REVERSE COLLAGE PAINTING – A BRIGHT SPOT ON A WINTER’S DAY

Winter is the perfect time to cozy up in your studio with a cup of something hot and unleash your creativity. When the weather outside is frightful, I find that is the best time to grab my bucket full of cheerful papers and get to work. Come along with me to create a winter-themed piece that celebrates the season while adding a bright spot to your day. For this project we will use a combination of brightly colored papers with dark paint to create a dramatic and unique look that will brighten even the darkest winter days.

BEGINNERS ANIMAL PORTRAITS in Coloured Pencil

After covering watercolour, drawing and acrylic animal portraits in this class we’ll be using colored pencil as our medium. This class will be great for either a beginner or a more experienced student. We will be working with specific lesson plans and because this medium takes a while to complete, we may only end up with only a few finished pictures. With this medium, you can achieve a more realistic result and image which I think students may appreciate.
