Q+A: Greece: Color, Light, Form- a Destination Learning Experience with Monica Fogg
February 9 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
See light and color through the lens of ancient forms!
Monica Fogg will introduce and answer questions about this two-week destination learning program in Greece.
In her words:
“Travel is always a source of inspiration for me. Experiencing cultures and sites deepens my appreciation of diverse beauty. I am excited to have a wonderful group forming for a two-week fall adventure in Greece! Join our journey to Athens, Tinos and Santorini. Immerse yourself in a climate of light and form. Observe water, stone and structure in a fresh way through local culture, customs and history. Learn about the history of the color Blue. Witness ancient architectural forms, unique villages as well as mythological and symbolic imagery – sketching, photographing, or writing along the way.
This will be my third time leading a group to Greece to experience Color, Light and Form. It is a remarkable place and there are great adventures planned.”
Aiming to enhance creative investigation, Monica has developed Destination Learning Opportunities. These art travels enable one to explore in an inspiring setting. For some, these workshops may simply be an oasis in the middle of a busy life, a chance to unwind and re-direct. For others, it will be a chance to waken dormant skills. We hope that it will be the impetus for ideas that continue to develop long after the event is over.

“My personal work is informed and inspired by forms found in nature.I consider and experience the foundations of the earth as symbolic of the ‘grounding’ of spirit. Representation is distilled to form, movement, essence. The process is a dance between concept and emotion.” http://www.monicafogg.com/
