I had so much fun teaching at Craft Fusion in Mesa, AZ to two groups of lovely students! In our morning class, Abstract Backgrounds, we created our own unique collage papers using a variety of marks and texture rubbings using oil pastel, stencils and rubbing plates.
Then we added spray inks and acrylic paint through stencils and topped it off with stamping with found objects and kids' art tools. We repeated the techniques and layers in our art journals and made a lot of fun, messy discoveries!
In the afternoon, we made our own collage paper, built up layers in our art journals and then learned the basics in drawing faces. We drew our faces over the backgrounds and then learned to add color and texture, playing with opacity & transparency using oil paint sticks.
I would LOVE to see you in class sometime! Whether it be in-person or online, everyone at every level is always welcome! Check out my class offerings HERE (or go up to the to of the page where it says "workshops.") I've got a FREE art journaling mini course happening right now!

If you have any special requests for classes, or would like me to teach at a store or studio in your town, let me know! I will travel anywhere in the US (or abroad!) You can contact me at: email@example.com
Thank you and as always, happy creating! :)
