I’m teaching at the adorable creative space, Nixie Sparrow, in Beacon, NY, Saturday, May 9; 12:00 noon. It’s going to be a whopping good time — creative, community, and art stuff!
In this 2-3 hour workshop, we’ll use art materials to explore how we are “Branching Out” in our lives — whether we are budding out in spring fever, nesting with little ones, or pruning off what no longer serves us.
First, I’ll guide you through simple journal prompts. Then, you’ll create abstract backgrounds, layering on paint and paper, images, colors, marks, and descriptive words.
No experience necessary! Mistakes are encouraged!
You’ll love creating your pages, learn basic elements of collage, and find easy, take-home techniques!
