, and competition. You will create compelling art not only by focusing on technique, but you will discover your unique "content". Beginning students will find encouragement and confidence, while more advanced students will benefit from Joan's insightful solutions to their artistic challenges. Be prepared for a light-hearted imaginative experience!

Joan Fullerton grew up on the eastern plains of Wyoming where the vastness of landscape and the slow pace of rural life, allowed contemplation of the nature and solitude necessary for art making. While raising 3 children, she studied watercolor with Edgar Whitney, Frank Webb, Charles Reid and other nationally known watercolorists.

In 1985 she returned to college and achieved BFA and MFA degrees in painting from the University of Wyoming. She was a college art instructor at Laramie County Commw1ity College from 1990 to 2003 in Cheyenne, WY. In 2003 she made the leap of faith to relocate and paint full-time in Taos, NM. Following several successful exhibitions, during her 8 years in Taos, Fullerton made her mark and established her reputation as a well-known and respected artist and teacher. A recent move to south Denver, she is now hosting workshops in her studio and teaching across the nation.

Her work has been in galleries, juried shows and museums since the early 70's and she has shown internationally in Italy and Japan. Her work was recently published in the 2010 edition of Open Studios Press and the Society of Layerists in Multi-Media book, Visual Journeys, Art of the 2 1st Century. Her memberships include, SLMM, TNWS, and ISEA and she is a Golden Paints Artist Educator.

Joan has instructed all levels of experience and ages of painters. Students in Fullerton's classes thrive in the atmosphere of her informative and relaxed classes. It is her belief that people are open to learning and creativity when they are having fun. She is adept at demonstrating a multitude of techniques. Beginning students will find encouragement and confidence, while more advanced students will benefit from her insightful solutions to their creative challenges.
