Finger Painting for Grown-ups (aka Don't Toss Those Dried Up Paint Markers Yet)






 

I am very happy to announce that I will be returning to teach on a monthly basis in the Normal Heights Neighborhood of San Diego at a private studio (classes are open to the public for this workshop. Details will be sent upon registration.)


Workshops are from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. 


My workshops aim to teach a variety of NEW ideas involving collage, creative processing, self expression, composition, design, layering, painting and much, much more.

My workshops are always process-based learning while creating a unique product. I am well known for not traveling light and bring a large variety of supplies including (but not limited to) collage material, rubber stamps, stencils, pens, markers, tape and more. Please note there is a small supply list.

Beginners to advanced are welcome in ALL of the classes.

You may send someone else in your place if you are unable to attend the workshop, or you will receive a kit for the class. You can either pay via paypal (see button below) or send a check or money order. Once you've signed up for the workshop, you will be sent the address and directions to the workshop location. If you have ANY questions you can email me. I will also give you my cell phone number so you contact me.

The class fee includes a vast array of mediums and materials to complete the necessary project. It is well known that I do not travel light to any of my classes. I will be bringing such things are: 

  • all materials necessary to complete the project (handmade paper, decorative paper, board, glue, etc...)
  • bookbinding supplies (thread, awl, needles)
  • rubber stamps 
  • ink pads 
  • decorative tape
  • stencils
  • pens and markers
  • gel medium

Finger Painting for Grown-ups (aka Don't Toss Those Dried Up Paint Markers Yet)

I'm tired of throwing away dried up paint markers. I'm sure you are, too. How do we rejuvenate paint markers that won't write anymore? We paint with them! Yes, PAINT! 

This isn't just basic finger painting for adults using paint markers. I've been OBSESSED with using my paint markers lately to do more than just write, draw, color and make marks with. Come to class and I'll share with you all of the ways in which, you too, can make pages as luscious as the above sample photos are (if I do say so myself!) Bring water based paint markers that won't write but have gobs of paint still left in them. Bring water based paint marker refills that you haven't used in ages and I'll share how to use them (instead of leaving them to dry up or tossing them.) 

Journey deep into a realm of luscious color, exploratory layers and expressive journal pages. BYOJournal and a sense of play to this fun new workshop. Explore layers of paper, paint and pen using a plethora of creative techniques and playful exploration. 

I have been obsessed about the freedom and creative possibilities offered in this workshop. Be prepared to play, expand and experience... also, to laugh. 

ONLY if you have them, please bring any of your favorite water-based paint markers and refills to class (I will have a generous selection.) It's a good way to explore paint markers you might not have played with in a while. (Do NOT go out and buy paint markers for this workshop!)


Supply list: your journal, water based paint markers and refills (see above comment), an apron, scissors, a small selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images and papers), cork back metal ruler, a full roll of paper towels OR old rags, your favorite paint brushes, a few of your favorite glue sticks (please trust me when I say that large glue sticks will last you longer. I always have two or three 40 gram glue sticks in my journal bag and that's more than enough for a long weekend. You WILL go through the smaller glue sticks in MINUTES), roll of waxed paper OR an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don't want to use all of your waxed paper for this.)






 


I hope to see you there!
