Idyllwild Arts has a long history of offering outstanding ceramics programs, with such renowned faculty as Fred Olsen, Shiro Otani, Susan Peterson, and Maria Martinez among others. In recent years, Hot Clay faculty has included Ingrid Lilligren, Lesley Baker, Tom Bartel, Mary Kay Botkins, Lisa Clague, Cynthia Consentino, Patrick Crabb, Debra Fritts, Rosette Gault, Arthur Gonzalez, Glenn Grishkoff, Martha Grover, Stephen Horn, Jeff Irwin, Paul Lewing, Joe Molinaro, Lisa Orr, Terry Rothrock, Esther Shimazu, Neil Tetkowski, Geoff Wheeler, and Lana Wilson.

OVERVIEW • Hands-On Workshops and Open Studios

Exploring the figure using bodycast molds as the foundation for expressive handbuilding,as well as demonstrations and hands-on practice in creating and utilizing a multiple-part mold in developing a realistically proportioned, yet highly personal character in clay, will encourage artists to bring their stories and experiences to the figure. Seeking and gathering inspirational objects to mold or model, artists will develop meaningful, symbolic elements for embellishing the figure. Surface treatments such as terra sigillata, stains, slip dip fabrics, sprig molds, and stamps, along with techniques to alter facial features, create hairstyles, and costumes will be explored. A variety of cold surface paint and encaustic treatments will enhance stained and fired sculptures. This workshop is designed for advanced beginners and up.

• Demonstrations and lectures presented by all faculty

Materials: A complete materials list will be sent upon registration.

• Critiques and feedback

Tuition: $680 Lab fee: $95

• Exhibits of faculty work

Enrollment limited to 12 students.

Explore innovative techniques and concepts in the workshop of your choice. Lectures and demonstrations are scheduled to allow participants in all workshops to attend. We emphasize an open studio with a great deal of crossover during each week’s workshops. Artist receptions for the faculty exhibit are planned June 25 and July 2.

Linda Ganstrom has been working in figurative ceramics for over three decades, creating a ceramic version of magic realism from her vocabulary of bodycasting techniques combined with hollow forming and modeling embellished with a collage style costuming created from sprig molds.

Six-day session

June 24–30

We’ll kickoff the workshop by exploring a variety of glaze resist techniques, other ways of enhancing surface, and loading the kiln for a soda firing. The remaining days will revolve around taking wheel thrown forms and altering them by a number of methods: paddling, faceting, darting, cut and join, etc. Our mantra will be “paying attention to detail”. Bring bisqueware suitable for a cone 10 firing for the first day’s soda experience – and fall in love with the subtleties and variation this firing method adds to clay. Discussions to include topics such as how one researches ideas to maintaining a healthy relationship with clay over the long haul. This workshop is designed for intermediate to advanced ceramists.

July 1–7

Course # AACR ØØB1

Six-day session Have you always wanted to know what goes into a glaze? How to make glazes less runny, more fluid, stop crazing, more matte, more glossy, or the color you REALLY wanted? Want more interesting textures and surfaces that enhance them? How to use layering of texture/slip/washes/glaze to make richer surfaces? How to make laser-printer decals? This workshop will give you a solid start on the methodology and science (both kitchen chemistry and the other kind…) that you’ll need to make your own unique glazes. We’ll work primarily at cone 6 in oxidation, and at some higher temperatures, too. All participants will get a free copy of HyperGlaze software to keep, so please bring a laptop (Macintosh or Windows) to use while learning about glaze calculation. At the end of the week, if there’s time while the kilns are cooling, we’ll have a tool day: learn to make your own tools for clay and textures. Materials: A complete materials list will be sent upon registration. Tuition: $680 Lab fee: $75

Enrollment limited to 9 students. Richard Burkett has over 40 years of experience

Course # AAJW ØØB

One-week session In this class, students will learn how to etch various metals to create custom imagery in metal. Through the exploration of a variety of resists and alternatives of the toner resist process, students will create etched metal that can be used as the basis for fabricated designs.

