Collage challenge and Fossils

Top o'the morning! Well after two wonderful classes last weekend I am excited and ready for my next two classes. The first class is Collage Challenge #1 on Saturday at Art max in Seaside. What's a collage challenge? Well lets put it this way-this is a class where the advanced and intermediate students start to put it all together- a chance to take a deep breath and assess where their art is going. For beginning students it will be a chance to learn some new techniques and to find out where they would like their art to go. But that's all I can say for now because you cannot know the theme of the class until the class starts! TeeHee! Sundays class is shrink art #3-Fossils at Scrapbook Depot in San Carlos. You can see a scan of some of them above. You don't have to even dig around in the dirt for these fossils. Here are the particulars of both classes.
Saturday March 20th Where: ArtMax in Seaside Class: Collage Challenge #1 Description: How about a challenge? In this class you will be given an 8 x 10 stretched canvas, collage images and access to past collage instructions, texture mediums, paints and all the extra stuff I usually bring. You will then have 3 hours to create a collage using the techniques of your choice. The goal of this class is threefold: • To help you begin the process of understanding, recognizing and creating your own unique artistic style by incorporating the techniques you have learned so far. • To prepare you for the challenges and time constraints required for shows and publication. • To practice and gain confidence creating art with the materials at hand. Here’s the kicker guys: you will not know the theme of the collage until the class starts. But trust me most of you will love it! At the end of the class we will have a mini art show and we will all vote on the winner. Better yet the winner gets a prize! So are you up for the challenge and the fun? Of course you are! Come and play! Items to bring: Paint brushes, scissors, and gel medium. Time: 11:00am to 2:30 pm Fee: $40.00***please note that this price has gone up $5.00 because of the amount of materials that will be supplied. If you wish to sign up for this class please email me at Sunday March 21st Where: Scrapbook Depot in San Carlos Class: Shrink Art- Fossils Description: Have you ever dreamed of being an anthropologist and making the spectacular fossil find of the century? Then this class is for you! With shrink plastic, just a little special coloring and the right stamps you can make your own fossils. You can even avoid the mess and bother of having to dig them out of the ground. Your fossils can then be made into unique jewelry. You will walk out of the class with a fossil pin and earrings. Or if you prefer, some fossils to attach to your cards, collages or scrapbooks. Please bring Scissors. All other materials will be supplied. Time: 12:30 to 3:30 Fee:$35.00 If you wish to sign up for this class please call Scrapbook Depot at 650 592-2767
