Oct. 4th Mixed Media Emulsions Tranfers
10-1pm $59.
with Rosie Posie

Alternative Photo/Mixed Media using Polaroid Emulsion Remember the good ol' days using Polaroids? Remember pulling apart the chemical side to reveal the awesome photo? Well then this class is for you! We will use a unique piece ofequipment called a "DayLab" system and old fashioned instant film (no longer manufactured by Polaroid, but rather by Fuji) to create a One of A Kind mixed media art piece!  lYou will learn how to develop the film and separate the actual emulsion from the print in order to incorporate it into your art. It's so amazing to use your photos in a gelatinous, delicate form! It's so cool to use your own photos in your art journals in such a creative way!

Also in this class, we will create a Carved Stamp out of rubber! This will be done while we take turns using the DayLab system. Look forward to creating TWO Emulsion Prints for your art. Please bring your altered art journals as well as your favorite 4x6 photos. You will be creating copies of your 4x6 photos and the originals will not be destroyed, so you can brings vintage prints if you would like. NOTE: max size is 4x6!!! All materials provided in class fee.

WOOT WOOT DINA WAKLEY IS GONNA TEACH AGAIN....
Oct 30th  Beyond the ink Pad
1-4pm  $55.00

My “Art Journal Play” classes are all about exploring and playing with art journaling techniques. The goal is to learn techniques, experiment, play, and make finished journal pages. We’ll be working in journals, but the techniques apply to all mixed-media projects (canvases, book-making, etc.).

 

In this class, we’ll explore one of our favorite addictions, rubber stamps. But we are going to go beyond the ink pad and use stamps with Pan Pastels, acrylic paints, crayons, gelatos, and more. I will show you techniques for creating and then we will build finished pages on top of our stamping–that means we’ll consider color, composition and layers as we finish our work.

 

Please bring:

•Basic tool kit: Ranger craft sheet, paint brushes, rag/cloth, pencil, scissors, water container to clean your brushes, palette knife, baby wipes, paper towels, old gift card to use as a scraper, water container to clean your brushes in, paper plate or palette paper to use as a palette (or you can just use your craft sheet).

•Your art journal (I recommend the Dylusions journal by Ranger)

•Gesso

•Gel medium (I prefer soft-gel matte)

•Acrylic paints

•Rubber stamps–bring your “muses.” I will have some to share, too!

•Black Ink Pad (I like Archival by Ranger). I will have several to share, if you don’t have one.

•Pen(s) for journaling onto your pages

•Optional: PanPastels, Gelatos, Neocolor II crayons. Bring these if you have them…if not, don’t worry, I will have plenty in class.
