Mel Kolstad - Tiny Tiny Things, Part 1

Mel Kolstad is an artist, speaker, instructor and arts advocate who uses her art life to raise money, teach and protest.  As a printmaker, collagist and papermaker specializing in tiny art, Mel has participated in many artist residencies and teaches classes throughout Wisconsin.


Takeaways

1. Use your artwork to quietly talk about things that are important to you.

2. If you’ve never made paper I highly recommend. It’s like magic.

3. ATCs (artist trading cards) are great because: 1) it’s a great way to get unstuck, 2) it’s not a big commitment, and 3) there is no monetary incentive.
