Plus A Special Consultation Day Monday, September 28th – $125:

On Monday, September 28th, You will have the opportunity to get valuable feedback including how to incorporate some of the Mixed Media processes into your ongoing body of work. We’ll discuss various and inventive ways to hang the work. I’ll be showing a PowerPoint for this including artists who do unusual installations. We’ll also delve into what’s most important to you in your work and creative process and how to build on those concepts including ways to move forward in creating a series. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and will benefit from these mind expanding talks! This will be done in a group setting but the dialog will be individualized and as I look at the work of each person and give feedback. The beauty of this setting is the group dynamic, picking up ideas from my feedback and continuing to build a bond with participants, a community of artists is very important to our art life!

The cost for this day is $125. We’ll start at 10am and see how long the day goes up to 4pm. Please let me know if you are able to participate when signing up for the workshop.

Workshop description:

This process oriented workshop will focus on a variety of techniques and materials which can integrate with one another allowing for a broader and more confident way of approaching your work whether you normally work in acrylic, oil, encaustic, cold wax, watercolor or ink. Participants will come away with a working knowledge of products and their use, a sense of how exploration, experimentation and creating in the NOW can enhance your current practice and become the inspiration for new ideas.

Some materials and techniques we will be utilizing:

Texture – various gel mediums and molding pastes on canvas
(also for use on canvas in preparation for oil painting)

Acrylic Paint – palette knife effects, layering, dripping, splashing, thin washes and additive and subtractive approaches

Monotypes – gouache, acrylic and watercolor on paper – we’ll be doing Encaustic Monotypes on Masa paper as well.

Collage onto canvas– monotypes, various tissue and handmade papers.
Ink and charcoal – spontaneous mark making techniques

Yupo Paper – inks, watercolor and oils

Cold Wax

Mulberry Paper

Speedball inks – Printmaking with carving tools into carving blocks

Ampersand Claybords, Gessobords, Aquabords and Pastelbords
