Workshops in Oregon, Cali, & Online

Hello my West Coast friends! I am coming to Runaway Art & Craft Studio in Salem, OR in October to teach 2 workshops: one that is all about getting the most from your Gelli Plate and a second one that is a NEW art journaling class.

Saturday October 13th, 2018: Uber Gelli Plate Printing

Join me for a day long class, diving into the basics and beyond of gelli plate printing. We’ll play with pattern making and we’ll discuss color theory and design. I will introduce you to the Mono Print Painting technique inspired by H.N. Werkman and we’ll learn different ways to create elaborate and layered mono printed paintings. Using self made tools, stamps and stencils, we’ll take your gelli plate printing to a whole new level. This is the ultimate in uber fun and easy printing techniques.

To register: call Runaway Art & Craft Studio at 503-881-6270 or email christy@runawayart.com

Here are some fun photos from when I taught this class last – so many beautiful prints, happy faces and great memories!!!

And the next day a brand NEW Art Journaling class that you will love…

Sunday October 14th, 2018: Transfer, Trace, Transform

Get ready to transform your art journal!

Join me for a fun day of exploring different ways to trace and transfer images into your art journal pages. The imperfect look of transferred photos can serve either as a building block of your layering process or as a stand alone focal point of a page. Tracing techniques provide just as many creative choices, and we’ll learn loose tracing techniques based on different image sources to give you a variety of options for your art journaling. Not only are there many ways to actually transfer or trace images, there are also many ways to transform those images in your art journal into something personal and unique.

To register: call Runaway Art & Craft Studio at 503-881-6270 or email christy@runawayart.com

This is a brand new workshop that I am super excited to share with you. Here are some of my own art journal pages that use techniques that we will be learning in the class:

I hope to see you there and maybe you make it a full out Artsy Weekend and join me for both :)

Workshops in Oregon in December

I will be coming to Salem, Oregon on December 2nd and 3rd to teach 3 workshops at Runaway Art and Craft Studio!

You can sign up for these workshops by calling (503)881-6270 or by e-mail at Christy@Runawayart.com. Hope to see you on the West Coast in December :)

Saturday, December 2nd: 9 am – 12:30 pm

Let’s create a beautiful little wall hanging for your home, office, or beyond! We will begin by creating a colorful, patterned background. Then we’ll take it further by adding scenery using stamps, graphite, paints and other supplies. Finally we will add detail and highlights to pull the landscape together. We will be working on Ampersand Clayboard which offers a special and exciting surface to create your Mixed Media work on.

Saturday, December 2nd: 2pm – 5:30 pm

All Aboard the Master Art Express! Imagine you could take a trip through Europe and at each stop one of the many masters of European art would materialize and invite you to explore their art to implement into your art journal. Let’s take this imaginary trip together and explore different European artists at each station, taking their artwork as an inspiration for mixed media techniques and colors. We will discuss why some things work and why some things don’t work and will solve the little “problems” that sometimes occur while creating art. Work with acrylic paints, acrylic inks, different tools and materials and gain a deeper knowledge about the versatility and possibilities of your art materials. Let the travel itself be part of the journey and take the elements of art in to push your own art journaling style just a notch further.

Sunday, December 3rd: 10am – 5:30 pm

It starts the moment you sit down, an experience that is distinctly art journaling. A quick exhilaration, a sense of control, the art media’s surprising responsiveness as if they were simply an extension of you. There is a word for this creative experience: Artvergnugen! Artvergnugen is what makes your journal a piece of art. Join me and play with different art media and supplies; discover fun layering techniques with stamps, stencils and acrylic paints. Let’s talk about colors, composition, love-it or list-it to truly reveal your own style, and learn techniques, tips and tricks to take your art journaling further and turn it into Artvergnugen.

You can sign up for these workshops by calling (503)881-6270 or by e-mail at Christy@Runawayart.com
