Large and InCharge TWO Worlds Collide!
LARGE AND INCHARGE IS A NEW SERIES of themed workshops that focusus on creating large scale (or big idea) artworks under the guidance of master mixed media artist, Christina Lovisa (www.christinalovisa.com). This is the PERFECT workshop for anyone who has ever wanted to create large scale art or big idea art projects and and can't quite figure out where to start! If you're anything like me and see things we like either in stores or on Pinterest and think to ourselves, "I could make that", only to go home and never make that thing because you didn't know how - then this series is for you!
TWO WORLDS COLLIDE GONE HUGE- The second physical, in-class sessions will begin this summer and feature Two Worlds Collide - Encaustic and Mixed Media. Be prepared to experience true freedom in art-making as we toss aside tight or restrictive habits and trade them for unabashed creativity and play! Even if you've never picked up a paintbrush, this workshop will have you taking home a finished, professional looking, encaustic and mixed media painting after only 9 hours of guided instruction. Every single painting made in class will be individual, unique and in your own style. Learn to recognize what you love, what colours suit you and your unique mark-making sensibilities. Week 1 - We'll lay the foundation - texture, colours, background, light collage elements etc and leave it to dry. Week 2 - The first major EDIT. Week 3 - Encaustic application and finishing.
Provided ($50 Value)-Chalk and Clay-based paints (limited colour palate)
- The use of stencils, stamps mark making tools, brushes and studio supplies.
