workshop full

Play and experimentation are our priorities in this workshop for artists who love to work with papers in creating collages or any paper craft. We use acid free 100% cotton paper and water based acrylic paints and mediums to make letter size and larger sheets with a variety of methods. We will make and use our own stencils, tools for stamping, rubbing, sanding, mono-printing, direct painting, transfer printing, piercing, and layering, as well as uniquely textured papers using marble powders, ashes, earth pigments and pastes. Several kinds of transparent materials will also be made. All methods will be demonstrated along with discussions in color theory and contemporary ideas. Materials list, Materials fee for shared materials
All levels are welcome.

Exploring Abstraction

This class begins with guided exercises designed to open the mind to abstract concepts. Students will discover spontaneous ways to create dynamic marks and lines. There will be an emphasis on shape relationships and creating strong compositions. Prepare to have fun making stimulating work with a variety of materials. Development of individual vision will be encouraged. 

Open to all levels. Students may choose to work in oil or acrylic. 

We will start this class with a warm up collage exercise in acrylics with a limited palette. We will start painting the second day, beginning with another guided exercise on paper. Depending on personal choice, you can continue to work on paper or move onto canvas. Conversation will focus on paint application, developing organic abstract shapes, and composition. Students can choose to work in either acrylics or oil. I am an oil painter, and so, most familiar and in love with oil painting techniques.
