WORKSHOP SCHEDULE 2019
Jan 12-13 Fri Sat 10-4:00 WINTER FLOWERS acrylic/cold wax 2 work sessions . lunch+mat included 275.00
Bringing flowers into your home makes us happy. We'll cover impressionistic ways to represent flowers real and imagined in glorious colors ..I'm not a realistic painter so I like to allow for the mistakes and brushstrokes to bring out the playfulness and differences in petals and stems and bring our own imagination to a still life. We will have steps to follow but always there will be discoveries and layers of trial and error for me and you. Cold wax with oils as colorant will be added on top of acrylics both at a middle point of one work and end on another for you to see and use this material. It adds depth and surface.
Jan 27 Sat 10-4:00 GEL PLATE PRINTS printing ink & acrylics on paper. lunch+ mat included 75.00
I've used papers from gel plate prints as a background for small works..and in mixed media work. I'm interested in using gel plates on a larger surface to repeat a pattern. We'll make print papers then add collage and paint on top to find a surface we couldn't achieve without the plate.
Feb 14,15,16 "ALCHEMY OF STORY" dig deeper into imagery using your own memories to compose work that's more meaningful. Images from your own photos will be transferred to a glazed wood panel from which we can expand the image with collage and paints to make a moment or event you'd like to express.. This is like pulling a thought or dream out of the mist and into view. mat+lunch +field trip to ride horseback along the rio grand OR hike through nearby Petroglyph National Park where we can see other artists work of Alchemy of Story on the rocks above Albuquerque OR soak in hot mineral springs of the Jemez Mountains a short ride from the studio are included. 495.00 Reservations and deposits are required for all classes..intimate setting..small groups..call, text or email to reserve.
