(Not a) Conference DocuZine

In early October 2023, I had the pleasure and incredible good fortune to meet with artists, educators and advocates from all around my state (Oregon), for a (Not a) Conference. This group had been meeting for nearly 2 years virtually to discuss our experiences, dreams, and needs within the arts education professional field. For many of us, the October gathering was the first chance to meet in person.

These are our thoughts and reflections documented in digital zine form.
Note: as of November 13, 2023, this zine is still a work in progress and aspects may change (probably will).

If you were a participant in this gathering and would like a printed version of this zine, let me know!

Watercolor class at OCCC Fall 2022

Students will learn and practice skills in watercolor painting. We’ll practice using different tools and techniques to create layering effects for depth in subjects inspired by nature, and we’ll focus on skills for painting outdoors or in a travel journal. Over the 4 weeks, we’ll add techniques to build up to one or two final paintings, per student’s choice. Class studio time includes group reflection and instructor support and feedback to improve skills. Materials list provided; materials are available from instructor (includes material fee).
