Someone once said it's important to learn one new thing everyday. We agree. It doesn't matter whether that one new thing are some words in French, aspects of art history, tips on how-to write a blog, suggestions on how to improve your novel, or frank advice on how to get published.
Book Passage in Corte Madera offers classes on a wide assortment of topics including learning a language (French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and German), art instruction and art history, and especially writing and getting published. We are proud of these programs, which we believe are unique among bookstores. Here are a couple of upcoming classes we thought you would like to know about.
Lindsay Whiting - Living into Art: Journeys in Collage
1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Lindsay Whiting shows the Sonoma Collage Studio method—a process in which artists create collages and then hang them up to engage with the work. It provides a direct and powerful way of approaching your inner world and imagination by combining the art of collage with the art of dialogue. The class format is hands-on practice using magazines, calendars, and images. Whiting has six years of experience in collaging at the Sonoma Collage Studio. She is the author of Living into Art: Journeys Through Collage. New & continuing students are welcome!
Kathi Kamen Goldmark & Sam Barry - The Lifecycle of Your Book: From Inspiration to Publication
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
