Join Dina Wakley for an expressive weekend where we leave our self-criticisms at the door and open our souls to let the art guide us into powerful directions. We'll be making both a canvas and a journal structure, moving from one to the other throughout the weekend. We'll build up background layers, remove layers, and build them again to create complex and interesting surfaces. Then we'll add images with a "magic" pencil. Trust me, you don't have to know how to draw to use this pencil. I will show you tips & tricks for using it, and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish. We'll draw artsy birds, and also create free-form images that we will examine and then turn into meaningful elements on our pages. We'll be using gesso, acrylic paints, modeling paste, stencils, and spray inks to fill our art with color and expression all weekend long.
ALL supplies & meals will be provided.
