"Batik Essentials"
January 31, 2022
 

Students will learn how to create a traditional batik artwork, using a step by step process, as well as how this art-form originated. Students will create two batik artworks on muslin fabric, which can later be made into hangings, pillows, scarves, or framed. Judy will start the workshop with a full demonstration of the process, along with step by step instructions. Students should arrive with an idea or two in mind for their work. Perhaps a flower, an animal, a bird, or a tree or just a pattern. Keep in mind designs need to be bold and relatively simple. Please contact Judy Lyons at lyon5028@verizon.net if you have any questions. All art materials provided, supply fee $15.

"Cold Wax and Oil"
February 17-18, 2022
 

A 2-day workshop where we will work using cold wax medium with oil paints and oil sticks. Color and texture are the focus of this exploratory workshop. Cold wax is blended with oil paint that provides translucent to opaque layers, allowing you to push, pull, roll, or etch the surface through many layers, using blending techniques to create expressive impasto surfaces and abstractions. We will work with cradled panels and heavy watercolor paper.
