By popular demand, I'm teaching a brand new mixed media class. Roll up your sleeves, don your aprons and prepare to get messy! We'll explore a variety of mediums including watercolor, gouache, and much, much more. Create richly painted pages which you will assemble into a canvas covered book. Learn new ways of exploring color and layering in this unique four hour workshop.
Supply list: Apron, tacky glue, scissors, bone folder, cork back metal ruler, roll of waxed paper, roll of paper towels OR an old rag, permanent black inkpad, and 1 to 2" brush to paint and glue (I like chip or bristle brushes).

Caption Nemo’s Lover

In my mind the only reason for Caption Nemo to suffer the claustrophobia and steamy humidity of that ancient industrial age submarine was because he must have had a mermaid lover and what mermaid she must have been. Just his type with her industrial whimsy style, wire wrapped cage body, on a firm strong bodice of wood with an industrial strength bra created from bead findings. Long tendrils of bead strung kelp give her body romantic skirt . A wweet painted Paper Clay face and a hairdo of Paper Clay detailed with wrapped layers of wire and nails all twisted and turned by the sea . Of course she carries a glass purse of her own sea treasure dowery and she will hang gracefully any where you choose.
Class includes all materials and tools to make this project plus lunch on the 2 full 6 hour days.