Charity Hall, work in progress

Examining the Brooch Charity Hall June 24–28

The instructor will discuss the appropriate kinds of artwork for etching and create small, simple designs using patterned paper and other images from various sources. That artwork will be developed into various resists for the etching process. Instruction will be given for both table etching and spray etching.

The brooch is a unique element of personal expression that can encompass an endless array of form and style; it can be narrative or ornamental, simple or complex. In this fabrication-intensive class, we will create multiple brooches, exploring a variety of setting methods that can be used to set found objects, stones, enamels, other pieces of metal, etc.

Students will etch samples using copper, brass and nickel alloys at various depths: shallow, deep and through. Deeply etched dies will be used to roll print onto metal and other materials. The instructor will demonstrate making copper/silver bi-metal that can be etched and then used to create fabricated pieces. The instructor will also demonstrate several patinas: black, brown and red patina on copper and copper clad bi-metal.

Course # AAJW ØØD

One-week session Anything can and should be made into jewelry. Sometimes all it takes is a sideways movement from a traditional technique to incorporate unusual materials. Rather than focus on why certain materials/objects won’t work as jewelry let’s make them work. We will discuss formal fabrication techniques, cold connections and adhesives as a springboard to using non-traditional materials as ornament. A focal point will be using concrete in jewelry applications but don’t stop there. Bring anything and everything you would be interested in making wearable. Is jewelry for celebrating and flaunting the precious? What is precious and why? Can the mundane be precious if treated as such? This is a class in thinking, experimentation and saying “yes” – if you conceive it, you can make it. This is an advanced beginner/intermediate class. A basic knowledge of soldering and hand tool use is required. Materials: A complete materials list will be sent upon registration. Tuition: $680 Lab fee: $55 (Includes the use of specialized

tools and some consumable materials – solders, fluxes, sandpaper, etc.) Students should bring their own metals and hand tools – but they must be clearly marked.

Course # AAJC Ø1

Three-day session Deborah Jemmott, Ripples Spoon

Creating dramatic focal elements for necklaces is both challenging and lots of fun. In this workshop, we will explore a variety of approaches to making “statement” focal pieces, including framing devices, the use of multiples and the development of themes.

Dimensional Forming Sinking, Stretching & Forming Metal Deborah Jemmott July 16–20

Course # AAJF Ø2

One-week session There is very little as satisfying as hammering on metal. The trick is knowing where and how to hammer to achieve the results you want! We will spend the week exploring how to control and create dimensional forms in metal. Sinking, stretching and forming (synclastic and anticlastic), dapping, and fold forming will be some of the techniques we will use to create interesting dimensional forms. We will also explore a variety of ways to put pieces together, including soldering as well as a variety of cold connections.

Art Clay Copper will be the primary material used in building our focal elements. It’s a wonderful medium for creating gorgeous jewelry at a fraction of the cost of silver metal clay. It consists of tiny molecules of copper, an organic binder and water. It works easily with simple hand tools and fires quickly in a kiln.

Deborah Jemmott, Power with Grace

Students will have the opportunity to create finished work or to focus on technique alone and create samples to inspire future work.

A variety of construction and decorative techniques will be covered in this workshop including texturing, carving and appliquework with copper metal clay, drilling, riveting, preserving paper elements, and pearl setting.

Instruction will be given for students at all levels of experience, however this class is best suited for students who have some metalworking experience. Solder experience would be helpful. Materials: A complete recommended supply

With just a few basic tools strapped to our belts, we’ll don our expedition gear as we set out to bend, hammer, form, solder and explore various techniques in working with metal to unearth a soldered metal box and jewelry to go in it. Not your typical metalsmithing class, this expedition is designed to show you how to take readily accessible materials and tools to create totally original pieces As we set out on our journey together, freshfaced and eager, we will employ various wire wrapping and wire soldering techniques to create a three-part piece of jewelry that can be worn as a necklace with interchangeable pendants, as a triple-wrapped bracelet, or separated as a necklace and a bracelet. I will share with you my favorite tricks in my archeologist’s bag to create box pendants, found objects bezels and housings pendants, not-your-momma’s-wire wrapped pendants, link making techniques, and more. We will incorporate the found treasures from your digs to showcase their inherent beauty or transform them from plain to museum-worthy. On the final leg of our metalsmithing expedition, we will construct a metal box to place the pieces of jewelry in. We will explore all metal boxes as well as mica-windowed boxes that allow a filtered peek of the contents within. Whether you like bright and shiny or aged and patina’d, you will unearth treasures aplenty in our metal-smithing expedition together. Materials: A complete materials list will be sent

