Trying to learn Finnish or … Europe Tour is coming up!

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Workshop Schedule

I cannot believe I am leaving for my little Europe tour already in  1 1/2 weeks. I am so excited.

All the paints are shipped and waiting for us (thanks to Liquitex for all the help!!!), a new suitcase is ordered after the last one broke on the trip to Oklahoma and I am starting to think of the temperatures in the different places I will be …from super hot to …maybe a bit cold 😉

First stop will be Madrid, Spain on May 30th for Cuchy and my 4th Art Mesa Mixed Media Event !

There are still some spots available- so if you are in the area :) – Sign up and join us!

Then I will stop over in Germany for a couple days to visit my loved ones in my old home :) I am so looking forward to see my peeps and I have a whole list of what I want to eat and where I want to go and…oh wait..I only have 3 days…mhhh !

Next stop is Turku, Finland June 6&7 for Matka Luovuuteen together with my friend Birgit Koopsen.

There are only 2 more seats available- so if you are in the area- come and join us!

After Finland I will spent some time with Birgit in her home in The Netherlands …we have creative fun plans! Maybe instead of just chatting we will actually even paint together- we will see 😉
And last but not least a stop in Ede, The Netherlands on June 13&14 for the De Craftorij Retreat 2015


There are still a couple seats left and you can sign up for Saturday, Sunday or both days!

Working on getting everything ready on time – and trying to learn some new words ….like:

  • Leikkuualusta askarteluveitsen kanssa käytettäväksi

This means Cutting Mat in Finnish …I think I will fail this language …off to learn Cutting Mat in Dutch and Spanish – maybe I am better there – I am sure I will make a fool of myself trying – LOL

DOEI (that means Bye in Dutch …one of the few words I know!) – have a gorgeous day!

    Oh myyyy Nat – I would never have the courage to do what you are doing even if I were as fit as a fiddle as in my younger years! I’m such a home body! But… I totally admire you for going and know – without a doubt – that everyone is looking forward to you arriving and teaching and hugging. IT WILL ALL BE SUPER FINE in every way. I will be thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers. HAVE FUN… and bring back lots of pictures!!! Can’t wait to see them. j.

More Workshops: The InkPad in NYC and 21 Secrets

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Mixed Media Workshop, Workshop Schedule

RawCanvasStainingWSAd2

I am teaching this Raw Canvas Staining Class at The InkPad in New York City on May 16, 2015 – 10.30am – 5pm

The technique of painting on unprimed, raw canvas is most often associated with artists such as Morris Louis, Kenneth Noland and Helen Frankenthaler just to name a few.

Color-field artists poured, dripped, or brushed thinned paints onto the canvas that soaked through the surface and stained the fabric, creating a velvet-like appearance.

Join me in exploring fun techniques of staining and painting raw canvas and open a whole new creative world to apply these techniques on stretched canvases, pillow cases, bags and home decor items or even clothes.

You can sign up here

21 SECRETS Spring ART

And a reminder that the 21 Secrets Art Journaling Workshop starts in April 2015. You can still sign up for this downloadable Workshop which is contains actually 21 workshops by 21 Artists . You will download an eBook which contains written text, loads of videos and photos. I am super thrilled that I was asked to participate.

What I teach? The Story Within a Story 

For me art journaling is visual story telling. It might not be a story that everyone can read but I can read it and that is all that counts. All my stories consist of many viewpoints and layers – thoughts, emotions and the story itself. I love to express the complexity of a story by building up layers and dimension through various techniques and texture.

In this workshop I would like to walk with you through my art journaling process. I will show you various layering techniques and I will tell you why and how I am doing what I am doing.

Join me in telling a creative story within a story.

 

How much does it cost?

Right now the PRESALE is happening !

PRE ORDER NOW

Note: The link that I am using to promote 21 SECRETS is an affiliate link and I will receive a small percentage of any student who registers through my link. If you want to register, and want to support me as an artist it would be wonderful if you would consider registering through my link .

 

Hope to see you either in person or online :)
