Dot Mandala class April 7

DOT MANDALA  class with Brandi Cooper (April 7th. 9:00 am – 12:00 pm) at the Goldmark Cultural Center: Artspace & Studios
Mandala in Sanskrit means a Circle. Dot painting originates from Aborigines in Australia. This technique of placing dots repeatedly, moving outward, is used to create the mandala. We will combine these two distinct art forms to construct the mandala on a 6×6 canvas board, which can be framed. The finished art piece looks complicated, but you will find how extremely easy it is.

Oil Painting Workshop for Adults with Chris Brandley

Morning Sweets

This workshop takes place in the beautiful, historic town of Grapevine, Texas September 16 & 17, 2016.

Our 2 days together will include step by step demonstrations, one on one individual easel time, and fun exercises to learn how to loosen up and create bold, colorful paintings.

I use the “Alla Prima” method of painting (working wet into wet) and I will teach you how to layer with transparent and opaque oils, and how to keep your paints from getting muddy. We will work on technique, color mixing, composition, light, and brush strokes. Students will learn to see “Impressionistically” and explore to ability to “suggest” rather than “render” the subject.

Come prepared to have a relaxing, fun-filled learning experience. This class is for all levels of painting from beginners to advanced! For more information and to register, click here.
