Saturday, May 6th -- In Your Face:
In this fast-paced class we are going to explore a variety of different techniques for creating unique and expressive portraits using stencils. Combining collage, paints, inks, oil pastels and markers you’ll learn all of the subtle tricks you need to create portraits that capture the essence of everything from pop art to dimensional artworks. Truly inspired by many of todays street artists we’ll be creating our engaging portraits through the use of multiple layers of materials as well as layered stencil effects. We’ll be using a pad of mixed media paper for all of our experiments, the best of which will be ready to frame and hang on your wall.
Sunday, May 7th -- Tin Type Tarot
Tarot cards. To me these lovely little pearls of archetypal wisdom imbued with mystery, fascinating symbols to decode, and gorgeous imagery are absolutely magical.
I think the first time I remember seeing a tarot deck was in the James Bond Movie “Live and Let Die” where Solitaire, played by Jane Seymour is using them to tell the future with an ultra cool and stylized deck – I’ve been hooked ever since.
In this class we’re going to combine the beauty of the tarot with the fun and fancy of a fortune cookie by modifying a small tin or box to look intriguing on the outside and contain a secret tarot realm inside. We’ll construct our own stylized “cards” by creating a multi-layered mixed media collage-assemblage and throughout the process discuss how to incorporate the symbols that will tell our stories or our fortunes. Don’t know much about tarot decks? Don’t worry, you’ll get my tarot archetype cheatsheet to help you get started. I see a great workshop in your future!
