Photos of my Workshops in Oklahoma City

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Mixed Media Workshop

I had a blast the past weekend teaching at My Heart’s Fancy in Oklahoma City. I taught “Make Your Mark” a mono printing class on friday and “Artvergnugen” – ArtJournaling as well as “Play-Transform Mixed Media Collage” on Sunday as full day classes. I had a super enthusiastic and fun group of students willing to dive full force in all the yummy color mess – thank you girls!!!

I love spending the weekend with happy and creative people and besides many things I learned about Oklahoma – thank you for taking the class and that some of you drove from so far away and other States in!!! Thank you also to Maura for being such an amazing host and Lisa for being such a big help and sweet spirit! And thank you to Liquitex for providing such an amazing amount of different yummy acrylic paints and media for us !

If you want to take an in-person class with me – I am teaching next an Art Journaling 101 – April 19 – and a Mixed Media Canvas Class – April 26 – at Pratt Institute in NYC at the Manhattan location.

Find the whole Spring catalogue for Pratt CCPS here. You can sign up at Pratt here

I would love to see you :) – Have a super creative day!

    We had a blast and learned so much in such a short time. This has given me confidence to work far more successfully with some of the Liquitex gels and varnishes. It also pushed me to take my work in a much less “safe”and infinitely more interesting direction. Nathalie, you are a wonderful teacher! Please come back to Oklahoma again.

    This was an amazing 3 days and I learned so much! It was fantastic to finally meet you in person! Thank you for all you do for all of us! Thanks to Liquitex for their generosity also. What a great opportunity to learn more about their acrylic products and to use them in our work!

    I am so grateful for the time spent with you. Learned a lot and it was so much fun. I was thankful to learn about white washing and glazing. I love all your photos. They bring back many happy memories.

For In Person workshops you find all information here http://nathaliesstudio.com/in-person-workshops/ – the Summer and Fall classes will be listed soon. You find all online workshops under the Workshop section on top of the website. Thank you.

Good Bye …. or In My Art Journal Today

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal

Natkalbach_GoodBye01

I had a good time creating this grungy art journal page.

Natkalbach_GoodBye02

I used a fluid writer pen filled with acrylic ink for some scribbles and journaling which at parts I converted into marks by using a painters knife brushing over it. A different way of hiding some journaling instead of painting over it. I like it- I think I will use it again ;)

Here are the supplies I used:

Have a wonderful day!

2 Tallest – Mixed Media Painting

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Mixed Media Painting

2Tallest

New Painting inspired by the view from the Statue of Liberty towards Jersey City and Manhattan.

On the left there is Jersey City with the tallest building in New Jersey

on the right Manhattan …with the tallest building there…

It is funny, when I was the first time in NYC in 2000 I took a ferry to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island and on the way back I took a huge amount of photos of the skyline of both cities (of course back then the skyline looked a bit different) and I really fell in love with this view, but if you would have told me then, that one day I would live right there …I would have told you, you are insane- LOL

Here is a 15 second video of the canvas progressing

I think it is fun to see the different stages, what do you think?

    Funny how we sometimes end up in a place that we never imagined.
    After 12 years of being at home with my son I recently returned to work as a lunch lady since it suits my schedule. I never would have guessed that 15 years ago (I was a social worker in the mental health field).
    Life is full of surprises!

    Love this painting Nathalie. You are really good. I enjoy the feelings I get when I look at all your paintings. to bad you are not close enough so I could view them close up amd in person. Maybe one day when do an exhibit I will be able to com. Keep up the fantastic work. As long as you are having fun I guess it is not work.

    I’m so glad you made the video Nat. I can see the gorgeous background with the letters better. The letters make it soooo New York looking in my imagination. The colors are perfect. It is a beautiful piece. I so love seeing your work. And TOTALLY glad that you came to New Jersey to live and teach and create! :) I KNOW they will love your Oklahoma workshop. I was married in Ok – 43 years ago!!! Have a blessed weekend.XX j.
