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.
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.
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 :)
