New art workshop coming in July:
DREAMSCAPING WITH ALCOHOL INKS
Join artist Jeanne Wagle for this fun, expressive workshop. You'll paint your small (5" x 7") impressionist masterpieces on yupo paper, a synthetic material that's unlike any other paper. The effects are limited only by your imagination, and maybe a little skill! Use your paintings for cards or small matted gifts. Want to make it a party? Sign up with some friends. You're welcome to bring your own refreshments.
Choose your date and time:
Saturday, July 8
Sunday, July 23
Friday, August 4
includes everything you need to paint four 5x7 works of art.
This class is now full.
*What is Watercolor Batik?
Batik means "wax written" and involves the use of liquid hot wax and successive watercolor washed on ginwashi oriental paper, which yields abstract textured qualities. Watercolor batik creates an artistic interpretation, rather than a literal one, using watercolor paint instead of dies. Jeanne Wagle uses harmoniously enriched color choices and a broad range of values. Once the layers are complete, the paper is crinkled into a ball, producing small "cracks" in the wax. The paper is then smoothed, a final wash is applied and sealed with one more coat of wax. When the piece is completely dry, it is placed between layers of newspaper and ironed. Corrections to the painting may be made using watercolor paint or pastel pencils.
