This is a Drawing and Painting Class being offered twice a year for those that want discover the power and peace of drawing as a form of meditation. We will look at the differences in our drawing techniques using our brain’s ability to process what we see. We have a creative side and an analytical side. In this class we strengthen both sides through a series of exercises designed to give the students confidence and strong skills in their ability to draw what they see as well as express themselves creatively. This is a serious drawing class and will be limited to 10 students. Bring your own journal or sketch pad. We will also be practicing watercolor techniques.
This 2-day project covers several skills in one class. The project will be a door crown to set above a favorite passageway in your home. Students learn how to use a jigsaw, melt glass, mosaic, and beaded mosaics to create an extraordinary piece of art. We use several different adhesives, tessarae, tools and more. Students may bring special tokens or jewelry but everything else will be provided.
Potluck and homemade bread.
I can’t help but be a little giddy about this art form.
In this class we learn the art of mosaicking with beads. This adds a new level of texture and charm to our mosaic pieces. Our substrate will be bottles but this method of application can be used in many different disciplines. I provide all materials you will need to complete your project though you are welcome to bring any special charms, jewels or trinkets. We learn about the best new adhesive and techniques for application that will change how you create art. Since discovering this method it has become a favorite of mine and my students. Pull out all those great beads you have in your drawers and come join the fun.
