I find my best work comes when I have uninterrupted time to delve deep into the process and explore ideas and techniques. Opportunities to focus on our art making can be so rare, but it’s incredibly important to make time for it in our over scheduled hectic lives.
I’d like to invite you to take the opportunity to immerse yourself in an environment that nurtures creativity and inspiration with a small group of like minded creative explorers
amongst towering pines and mountain vistas, pushing boundaries and opening new frontiers of creative expression at Idyllwild Arts in the tranquil mountains of Southern California.
we’ll dig deep and explore imagery and symbolism with layers of paint, and multiple processes,
to create a final complex painted surface with acrylic inks and textile paint.
Our exploration will continue with decorative free motion stitching to enhance the painted imagery.
Over the course of 3 days, I’ll teach you at least 10 different techniques using acrylic inks;
creating colorful textured backgrounds, exploring mark making with different kinds of stamps, drawing with quill and ruling pens, painting imagery opaquely and with a transparent watercolor look, working with simple resists and masks while layering washes of color.
This class is packed with tips and techniques for working with acrylic inks on fabric and will leave you bursting with new ideas to explore. Space is limited so sign up now!
