I'm a huge Halloween and Day of the Dead fan and love to decorate for the season. Each year I design a decorative piece of art for my walls. If you are a lover of this wonderful season I hope you will join me for this holiday wreath. You will be instructed in preparing your painting surface, designing a face, and acrylic painting. This wreath is an excellent way to hone your painting skills. You will also learn to attach your wreath and ribbon to your painting board. Once finished you will easily hang your wreath on your wall or door to welcome guests. All materials are furnished except the ribbon.

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.

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.