July 20–22

Course # AAMS Ø2

Three-day session Like many artists and crafters, it’s been an uphill battle to get going on that dream you envision. You’ve attended classes and workshops, read books and magazines. You’ve accumulated a lot of techniques and ideas and perhaps a lot of artwork but you’re still not where you want to be. Chances are you’ve never had the opportunity or taken the time to learn how to become a success at your passion. Lesley will take you by the hand, step-by-step, to help you get going, providing the tools and the guidance you need to create your future as a successful artist. In ASAP (Artist Success Action Plan) you will discover Lesley’s proven practices and techniques for: finding time, creating focus, creating mental and physical space, getting rid of your big “but”, creating courage, giving yourself permission, creating balance, finding your voice/style, overcoming perfectionism, curing ‘bright shiny object’ syndrome, setting goals, self-motivation, putting yourself out there, finding your audience, building your following, and making money with your art. ASAP consists of eight modules, plenty of worksheets and lots of handouts and resources, assembled and ready for you to use in class and serve as your handbook (over 100 pages!) at home. We won’t be making any art, just making art and success possible. There’s a lot to cover in this fast-paced class. You will make a great start on each module in class and leave with complete understanding of how to fully complete the program on your own.

Music, nature and the visual arts have long found inspiration in each other, not only in the experience of these worlds, but in the systems of pattern and rhythm that each embrace. In this three-day workshop we will draw our inspiration from both the visual language found in the Idyllwild landscape and in small pieces of music as we create artist books. We will learn some low-tech printing techniques (pochoir and rubbing), make models of fourto-five book structures (single and double section bindings, accordion-folded structures, a stacked folio binding, and a layered “carousel” structure), and look at a variety of artist books for strategy and inspiration. You will take away at least one completed book project combining a system of marks derived from the natural world and inspired by music. Some experience in the visual arts or bookmaking is helpful. Materials: A complete materials list will be sent upon registration. Tuition: $490 Lab fee: $25 (Includes pre-cut parts to 4–5 book

structures, extra paper for individual projects, adhesives and inks.) Enrollment limited to 15 students. Barbara Tetenbaum is a visual artist whose work – directly or indirectly – explores the act of reading.

Session I

June 28–29: Through the Looking Glass Lightboxes You remember Pandora and how she released all the rotten things in the universe, all because she got a little curious. Well, if only Pandora had a little peephole or keyhole to check out the innards of that nasty ol’ box…think of the grief she could have saved us all. She would have looked and said, “Gee! I really don’t want to open that!”, and thus we would all be spending our time in Tahiti drinking whatever they drink in Tahiti. In this class, we are going to put things right and create secret boxes or chests that can be previewed using keyholes and/or lenses. Not only that but we will illuminate the interior with lighting to make that mysterious space all the more revealing. On the exterior the chests will be adorned using found objects and the process of assemblage. On the interior students will create interesting realms to view, combining assemblage with collage. They can be places filled with secrets, dreams, or fears… locked away for safekeeping. Enrollment limited to 20 students.

detritus to incorporate into artwork. Seems like an activity worthy of guidance or protection. In fact I recall one instance where I was traveling in Oaxaca, Mexico, in a large van with ten or so students. On the side of the road we passed a large dumpsite filled with oxidized goodies…and all of a sudden everyone in the van started oohing and ahhhing. The driver looked a bit bewildered, and wondered what in the world a bunch of gringos would find so interesting about an orange-ish/red heap of metal. Little did he know that to us, it was as if we came across the Holy Grail. The possibilities of creation were endless. In this class, we are going to create a found object patron, saint or deity that will aid in our artistic endeavors of finding and re-creating from discarded things. Using some sort of structure to build on (such as an iron, a shoe, a phone, a shadow box…just about anything), we will create a place for our effigy to watch over our undertakings. This shrine will be filled with all sorts of unusual elements as adornment but will also serve as a place to add future bits of randomness. Enrollment limited to 20 students.

