Materially Reconsidered

July 21, 2019 – July 27, 2019

Jane Wells Harrison and Jerry Jackson

This mixed media workshop allows students to expand their artistic expression by experimenting with unconventional materials and techniques. Along with collage and paint, you will investigate non-traditional materials such as wax and sheetrock mud. Additional materials include soft ground stains, dry natural pigments, and oil pigment sticks to enhance your designs. Processes included are additive and subtractive methods that enable the artist to create rich layered imagery. Open to all skill levels.


Jane Wells Harrison holds an MFA in painting and drawing from East Carolina University. Harrison is the former director of Visual Arts at Caldwell Community College and has taught at Shakerag Workshops, Pocosin Arts, Penland School of Crafts, and East Carolina University. Prior residencies include Vermont Studio Center and multiple Penland Winter Residencies. Her work can be found in the Gregg Museum of Art and Design and Racine Art Museum.
