Students must bring: a notebook and a pen.
Bites from the Palette menu and a wine pairing will be included in the workshop.
Juliette Choné is a French visual artist who moved from Paris to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2015. After studying Art History, Juliette went on to receive her Art Professions Diploma in stained glass and a Visual Arts Postgraduate degree from Panthéon-Sorbonne University in Paris. An expert in stained-glass restoration, she has worked on famous French monuments like the Chartres Cathedral and royal Sainte-Chapelle. Juliette now focuses strictly on visual arts through her own creations, research and teaching. She has shared her work in more than 30 solo and group shows.
Juliette’s work, at the same time critical and poetic, questions the concepts of nature and culture, and more specifically, the limits between humans and nature, through the notion of non-separation and metamorphosis. Her art shows a world where boundaries tend to disappear and humans search for their lost animality.
Maw Shein Win is a writer, editor, and educator who lives and works in the Bay Area. Her poetry has appeared in many journals and several anthologies including MARY: A Journal of New Writing, Talking Writing, Poetry International, Cimarron Review, and others. She was an Artist in Residence at Headlands Center for the Arts and is a member of The Writers Grotto. Her collaborative book with paintings by artist Mark Dutcher, Ruins of a glittering palace, was published by SPA/Commonwealth Projects. Her poetry chapbook Score and Bone is on Nomadic Press. Her full-length collection Invisible Gifts: Poems was published by Manic D Press in 2018. Win is the first poet laureate of El Cerrito (2016 - 2018) and her forthcoming second full-length collection of poetry will be published by Omnidawn in Fall 2020.