Hopi Baskets play an integral role in the life and ceremonies of the Hopi people. From dances and weddings to giving thanks and appreciation, the uses of baskets at Hopi are many. The exquisite baskets that are woven by Hopi women come in three distinct styles and techniques. The coiled plaques made at Second Mesa are the subject of this workshop. This is a rare opportunity to work with Hopi elder Griselda Saufkie from the village of Shungopovi, Second Mesa. Students will learn the techniques of making and incorporating design into a coiled plaque basket. They will learn how the yucca and galleta grass are gathered and prepared for texture and color, and each student will then design and create a plaque basket. In addition, Griselda will bring prepared yucca to create Hopi sifter baskets. This is a one-day process, so a student may choose to learn this technique in addition to the coil technique. Materials: A complete materials list will be sent upon registration. Tuition: $680 Lab Fee: $45 (Includes prepared materials and

the use of tools in class.) Enrollment limited to 8 students. Griselda Saufkie lives on the Hopi Reservation in Arizona. She began making baskets upon initiation, when she was about 12 years old.

Course # NANW ØØ Course # NANW Ø1

One or Two-week session Students will have the opportunity to learn the art of weaving from Master Navajo Weaver, Barbara Teller Ornelas, originally from Two Grey Hills and Newcomb, New Mexico, and her sister Lynda Teller Pete. While instructing and demonstrating, Barbara and Lynda will share their family’s personal weaving stories and experiences, allowing participants a chance to view the world of Navajo weaving. According to Navajo oral tradition two holy people, Spider Woman and Spider Man, introduced weaving to the Navajo. Spider Man constructed the first loom, which was composed of sunshine, lightning, and rain; and Spider Woman taught the people how to weave on it. Spider Woman was discovered by the Holy Twins, the culture heroes of the Navajo Creation Story, in a small opening in the earth surrounded by an array of beautiful weavings. Entering her dwelling, the Holy Twins descended a ladder made of yarn, whereupon Spider Woman offered them knowledge of the world of weaving. Beginners: Students will learn the traditional method of Navajo weaving and will begin weaving on Day 1 with a pre-warped, upright Navajo loom. The majority of the week will be spent designing and learning how to weave a 12” x 16” rug. There will be a lesson on warping a loom later in the week. Beginning weavers may enroll for the full two weeks or in the first week only. Intermediate: Students will learn more advanced weaving techniques and more intricate patterns, and the rug may be any size. Students who have begun a rug in this workshop in previous summers may bring their rugs to complete, or may begin a new rug. Intermediate students must bring their own loom and it must be set up for weaving before class begins. Alternately, they may order a pre-warped loom (when they register) to work on if they prefer. Intermediate students (those who have taken this course before or have had previous basic training in Navajo weaving on an upright loom) may enroll for the full two weeks or in the second week only.

ing to use a pre-warped loom, which must be ordered at the time of registration, the lab fee is $45.) Enrollment limited to 10 students per week. Barbara Teller Ornelas is best known for her Navajo “tapestry” weavings (95–120 weft threads per inch). She has set several records with her weavings: she has won Best of Show at the Santa Fe Indian Market twice; she established a new record in 1987 by selling a weaving for $60,000 that she and her sister Rosann Lee made; and she has woven the largest tapestry-style Navajo weaving on record. Barbara is a fifth generation weaver who was raised near Two Grey Hills on the Navajo Reservation where her father was a trader. She has been featured in National Geographic, Business Week, Americana and Native Peoples Magazines, as well as numerous books. She has won dozens of awards, and has demonstrated and lectured at museums and institutions across the country and recently did a cultural exchange with the Peruvian weavers in Peru at the request of the US State Department. Barbara and Lynda have taught their popular workshop at Idyllwild Arts for 14 summers.

