Hi there friends!
Hope your week is off to a great start! The Fall weather here has been outstanding and we even managed to get out to the Oregon wine country and picnic with the kids this weekend! We happen to have some lovely friends who have a beautiful vacation rental home out there that I got to help decorate! Very fun to juice up the ole’ interior designer brain that doesn’t get much use anymore!
Anyway, I have some seriously exciting news to share! I have just opened up registration for my new online mixed media and encaustic workshop – Flight & Feather!
This two week online workshop will explore the magic, grace and beauty of birds! When I look around my studio, I notice how many bird images and sweet stray feathers I have lying about. Birds appear in my work all the time, so I was inspired to create a class all about them!
We will be completing 4 main projects and several studies and exercises. These creations would make beautiful gifts for loved ones and friends for the upcoming holiday season too!
I made a little video so you can hear more about it…
Things that we will cover in the workshop:
- A guided tour of Birds in Art throughout history
- Bird symbolism and mythology
- Creating bird sketches with ink and charcoal on vintage papers
- A study of drawing feathers and wings
- Bird poetry inspired art journal spread
- How to set up your encaustic wax
- A bird/woman metamorphosis portrait collage
- Feather & Wax Collage
- Landscape/Bird collage with wax, oil sticks and gold leaf
This class is a must for anyone who loves birds and ART!
I really enjoy guiding and communicating with my students, so I will only be taking a limited number. Registration will close when the classroom reaches maximum occupancy.
CLASSROOM OPENS OCT. 26th, 2015
