Life Drawing Workshop in My Studio

I will be hosting a Life Drawing Workshop in my studio on Saturday January 8, 10 am - 2 pm. Pictured above is Lee Radtke drawing my son Alex posing in his fencing uniform, this was a lot of fun because it was so different from what we normally draw with the Valley Art Club. Molly will be the model on January 8, she will pose nude for 2 short poses and then a very long pose. This will be an excellent time for working on a finished drawing or painting. Coffee and snacks will be available with a lunch break of 30 minutes so bring a lunch and drink. My studio is located in the Garden level of the Lakeside Legacy Arts Park in Crystal Lake. I have plenty of space and tables, chairs and easels available.

Mixed Media Miniatures Workshop in my studio December 11

with Sandie Bacon

Mixed Media Miniatures
Date: December 11th, 1:30- 3:00
Cost: $35.00 All ages
Learn the latest techniques in Acrylics and then
apply them to the creation of several small scale pieces
(8" x 8" or less).

We will transfer photo copies into gels, which can then be painted into or embellished. We'll also use found objects and embed these into different gels and pastes to make mixed media pieces that are very 3d! Using photos and /or objects that relate to a theme is a great way to make personalized art works....or even small scale Christmas presents or ornaments. We'll use glass bead gel, interference and iridescent paints, and many other transparent and opaque gels and pastes. This is a great class to explore the wide variety of Golden products as they apply to mixed media. Bring ribbons, beads, shells, specialty papers, and any small objects for the miniatures.
