Back to the Basics: The workshop will cover: Elements of art: Line, Color, Texture, Shape, Form, Size and Value and the Principles of Art: Center of Interest, Balance, Harmony, Contrast, Rhythm, Directional Movement.
Each workshop will be highlighted with exercises to develop your understanding of the elements and principles of art. You can take them back to your studio to further your art vision.
The class is for artists, writers, engineers, and anyone wanting to develop a creative vision. If you have experienced a block the exercises will help you overcome them as well as teach you how to access the right side of your brain faster.

Art Intel Advance: For any experienced artist that would like to learn about Mixed Media and Abstraction
What symbols from your life will you reveal in your artwork either as a symbol, color, texture, composition or theme?
We will start the six weeks out with individual idea boards. (Compare the last exercise of the Diagonal Curve and your interpretation of the class painting.) We will do a strata board experimenting with the paste and gels so you will know how they work in your art work on a long narrow Crescent board. Go to the dictionary to look up strata! Come prepared to do a strata piece so you can experiment with the different gel and paste mediums. Put your thinking caps on and come up with something out of the ordinary for your strata! I have mine ready to go!!!
We will continue with mixed media compositions so if there is a particular mixed media technique that you would like to try just let me know and we will work with your ideas. I will demo the citrasolv paper technique. If you want to make some of the paper you will know how to do it at home afterwards. In case of sensitivities to the fragrance I will only demo and not make it as a class project. Collect National Geographic Magazines to make your paper in case you want to use them with your compositions. It makes beautiful papers that add a lot to your collage compositions
The new class will begin May 5, 12, 19, 26 and June 2 and 9th. This class is $75 for this set of classes, non refundable. You can sign up at Artist Alley.com before the first class. Please make any checks out to Artist-Alley.com. Also I will have you pick up a couple of jars of gel or paste for our mixed media experiments. As usual I will keep it nominal. With a coupon and a name of a product we will use these jars for the class to share. The second jar is your choosing of soft gel medium gloss or the regular gel medium gloss for gluing and preparing of Crescent boards.
Please let me know ASAP who will take this class so I can choose the gels and mediums that you will donate to the class. Each one of you will be assigned one so that we have a variety to experiment with.
I’m looking forward to working with you on some fun projects. Once again you will be working on your own compositional ideas. Let me know who will take this class and I will send the supply list for the first class.
