Creative Workshops offers New Classes

Over at Creative Workshops Gail has added two new and exciting classes for your Muse! As always Creative Workshops wants to find ways to inspire your muse, to help you when you fall into a creative slump…and face it most of us do from time to time, and while it’s gotten to be a tired out adage, Creative Workshops offers ways for you to “think outside the box” when it comes to your artwork.

This is not a class about creating anything digitally through Photoshop or any photo editor. It’s about what you can now print on that you couldn’t print on before, because inkjet ink won’t adhere to many surfaces without going dull or faint or blurry. And too often inks will pool, run and smear easily. But not anymore!
The first class is one Gail Schmidt is offering and it is most definitely a class for those of you who want to take it up a notch! It’s titled Golden Digital Grounds – Expand Your Possibilities!Class starts May 11, 2009.

The second class is being offered by Nancy Lefko and is titled PAINTED FABRIC COLLAGE WORKSHOP . Nancy is mixing it up with patchwork, paint and collage…all on fabric. Now your Muse will have another take on working on fabric that maybe she hadn’t thought of before. Nancy has been receiving great feedback on her Mixed Media Backgrounds class so I know that this class will be just as fun and informative! Class begins May 25, 2009.
And as I already mentioned in a previous post, I am offering a second session of Visual Journalism 101 and Shades of Grey Moleskine Journaling is also open for registration. Come check us out!

Day 32, still going

What can I say, if you do something for 31 days in a row you develop a habit:-) I used Golden’s liquid matte medium with Caran d’ache water soluble crayons in my Moleskine journal. The pages hold up really well to this method.
My Art Journalism 101 class is in it’s 4th week and we have an amazing 105 students! Everyone’s pages are looking wonderful. Class registration is closed, but I will be offering it again in the future. I am working on a Shades of Grey class, that will be featuring Pitt Pens. I’ve had so many asking about it that I decided to take that on for my next workshop. I will keep you posted as to dates and registration etc.

New Etsy Listing

Finally, I finished this canvas! It has been sitting on my easel, begging me to finish it. Summer is here though, and it is so hard to get much indoor time. ‘Abundant Love’ is a 12x12x2, gallery wrapped canvas. I got to use my new Golden paints and Caran D’ache water soluble crayons on it. It is so wonderful to work with quality mediums. Check out my ‘Yart Sale’ that will be going on until the 20th of June. I have already sold several things, and I do have a couple of canvasses still listed, as well as some prints and smaller works. It’s a great time to get some good deals on Etsy. Remember to buy handmade!
