Come to the Coast – Anti-Art Camp – Build a Dream Machine, Paint with a Tesla Coil,
Hear Tales of Travel, Success and Failure from Real Artists Who Have Survived
A creative, cerebral and mystical experience awaits you on the Long Beach Peninsula, starting February 22 and lasting the weekend or an entire week. Learn amazing new skills from painting with a million volts of electricity to building a mystical dream machine to screen printing tricks from the best, from assemblage sculpture to podcasting and pie making.
World famous painter Dave Archer will be sharing the secrets of outer space and how he paints with a million volt Tesla Coil. He will also tell stories about creating art for star Trek – including the confederation logo, and singing in coffee houses with his best friend Janis Joplin back in North Beach in the early 1960s. Much can be learned from this wise elder who has seen the world showing his art, and he will dazzle you with his imported street organ, stories of the Beats, and a world of life experience.
We will gather around the fire at night and tell tales of road tripping with seasoned travelers and creative force Shane and Amy Bugbee, as they share stories of an America few ever witness. They have been compared to Hunter S. Thompson but with a mind based in reality, they kill the nostalgia romanticized by Jack Kerouac’s ‘On The Road’, and bring road stories back to gritty truth. The duo spent a year traveling the USA on only $180, they will share how to do it and show their collected video interviews with various artists, revolutionaries and others across the USA.
The dream machine was made famous by William Burroughs and Brion Gyson, it is used to seek the answers of the universe, have a mystical experience, and look into your soul. Some say no home should be without one as they produce alpha waves in the mind, aid in relaxation and improve brain function. Some say it’s like an acid trip without the drugs.
Other artists involved will teach you how to screen print from t-shirts to fine art, a Second City alumni will share the secrets of humor and show how to podcast in the new media world, there will be pie making, painting, crafting, music and more. All this in one location – the historic and renown arts mecca The Sou’Wester, a 100 year old lodge with a campground full of rental vintage travel trailers, nestled right on the beach of the Long Beach Peninsula. They are offering great rates for this event, and all of the classes, talks and workshops are absolutely free!
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the true underground and art making from brute to traditional, demonstrations and seminars are given by real working professionals who make a living as artists. Hear incredible stories from the lives of these brave and determined creatives about experiences that changed their lives, hanging on to one’s sanity, and the persistence required to make it on your own creativity.
Yes, you too can learn to survive and thrive as an artist. We can teach you how to quit your job, take back your life, and control your own destiny!
