When was the last time you gave yourself three full days for relaxation and creativity?
I know I don’t do it enough. It’s been a rough couple years, I think we should treat ourselves to more time for artistic exploration and creativity, it’s good for the soul!
Join me this July 19-21, that’s just 2 months from now! for a 3 day painting retreat, Art Quilts: Painting & Surface Techniques at Idyllwild Arts in the scenic mountains of Southern, California.
This is going to be so fun! On the first day we are going to work on color. Through a series of color exercises, you will learn how to mix paint colors to create the colors you want, learn how colors interact and affect each other and know what color combinations will give your art the most impact.
On the second day we are going to learn about painting on fabric; how to avoid paint bleeding, how to paint backgrounds, use freezer paper resists, paint smooth gradations, work with transparent glazes to build up color and contrast and how to paint fine lines and details.
On our last day we will add mixed media techniques to fabric; collage with sheer paper imagery and tea bags, use paintsticks, colored pencils, rubber stamps and transfers.
It’s going to be an information packed 3 days, sure to give you the tools you need to take on your next big painted quilt or mixed media textile project. Check out the details and register now.
Let’s spend some creative time together!