Lynda Teller Pete began weaving at age 6 and won her first major award at age 12 at the Gallup Ceremonial. She has gone on to win numerous awards for her weaving; recently winning the Best of Classification for Textiles at the prestigious 2011 Santa Fe Indian Market. Lynda collaborates with museums, schools and other art venues in Colorado and around the country to teach the public about Navajo weaving. She is also known as an accomplished beadwork artist and has won many awards for this work as well.

Amber George, The Nuts & Bolts

July 9–13

In this workshop the figure will be the subject matter, however the focus will be on improving drawing skills and seeing values and colors correctly and understanding their relationships to each other. Two days will be devoted to figure painting, and one to still life painting. There will be daily demonstrations emphasizing the big shapes and establishing their relationships correctly. This provides a springboard to adding additional information if the individual artist desires. We will address design and technique in a manner in which the individual artist may express themselves in a personal way. The student will experience many specific assignments, which helps to “get to the point a little more quickly.” Be ready to cover a lot of canvas and “learning through earnest mileage.” Students will receive plenty of one-on-one instruction and individual demonstrations as needed. This oil painting workshop is appropriate for all levels. Pastel, acrylic, and watercolor painters welcome, but must be well-versed in using their selected medium. Materials: A complete materials list will be sent upon registration. Tuition: $490 Lab Fee: $25 (Includes model fee and group

supplies) Enrollment limited to 15 students. Peggi Kroll-Roberts, award winning artist and teacher, was trained at Arizona State University and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. Peggi worked as a fashion and advertising illustrator before making the transition into fine art. Using intense color and value to accentuate her subject, she moved into fine art with a bold palette, a love for small paintings and a very loose style that achieves a lot with a few very energetic brush strokes. She prefers to suggest reality than render it. Inspired by her children she paints beach scenes and other aspects of their lives. She also breaks away from the conventional still life by painting scenes of cosmetics and the occasional coffee cup or slab of butter. Peggi’s work gives us a new appreciation of our own daily life.

Students will begin by building collages, looking for and finding relationships in imagery, light, and color patterns. Personalized compositions will become the springboard for a series of paintings to be done during the week. Working in various scales from large to very small, each student will become more sensitive to how color creates light, space, focal point and meaning within a painted composition. This exciting course will contextualize the most potent aspects of color within the history of painting, as well as the introduction of new concepts of collage process, composition, image development and the painterly processes. This class is designed for those who have some painting experience through professional painters. Oil paint is recommended. Materials: A complete materials list will be sent upon registration. Tuition: $680 Lab Fee: $15

Enrollment limited to 14 students. Marie Thibeault is a Professor of Art at California State University, Long Beach, where she teaches her much sought after color course for painters.

With an equal emphasis on formal skills and experimentation, exercises focus on trusting the intuition, learning to see inward and the practice of seeing oneself reflected in the world at large. The task becomes how do we see our authentic selves in the external environment and how do we make this vision manifest in painting? At core we will be asking more questions than delivering concrete answers, all the while working on creating paintings that are well-crafted and clearly rooted in individual expression. Using both representational and abstract elements is crucial in bringing to life a balanced view of the visual world and of one’s expression. Embracing and combining dichotomies, as a conceptual foundation, will be stressed as well as risk-taking-that is, working for the exploratory experience rather than creating nice tidy paintings that look good. Informal talks will include such topics as the discipline of being an artist, the rigor of professional practices with regard to career and how to remain true to a unique vision despite market trends. A visiting guest will give short presentation during the week as well. Participants must have basic painting skills, which include mixing paint and basic color theory, as well as basic drawing skills. Oil paint is recommended but acrylic paint is also acceptable. Materials: All participants will need to bring

a laptop and digital camera (or phone with camera), as well as their usual painting equipment. A list of suggested items to bring will be sent upon registration.

