Dina Wakley will be here September 15th & 16th to teach 4 classes!  We Love our Dina!!

 

“Finding Joy in Abstraction”

Friday, September 15th

1:30-4:30pm

$75

 

 

Join me for an exploration in abstract painting. Abstract painting might seem random, but it is based in composition and color theory. The skills you learn will be useful whether you later use them for backgrounds or as stand-alone abstract pieces. We will work on boards to create interesting foundations and looks with our acrylic paints and other mixed media supplies. After we’ve practiced, we’ll create a canvas. The end result will be gorgeous multi-layered paintings. Bring your journal, too, for practicing and taking notes. We will have lots of messy, artistic fun!

Please bring:

  • Basic tool kit: Ranger craft sheet, scissors, water container to clean your brushes, baby wipes, paper towels, paper plate or palette paper to use as a palette (or you can just use your craft sheet). You may also want a small notebook and a pen for taking notes.
  • A tub of white gesso.
  • Your art journal.

 

“Joy of Gelli Printing”

Friday, September 15th

6-9pm

$70


 

 

Come and get an introduction to gelatin-style mono-printing with the Gelli Arts printing plate. We’ll go over printing basics as well as several different techniques for achieving unique and many-layered prints. Gelatin printing is fun and addictive!  We will make our prints into a quick & easy little journal.

Please bring:

  • Basic tool kit: Ranger craft sheet, scissors, water container to clean your brushes, baby wipes, paper towels, paper plate or palette paper to use as a palette (or you can just use your craft sheet). You may also want a small notebook and a pen for taking notes.
  • Your art journal (I recommend the Dylusions journal by Ranger)
  • 12″ paper cutter
  • Gelli plate (if you have one. If not, I will have a very limited number to share in class).
  • Rubber brayer

 

“Facing the Facts”

Saturday, September 16th

9:30am-12:30pm

$70


 

 

 

I always say I don’t know how to draw, yet I have taught myself how to draw faces. Guess what, you can draw faces, too! I will teach you how to draw a face with easy tips and tricks. We’ll use the “magic pencil” to make your faces look artsy and interesting (and I will give you each your own pencil in your kit, so you’ll have one to play with at home).  I’ll also show you how to paint the faces with artistic, fun colors. Even if you can’t draw, you can learn to draw faces. I promise!

Please bring:

  • Basic tool kit: Ranger craft sheet, scissors, water container to clean your brushes, baby wipes, paper towels, paper plate or palette paper to use as a palette (or you can just use your craft sheet). You may also want a small notebook and a pen for taking notes.
  • Your art journal (I recommend the Dylusions journal by Ranger)
