  • 2019 Summer Arts - Rachel Meginnes

    The Artistic Pursuit

    June 24 - 28, 2019

    Medium: All Media
    Level: All Levels
    Tuition: $695
    Lab Fee: $95

    Artist, Rachel Meginnes, has designed this meaningful workshop to help students move beyond their understanding of technical proficiency to a deeper level of expression and creativity. While profound beauty results from honing one’s skills and becoming deeply familiar with materials, over time, such strong attachments to methods and media limit our full artistic potential. “Our identities become locked in position and we learn to conform rather than to inform our own ways of making.”

    This workshop uses your past artistic experience as a jumping off point for sustained creative growth and exploration. Through a series of daily exercises and prompts that include writing, reading, hands-on projects, and group discussions, Rachel will guide you through the process of strengthening your work while helping you develop a holistic understanding of your artistic self. You will leave class with the ability to dedicate yourself to a daily art practice and with the confidence to maintain momentum in the studio.

    Open to all artists of all levels who are eager to explore their inner motivations and inspirations. Students are invited to bring their favorite materials and media to work with for the daily class prompts. Please bring a willingness to share with others and a desire to unlock your creative capacity.

    Rachel Meginnes is an artist and educator committed to the idea that art creates more fulfilling lives. With 20 years of experience in the studio and classroom, Rachel finds that individual strength develops from the ability to dream, propose, commit, create, and share our work with others. She believes that the artistic process directly reflects our broader search for human success and enables us to generate the tools we need to thrive.

    Rachel has taught all ages and levels. She has operated her own business for the past 12 years and understands art from the perspective of artist, dealer, and buyer. Her current works, using discarded vintage quilts, may be found in corporate, museum, school, and private collections in the USA and around the world. Rachel holds a BA in art from Earlham College and an MFA in Fibers from the University of Washington. She currently lives and works in western North Carolina and was recently awarded a North Carolina Arts Council Fellowship in Craft.
