Enough about work. More importantly, let’s talk about play: one of the great ways we can find inspiration and actually do our work better (and perhaps more interestingly). We will place our perfectionism in a (well designed) jar on a shelf and be led through a few creative stretches using mixed-media collage with a focus on exploring play, mindlessness, and just starting the damn thing.

Ashley Mary is a Minnesota-based multi-disciplinary artist, with an MA in Graphic/Web Design from MCAD. Ashley’s work expands from studio practice to product/surface design and mural installations nationwide. Her studio work focuses on acrylic paintings and collage on paper. Thick textures, vibrant colors, graphic patterns, and organic and familiar shapes are her attempts to give attention to the unintentional and leave space to be surprised: exploring themes of play, balance, movement and curiosity. When not in work-mode, Ashley is often thrifting, running, and recently started to explore stain glass (keeping the bandage industry alive).

Campers — Gather: a pair of scissors, Markers (bonus point for colors!), alternative coloring tools like crayons or pencils, white blank paper, a magazine, and/or anything you’d be willing to cut up along with the collection of things in your swag bag – glue stick, paint and paper swatches.
