Join Our Live FREE Mixed Media Webinar:
My Journey with Maps
With Jill K. Berry
An Exploration of Personal Geographies
Artistic Influences--Jill Berry
Date: Thursday, January 19, 2012
Starting Time: 1:00 P.M. Eastern Time
About the Webinar:
Personal Geographies is taking the craft market by storm
Join us on a journey you won’t soon forget! Author Jill K. Berry will share the defining moments (a McDonald’s restaurant map?) that led to her incredible love for all things cartographic and a profession as a mapmaker – of sorts. You’ll get a solid lesson in the different kinds of maps (demographic, geographic, historical, cultural, etc.) that influence her own work. Jill will illustrate how to use mapmaking as a storytelling device via her own work and that of her students and contributors to her book, Personal Geographies
. You’ll see examples of humorous and humorless, factual and agenda-driven, ornate and simple, psychological and memory maps. You’ll be dazzled by the beautiful full-color photos and you’ll be inspired to try your hand at mapmaking, too!
