Jane Ingram Allen will teach a papermaking art workshop this summer at Sierra Nevada College, Incline Village, Nevada, on beautiful Lake Tahoe. The week-long workshop July 25-29 will be a fun opportunity to hone papermaking skills in Eastern and Western techniques and focus on eco-art with hand papermaking for outdoor and indoor installations using seeds in the handmade paper pulp to grow and change over time. For more information and to register for the workshop see the website at http://www.sierranevada.edu/academics/summer-art-workshops-2/Jane-Ingram-Allen/
Jane is happy to answer any questions by email or comments on this Blog. Jane’s email is info@janeingramallen.com

If you have never been to Sierra Nevada College Summer Workshops Jane can assure you that it is a fun and creative place with great opportunities for learning something new and making new contacts as well as creating some art of your own.  This will be the 3rd summer that Jane has taught at Sierra Nevada.  You couldn’t find a more beautiful and inspiring place for an art workshop, especially one centered on eco-art.

Jane just completed an eco-art outdoor public art installation in Lancaster, CA, with support from WEAD and working with the Lancaster Museum of Art and History.  Here are some photos of Jane’s Lancaster Eco-Quilt when it was installed on March 12 at Hull Park in Lancaster.  Keep checking this Blog for updated photos as the handmade paper quilt dissolves into compost and the wildflower seeds in the pulp sprout and how into a blooming bed of California golden poppies and California Blue Bells with white borders of Baby’s Breath and white poppies.  Jane will go to Taiwan for two environmental art projects April – June and will return to CA for the summer workshop at Lake Tahoe, July 25-29. She is ooking forward to a wonderful time at Sierra Nevada College Summer Workshops with a great group of congenial and creative artists.
