Anni Albers said "our tactile experiences are elemental" and that playful exploration of materials is essential to "regain a faculty that was once so naturally ours." Working with a wide variety of materials—paper, cardboard, foil, sticks, buttons, pebbles, seeds, wire, fibers, and more—we will, in Albers words, "group them, cut them, curl them, mix them, finally perhaps paste them, to fix in a certain order." To emphasize the tactile, we'll work with neutrally colored materials, discovering the pleasures of contrasting textures.

The resulting exploratory collage will revitalize our sense of touch and lead to a deeper appreciation for the elemental importance of materials as a starting point in any artistic medium.
