I had a blast teaching @ Art Lounge on 101

 

I had an amazing group of ladies join me at Art Lounge on 101 in March 4 & 5.  Many had never painted before or hadn't painted in a long time.  They were amazing and their artwork was expressive, creative and so unique!

Our first class was all about painting BIG!  We each had a canvas about 24" x 24" and we experimented with adding layers with oil pastels, acrylic paint, spray inks and collage to create fun, messy, abstract backgrounds.  The second class focused more on faces and portraits on a smaller background.

We started by using an assortment of texture tools to create rubbings with oil pastel, then adding stamps with oil pastel and spray inks through stencils to create our own unique collage paper.

The end results were just stunning!  Here are just a few examples of what was created in class that day...

I absolutely LOVE teaching art!  Ever since I was a kid, I've always wanted to be an artist, a teacher and an author.  Two out of three aint bad (and there's still plenty of time to check off the third!) I love to create, but I also love to inspire and share my knowledge with others.  I'd love to see you in class sometime!  Check out my workshops page for my upcoming classes (check back often, as I'm always adding new dates and venues!)  Don't see a location near you listed?  Contact me and we can set something up!  If you're a shop owner, retreat coordinator, have your own studio space or would like to gather friends for a private event, feel free to drop me an email!
