Workshops led by Kathryn Kelsey, Mixed Media Artist, and Colleen Werner, Abstract Layerism

Workshop II: Collage (October 11)
Workshop III: Paper on Canvas (October 18)
Workshop IV: Aquamedia (October 25)
These workshops are designed to cover many of the elements and materials that go into making successful art that is imaginative and impressionistic to abstract. We are not working from realistic images or photos. We will discuss use of color, composition, elements of a good piece, shape and form, and the use of symbols and images to tell a story or convey a mood. You are encouraged to work from your imagination and tell your own inner story through the visual arts. Emphasis is on having fun, leaving self-judgment outside the door.
Each workshop can stand alone, but by taking all four you will have more chance to develop your individual techniques and images, and get an overview of materials to use to do so. Each workshop occurs on a Saturday, from 10 to 4 pm in Studio 107 (my working studio, located at 3840 Finley Avenue in West Santa Rosa.) The cost is $75 for each workshop. Most materials, such as paints, papers, mediums, brushes are included. The materials you will purchase are supports for your work: (board, paper and canvas) for three of the workshops.
Take all four for $250
