FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Heritage University Hosts Expeditionary Artists Workshop
Toppenish, WA — Maria Coryell-Martin , an artist who travels on scientific expeditions to capture scenes from polar and glaciated regions of the world, will present her work during lectures and drawing workshops at Heritage University March 26-27, 2014.
Coryell-Martin of Seattle, WA works in the tradition of traveling artists as naturalists and educators. Her expeditions have taken her to Alaska, Canada, Greenland, and the Antarctic Peninsula. In the field, she sketches with ink and watercolor, and collects multimedia recordings to build her “palette of place”, a record of experience, climate and color. She developed this work into studio paintings for exhibit as well as presentations and workshops for audiences of all ages to cultivate observation, scientific inquiry, and environmental awareness.
The free, hands-on workshops where Coryell-Martin will lead participants through a series of observational drawing practices, will be held over two days at Smith Family Hall located in the Arts & Science Center on Heritage University’s main campus in Toppenish. They are scheduled as follows:
Wednesday, March 26: 10:00-11:15 a.m.; 1:30-2:25 p.m., and 3:20-4:45 p.m.
Thursday, March 27: 10:00-11:15 a.m.; noon-1:00 p.m., and 1:30-2:45 p.m.
The workshops are open to the public. Space is limited and reservations are required. For more information or reservations, contact Carolyn Nelson at (509)865-8546 or email email@example.com.
