Transferring Memories


Date:  November 23, 2019

 Time: 10:00 - 3:00 p.m. 

*****CLASS FILLED*****

I have a lot of original photographs from my family that I wanted to transfer into an art piece. I decided to transfer these pictures into a small book and make it a permanent photo album in honor of my mother and family.  In this class you will learn to transfer an original photograph, wash the background page with color, add collage materials, acrylic paint and gesso application.  You'll also collage the front and back of your book to keep it always as a wonderful memory of your loved photographs.  This piece was featured in Somerset Studio Magazine, 2018 Spring issue.   

Whimsical Faces


Date:  November 25, 2019

Time: 9:00 - Noon

 *****CLASS FILLED*****

  • This class will concentrate on  learning to draw and paint whimsical faces.  Within the time frame  you will experiment with unusual  face structures, drawing, flesh tones, acrylic paint application , use of coordinating colors and design. These faces are created for journaling and book arts, but can easily  be transferred to a canvas or wood  panel  for display.   You will be able to journal around your faces and/or figures.  This is a  monthly continual learning class you are free to  step into at any stage. Class continues 12/9/19, register for one or more each month. 

Capturing the Essence


Date: December 14, 2019

Time: 10:00 - 3:00 p.m.

*****CLASS FILLED*****

You’ll enjoy a paint and collage format while finding ways to capture the essence in your work. Essence is the intrinsic nature or indispensable quality of something, especially something abstract that determines its character. Using this method you will find, from the start it will be far easier to complete the collage process itself. Instruction will be given in collage, painting and methods to create an intuitive edge to sharpen your personal style. Techniques will be instructed in collage, acrylic paint, coordinating colors, dry brushing, medium application, stenciling and design.
