This is a great class for those interested in photography, scrap booking, journaling, painting and collage. We will be creating a work of fine art work based on your travels. Using mixed media to combine your personal photos with paint, cold-wax and/or encaustic you will end with a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. If you choose not to bring your own photos, we can use images I have, so you get the practice you need to return home and create art based on your travel adventures. Our workshop session will last for 2.5 hours. During the first hour I will be demonstrating and teaching a variety of transfer processes and layering techniques. The remaining 90 minutes will be used for the expression of your creativity! You will be guided step by step, getting personal support, attention and tutorials from me as you grow your project. This unique activity is great for groups and families who want to promote creativity and bonding. All experience levels are welcome! You will leave with: *A beautiful piece of custom art that is unique to you and your travels *An enhanced experience of inspiration and newfound ability to follow your intuition *more access and confidence in your creative ability
I found my calling as a photographer in 2007. I collected thousands of images that served as a translation of the divine on earth. After hoarding these jewels onto hard-drives that few eyes saw, I realized that the ultimate purpose of these photos were to be used as a medium for my creativity. I began following my delight and awe through utilization experimental processes that led me to combine drawing, painting and photo transfer techniques. I have had a business in stained glass, sculptural installations and photography. I've been the recipient of several art grants, had many solo art show, and juried for several prestigious art competitions. I've taught workshops around the country in photography and fine art.
I will be providing 11" by 14" canvas, glues, paints, brushes, waxes, extra magazine pics, etc. If you would like to work on…
You will get the experience of coming to my personal and unique art studio in West Asheville for the workshop.
