Exciting workshop in August, 2012
I want to tell you about my workshop that you may want to put on your Christmas list:
This is mainly a watercolor class, but additional media will be offered to expand the imagination of the student.The objective of this class is to expand the imagination, simplify shapes, and create clean, glowing colors!We’ll learn how to do 30 minute studies that will help students think in simple terms and create great designs.Many special effects that will be offered:working with graphite and pouring water over the paper to create great textures to begin the paintings.Also, collage will be added to create texture.A patchwork effect will add to the fun!This workshop will definitely get you out of your box! (Karlyn Holman will be teaching at Madeline Island on the same weekend, a separate class, but lunches and evening meals, etc. are all together!) To view details of my class, click here .