Drypoint Etching From the Landscape Brian Cohen June 24–26

Course # AADE ØØ

Three-day session Participants will complete an edition of prints from metal plates worked entirely without acids, using a traditional technique called drypoint. In drypoint, a student draws directly on a metal plate, creating lines and textures that will hold ink when printed. The drypoint medium is a wonderful means of making a drawing directly from observation into a print, without toxic chemicals or technical obstacles. The softness, variety, and warmth of the drypoint line is uniquely expressive among all printmaking media. We may further explore traditional means of altering the metal surface, such as roulette and engraving, and further explore materials to roughen the plate not usually associated with intaglio (metal plate prints), such as sandpaper, sandblasting, stamping, and hammering. Participants will also learn to lighten areas of the plate with the scraper and burnisher. The starting point for our imagery in this class will be the landscape surrounding the campus, though participants will continue to develop their plates in the studio, printing frequently to assess the development of the image. We will also emphasize the skills of hand-wiping a plate before printing, and will explore variations in color and collage printing. Materials: A complete materials list will be

Course # AAEM Ø2

Two-day session This workshop is an exciting introduction to the techniques involved in producing repeatable images while printing with wax. The purpose of this class is to expose participants to a wide variety of paints, papers, stencils and tools connected to the encaustic monoprint process and to give students access to varied printing techniques that will allow them to fine tune their prints. Students begin first by learning the basics and variables of the encaustic monotype: heat, paint, paper and pressure. They then progress to layering color and pattern using different types of stencils and masking in order to further refine their printed images. Students can expect to create numerous prints during this class encompassing a varied range of technical and intuitive process. Come discover how much fun monoprinting with wax can be. This class functions well for a wide variety of skill levels in printing, but some previous experience working with encaustic is helpful. Materials: A complete materials list will be sent upon registration. Tuition: $335 Lab Fee: $80 (Includes all paints, papers and

tools. Students will be given an allotment of a variety of papers to work with, and more paper will be available for purchase if you find that you are a very fast printer.) Enrollment limited to 10 students. David Clark’s encaustic print work has drawn critical acclaim for its graphic style and fineness of execution. He exhibits nationally, showing his work in numerous solo and group shows including the 33rd Bradley International Print and Drawing Exhibition and Aqua Art Miami.

David is currently preparing for an upcoming solo show of his prints at the Process Museum in Tucson, Arizona.

No previous art experience is necessary to participate, only a willingness to learn. If you have a design or photo in mind, please bring it to the workshop and we will learn ways of transferring the image to the block. The image size we will be working with will be 6”x 8”.

Beyond Monotype Ron Pokrasso July 16–20

Course # AABM Ø2

One–week session, Begins at 1 p.m. July 16 Ron Pokrasso covers a wide range of techniques possible in the monotype process and continues through the use of collage, drawing, and multiple plate projects. Students will be encouraged to pursue their artistic vision using monotype as a mark making tool in combination with whatever other techniques are efficient and available. The notion of the “artist as an inventor” will be stressed as mixed media techniques open the door to limitless opportunities. The approach is energetic and open, as each student’s individual style will dictate the direction of the workshop. The program is non-toxic working with AKUA waterbased intaglio inks. Modifying, layering, mixing inks, finding color, use and abuse of mark-making tools, exploring the limits of paper, collage, chine colle and built up surface will all be discussed. Working with drawing materials, the optional integration of Solarplate, ImageOn, traditional intaglio plates, other matrices, and finishing prints as resolved and complete expressions, including solving issues after printing, are aspects of the workshop.

From Art Spiegelman’s Pulitzer Prize–winning Maus to Alan Moore’s The Watchmen, graphic narratives have a unique capacity to tell complex stories through the simple combination of rich visuals and text. They have become synonymous with bold, innovative storytelling far beyond superheroes and encompass memoir, historical fiction, journalism, and more. This course offers a balance between the hands-on and the theoretical, and will begin with discussions of several key graphic novels as well as an overview of this hybrid literary form. Students will then learn the necessary writing and artistic skills to turn their story ideas into a realized graphic novel extract. Welcoming both newcomers and those with experience, the course will examine each step of the creative process: scripting and narrative arcs; thumbnailing; pencilling; inking; scanning; and production. Students will then produce a short graphic novel extract, that they will be able to take with them in both hard copy and digital format.

