I taught a new class called Composing With Line. It combines some techniques that I teach in my Slice and Insert Improv class with some new techniques as well as design exercises and lots of good information on designing with lines. It's hard to test a full five day class, so the students were sort of guinea pigs for me. They were awesome to work with and were also willing to give me feedback on pacing and the activities we did during the week. I'll be going back to Asilomar in 2017.
I'm pretty excited about the five-day class concept and I'll be teaching Composing With Line again in this format this August at Madeline Island School for the Arts. It will be my first time there too, but I have a feeling the experience is going to be just as great. The setting is different, but just as beautiful and inspirational. There's something pretty awesome about learning and working in a beautiful place. It's like you can relax into your work and absorb not only the surroundings but the opportunity to learn and create. Look where I'll be.
It looks to me like it's definitely worth the trip.
