Collage Workshop with Crystal Neubauer

Hello there!

I hope your week is going smoothly! I just returned home from Bainbridge Island, WA yesterday. The workshop with Crystal Neubauer was amazing!

She is a kind, passionate and generous teacher. I loved learning more about not only her process but the emotions, symbolism and personal meaning in her work. There is nothing better than hearing from an artist why she does the things she does in her creations.

The first day we foraged for natural elements to create our own mark making tools! We bundled up and went beach combing. Here are Robin and I out to find natural treasures!

I came back with a pretty nice stash…

It was such a delight to construct beautiful brushes to create gorgeous and unique marks with black india ink! Perfect for creating collage papers!

On the second day, we got a tour of the beautiful Wacky Nut Farm – where the workshop was being held. This beautiful location is an exclusive equine center with the most exquisite horses you’ve even seen! After just doing my Spirit Horse class, it was quite a treat to connect with these majestic animals. This is Indigo – a sweet Fresian mare. I loved her!

After our barn tour, we got right back to work. Piles of delicious collage papers awaited! Under Crystal’s lovely guidance we created all day long! She showed us wonderful techniques and composition tips too!

I came away with these collages…

Also, if you guys haven’t already bought Crystal’s book – it’s a must!

A free mixed media tutorial – The Painted Horses

Happy Friday!!

I truly hope your week has been lovely! I’m super duper excited because I’m heading out on a road trip to Bainbridge Island, WA with my friend Robin to attend a Crystal Neubauer collage workshop! Wooo!

In preparation for the trip, I even did a practice collage in Crystal’s beautiful style. I absolutely loved working with all my yummy vintage ephemera!

I will definitely be sharing my experience with you guys when I return next week!

In the meantime, I promised you a free art lesson! This one was inspired from my Spirit Horse workshop! It’s a fun, easy to do project that is perfect for a quiet afternoon, to do with some friends or even get your kiddos involved! I hope you will get your creative juices flowing and give it a go!

Here it is! Enjoy!

Much love and gratitude to you all and I hope you have a wonderful weekend! If you do happen to do this art project and you want to share your creation with me – I would be delighted! You can post it to my Facebook page!