This workshop will explore the art and craft of fiction, using a multitude of exercises to tap and enhance your own deep sources of creativity. If you have a vivid imagination, or if you are a storyteller who likes to embellish, or you want to look at your tales with a new perspective, the class will provide you with the tools to paint with words. Whether you are a beginner or are a prolific writer, you will walk away from this workshop with a better understanding of the structural elements that underpin all great stories. You will also be armed with new techniques for creating characters who come to life on the page, for creating vivid worlds with your words, and for how to keep generating story ideas. All levels of writer will be able to apply the lessons. While writing fiction is often about finding the truth of the story, come prepared to make stuff up. And to write! Class time will be about practicing what we learn—bring plenty of pens and blank notebooks. By the end of the week, everyone will have at least one well-honed piece of fiction presentable for public consumption. This workshop will meet from 9–noon each morning and again from 1–2pm in the afternoon for writing sessions. Tuition: $680 Enrollment limited to 12 students. Samantha Dunn is the author of Failing Paris, a finalist for the PEN West Fiction Award, and the bestselling memoir, Not By Accident: Reconstructing a Careless Life , as well as Faith in Carlos Gomez: A Memoir of Salsa, Sex and Salvation. Her work is anthologized in a number of places, including the short story anthology, Women on the Edge: Writing from Los Angeles, which Dunn co-edited. A winner of the Maggie Award for Best Personal Essay in a Consumer Publication, Dunn is a widely published journalist regularly featured in O the Oprah Magazine, the Los Angeles Times, and Ms., among others. A member of the Writers’ Guild, Dunn teaches in the UCLA Extension Writers Program and is program advisor for The Mark at PEN USA.

Course # AAWE Ø2

One-week session This workshop is for those just beginning and those whose work is well underway (and/ or stalled), for those writing memoir, personal essay, or any work of creative nonfiction. The instructor will help you to develop and craft your work, and we’ll study the elements that help writing to sparkle, including characterization, setting, voice, dialog and theme. Excerpts from published works will help to serve as inspiration, and five, ten, and fifteen minute exercises will jump-start your writing and offer guidance for your work. A portion of our workshop hours will be devoted to reading your work aloud, with feedback from both the instructor and your fellow students. You will also receive information on marketing and proposal writing (for longer nonfiction works). Our goal will be to complete a full essay and/ or chapter by week’s end. We’ll meet for four hours each morning, with afternoons devoted to individual conferences, writing and reading time. Tuition: $680 Enrollment limited to 10 students. Amy Friedman is the author of two memoirs, Kick the Dog and Shoot the Cat and Nothing Sacred: A Conversation with Feminism. She recently completed the memoir, Desperado’s Wife, and is the author of the long-running, world-wide syndicated newspaper for children, Tell Me A Story. She often performs her personal essays at Spoken Word venues in LA and has published hundreds of stories, columns and articles. Amy teaches creative writing at UCLA Extension, through PEN/USA and at the Skirball Cultural Arts Center.

Course # AAWP Ø2

One-week session This special week of poetry is open to anyone with an interest in writing poetry, following the long-held Idyllwild Arts tradition of bringing up to the mountain a diverse community of voices to enrich the conversation for all, from enthusiastic beginners to emerging and established poets. Five days of workshops, craft talks, readings, and lively discussion under the pines will focus on helping participants generate new work and explore literary styles and techniques. Faculty will rotate through workshop groups so that everybody will have worked intensely for two full sessions with each of the three faculty poets by the end of the week, writing new poems, receiving critique from faculty and peers, and being immersed in new and old perspectives. Close-critique of drafts and revisions will be balanced with larger propositions about the nature of poetry. Small class size will ensure that each participant receives individual attention and advice about his or her development as a writer. Our busy, rigorous schedule includes workshops from 9–noon, and craft talks by faculty and special guests from 1–3 p.m. On Tuesday evening, the faculty and special guests will read from their work, followed by a book signing; on Thursday evening, workshop participants are invited to read new poems from the workshops. Tuition: $680 Enrollment limited to 10 students per workshop group.

IDYLLWILD ARTS FOUNDATION The IAF is a non-profit corporation, founded (in 1946 as a summer center in the arts) on the premise that the arts provide a common language and that participation in the arts can not only enrich lives but can change lives. The Foundation now operates two programs: the Summer Program – in its 63rd year of providing classes in the arts for all ages and abilities, and the Academy – an independent boarding high school established in 1986 for students talented in the arts.
