The Sea, The Sea: Storytelling Prompts for Visual Artists
with Claire Obermarck

Wednesdays, Sept. 4, 11, 18, 2024 | 10:00 am – 11:30 am

  • Experience Level: All experience levels welcome.
  • Medium: All mediums welcome.
  • Materials List: Bring your own art supplies, sketchbook, notebook and pen.
  • Registration: Each student needs to enroll individually.
  • Location: Sedona Arts Center, Theatre Studio.

Storyteller Claire Obermarck presents The Sea, The Sea using her magical way of telling stories to stir new visual ideas for artists and their work.  Over the three sessions–sea myths, legends, and folklore will lead participants through whispered legends and uncharted waters, where The Sea holds both treasure and terror.  These tales remind the listener of the awe-inspiring power and the untamed majesty of the deep waters that surround us.

Claire will present different stories for each session. The elements of the story will be discussed among the group and the different ways the story can be interpreted visually, including exploring the use of symbolism.  Participants will then be encouraged to sketch, paint, journal or use any medium of their choice, to incorporate elements of the story into their own work.
