"Adding the "You" Factor to Your Paintings 2"
March 26-28, 2018

This workshop is all about making unique, personal, and creative paintings. We will explore options and strategies for you to try on that will include still life, figure, and landscape examples of each concept as well as a look at the art history behind it. Plan on bringing personal photos or sketches of subject matter that you love to paint or would love to paint. The subject will be the jumping off place – the real subject will be YOU. Our focus will be on seeing and thinking abstractly, crafting a beautifully designed painting, and finding and expressing that thing that is your own.

"Eco Printing"
April 16-17, 2018

Eco Printing is a process using leaves, flowers, fruits, vegetables and other natural materials to create amazing colorful prints on paper or fabric. Through a process of steaming or emersion, the natural tannins plants are printed onto the surface through pressure, contact, and a chemical reaction. This produces a wide-range of colors resulting in a never-ending surprise. No artistic experience is necessary to take this class - just the willingness to experiment, a love of surprises, and a joy for nature.
