3-Week Mini-Series

A Note from Marney about this Brand New Mini-Series:

I’ve always been fascinated by creating worlds.  During the pandemic, I began making pictures about imaginary interior spaces to explore the inner worlds we create when we can’t leave home.

I call them StoryWorlds: pictures illustrated with very short stories….you can see some of them here to get a flavor. (I’ve posted some Interiors and Exteriors…coming soon are magical vehicles and a series of mysteries a la whimsical Sherlock Holmes…yes, my creativity is doing cartwheels!)

These new StoryWorlds have helped me dance on my creative edges and boogie out of my comfort zone.  Doing something brand NEW has brought such a spark to my life and helped me reach mysterious corners within my own inner art.  It’s a wonderful thing to let loose and create from a place that feels beyond what we know.

Imaginary places and spaces are the ideal subject to help shake loose the borders of our creativity.

Come join me in a whimsical process to create your own!

For 20 years, when I’ve taught classes through Artella, it’s usually because I’m learning something on my own and am inspired to share it.  So that’s exactly what I’m doing here….inviting you to dive into StoryWorlds together….yours, mine and ours!

In this three week symposium whimsyposium, I’ll be guiding a live process of creating worlds through words and art. You can create in any media or style you like…it’s all about the magic of the process and what you might find there.

Come join me in the edges.  Try something new.  Be clueless and wide-eyed about where it will take you.

This sweet 3-week whimsyposium is designed to take us all to a place where our creativity makes us gasp. And to do it in the spirit of wild play, and in the company of great love.

More details about the Storyworlds Whimsyposium:

* The Mini-Series includes 3 live classes and weekly assignments.  This is a go-at-your-own pace program in a very relaxed and fun environment. It’s the Summer of Play…no stress allowed! 

* Each gathering takes place on Zoom, with 2 hours to explore creating worlds through words and art.   Bring things you can write and draw with — markers, crayons, colored pencils, and lots of paper.

* No experience is needed. If you think you can’t draw a straight line, your curvy lines will be right at home!

* Can’t attend every week? No problem! All sessions are recorded so you can fully absorb the material later, and still be inspired by all the different artwork created by the group.

The StoryWorlds Whimsyposium is part of Artella’s Summer of Play, with fun playshops scheduled throughout July and August.  Artella will be taking a hiatus this Fall, so I wanted plan plenty of things to tide us all over. 🙂

This is all happening right before I’m going to New York for the Off-Broadway run of my new musical, and my 50th birthday is in the mix, so I’ll be filled with lots of dream-making pizazz this summer… more than enough to share! I would love for you to join me in any or all of these vividly playful circles!
