October 1: 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Cost: $100. Students should bring their own beverage and lunch.

Students will be working from their own photographs during this class, head and
shoulders only, but profiles are fine. We will begin by drawing the portrait using a quick
sketch/gesture method, then refining and correcting until the likeness is achieved.
Creating a natural composition and rendering facial features not only to create a
resemblance, but personality as well, will be the main focus of this class. Once the
subject’s image is correct, it will be transferred to watercolor paper and painted as a value
study, then layered with color.
If students have their own Golden Open paints, please bring them, otherwise Pamela
will supply paint. There will be a supply list for other materials and paper needed.

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.
