Let’s face it, we all have a fear of the blank canvas from time to time. Where does inspiration come from and how do we take what we have in our heads and bring it to life on the canvas? During this extended weekend workshop, we will immerse ourselves in a variety of ways to draw upon inspiration to create abstract works of art, still life vignettes, and/or a combination of all the above. The choice is yours! Students will be encouraged to explore both realistic and the abstract as part of the concept of “Double Vision”.
Students will work both in and out of the studio in a group setting during our time together as we visit an iconic local landmark shop filled with botanical elements, antiques, textural fodder, and buildings that will serve as our basis of creative inspiration. Jodi will demonstrate multiple ways to bring your vision to reality with prompts, photography, hands on demonstrations, and more! Students will have a choice of working in semi-realistic fashion or abstract with acrylic paints or watercolors along with drawing materials, and art journaling.
** Please Note: If students would like to work in both acrylic and watercolor, they may do so with an additional kit fee of $40, available in the drop down box on the right side of this page.
If you are looking to enhance your artistic skills and learn to move from the blank canvas to creating a visionary point of view, this course is for you! Double Vision will open your eyes to the possibilities that can unfold when you tune into your senses by the end of the workshop.
We strive to provide you with much of what you will need to have a care-free relaxed weekend of creating, so your supply needs will be very minimal. Students should bring their own brushes (acrylic and or watercolor) and if you choose, a palette to work with. Palette paper will be provided but if you have your own palette especially with a cover, you may want to bring that. Watercolor students will be provided with both water color paper, and water color board to work with along with drawing material. Acrylic students will be provided with acrylic paints, gesso, various gel mediums, as well as 2 canvases to work with. While not necessary, if you have colors you just can’t live without, feel free to bring a small selection of water colors or acrylics. Students will also have access to many stencils, collage materials, and assorted texture making tools. *Other supplies you may want to bring: Apron, art journal, photocopies of unique textures, landscapes, buildings or structures, basically anything that may lend inspiration to you.
