Learn a variety of techniques, ideas and approaches as you work on a specially developed project in this workshop. You will learn ideas and techniques that can be applied to ANY art form.

Let's get messy! Explore, experiment and play with paint in this colorful and fun workshop. We'll start by collaging our pages and then it's time to pull out the paint! You will learn everything I know about acrylics, mediums as well as a plethora of ways to apply acrylics to our journal pages (or canvas, walls, etc...) Explore color, texture and depth as you create original and luscious pages.

You will also love making your own unique sampler to remember all of these techniques later on.

Instructor Provided (for use in-class, and to share):

  • I will be bringing a wide selection of rubber stamps, ink pads, stencils, acrylics, acrylic mediums and collage materials. You're always welcome to bring your own supplies to use but this is a small heads up that I tend to bring everything but the kitchen sink in my classes!

Student should bring:

  • an apron
  • scissors
  • a small selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images and papers)
  • bone folder
  • cork back metal ruler
  • a full roll of paper towels OR old rags
  • permanent black ink pad (only if you have one)
  • a container for your paint water,
  • 1 to 2" brush to glue and paint (I like chip or bristle brushes) as well as a few, smaller, detailed brushes
  • a few of your favorite glue sticks (large glue sticks will last you longer)
  • a roll of waxed paper OR an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don't want to use all of your waxed paper for this.)
