Mixed Media Art Classes

Join me in the studio for one of these upcoming mixed media art classes.

Art Journal Junkies – Abstract Blooms

DATE: Saturday, March 25, 2017 | 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM
LOCATION: Whole Hearted Art Studios, Katy TX
COST: $20 per one afternoon class (most supplies included.)
BRING: Art journal, tools, or supplies you have that I don’t.

The blooms of spring will soon be arriving. Let’s celebrate their arrival by dreaming up beautiful blooms of our favorite flowers in our art journals. This class will teach the technique of painting primarily with a palette knife.

In this meetup we will get together and fill a page in your art journal. I will walk you through the technique of palette knife painting. The rest of the class will be self-paced allowing you to dive into the new technique and fill your creative cup. Palette knives and paint will be provided, or you are welcome to bring yours if you prefer. Please bring your own multimedia pens or pencils for extra texture as I may not have enough to go around.

Ron Mueck @ The MFAH

DATE: Thursday, April 6, 2017 | 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM
LOCATION: Museum Of Fine Arts Houston – Caroline Wiess Law Building

Thursday’s are FREE at MFAH, so I thought we would spend an evening checking out the Ron Mueck exhibit, sipping on cocktails and talking about art! His sculptures will definitely give us a lot to talk about. The gallery closes at 9pm – so we may want to head somewhere else after for the discussion. But we can decide that at the time, based on how many people are in the group and how long we spend at the exhibit.

The son of German émigrés, Mueck was born in Australia in 1958. After working in film and television in the United States and London, he shifted his focus to the fine arts in the mid-1990s. The 13 sculptures assembled in this exhibition—about a third of Mueck’s entire production—encapsulate the arc of his career from 1999 to 2013. Often caught in moments of silent communication or slumber, these figures illustrate the artist’s ongoing investigation of the cycle of life, from the first moment of consciousness, to young love, to the various stages of maturity and aging, and ultimately to oblivion.

Art Journal Junkies – Taking Flight

DATE: Saturday, April 29, 2017 | 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM
LOCATION: Whole Hearted Art Studios, Katy TX
COST: $20 per one afternoon class (most supplies included)
BRING: Art journal, tools or supplies you have that I don’t, decoupage glue or gel medium.

As summer approaches, we will take flight and shed your winter feathers with collage, paint, ink and pen! In this meetup we will get together and fill a page in your art journal. Taking flight is the prompt for this class.

We will select a color palette that coincides with a selection of patterned paper and collage feathers of your favorite feathered animal onto your art journal page. If you don’t want to create an owl, please bring reference photos of the animal you would like to let fly on your page. Paint, paper, stamps and ink will be provided. Please bring your own glue. This is your chance to get your hands colored with paint, glue and ink and connect with other creative spirits!
