Wild Women Acrylic Workshop with Jennifer Stone
Dates: May 7 - 9, 2024
Time: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Place: Faith Lutheran Church - Bagley
In this workshop, students will create personal collage papers. Papers range from script, to abstracted shapes, to papers that would regain the lights lost in areas, and darks that will pop. The variety is endless. She will give us ideas on how to create our own stamps, utilizing what may be more personal to you and your work. After making collage papers, we will be able to construct smaller designs on paper, using all of the techniques she will be demonstrating in the workshop. Collage may be used alone, or with water or acrylic media, creating a mixed media piece.
This workshop will include demos and exercises, including how to use stencils and stamps to create collage paper and also staining tissue paper and making blotter papers. Jennifer will teach and demo throughout the day leaving working time for students to create papers and make designs with Jennifer’s assistance.
Watercolor and Gouache with David R. Becker
Dates: June 18-20, 2024
Time: 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Location: Faith Lutheran Church, Bagley
This watercolor and gouache class will cover using transparent watercolor and opaque watercolor gouache together. Students will be learning about traditional watercolors and how to use them together with acrylic and watercolor gouache techniques. There will be times we use the gouache in a transparent watercolor way and at times we will be using it like you would use oils and acrylics. Painting surfaces will include paper, Yupo paper, and black watercolor paper. Students will learn how to use these two mediums together to create a different type of style and technique. It is like TWO CLASSES IN ONE! Each day the students do an exercise in the morning and start another in the afternoon to go over many different aspects of each medium they use. Each class and exercise builds on the previous assignment, which helps students learn all that David wants them to take away from this class. David will bring the gouache for the workshop.
