Join me for a 2-day workshop that is all about play, composition, and telling stories with the elements of art (line, shape, color, and texture). We’ll start by experimenting with different mediums and substrates, pushing our layers to excess just to see if we can. I will show you my favorite layering techniques and methods. Then we’ll organize our layers into compositions that make sense visually and concentrate on the stories we are telling with our layers.
