It’s cold and rainy in my neck of the woods, but NOT here inside my studio!
If you want to take Spring into your own hands with gesso, watercolor, and a healthy dose of flower fun, join me for an extended five-week long play time — set to finish just when the REAL flowers start to come in!
My name is Carla Sonheim. If you don’t know me, I am the author of ”Drawing Lab for Mixed Media Artists: 52 Creative Exercises to Make Drawing Fun“ and a workshop instructor known for my fun and inventive exercises that have helped many adults recover a more child-like, playful approach to creating.
I also make watercolor fun! Over the past 15 years I’ve developed my own unique way of working with watercolors alone and combining them with gesso and other media that result in luminous, rich painted surfaces.
These techniques can be taken to paper, wood, and canvas, and we’ll work with all three surfaces during the course (plus a few other surprises!).
Some of the things we’ll play with:
This painting class (which will also include both drawing and collage assignments) builds week-by-week, so that by the end you can take your new-found tips, tricks, and flower love to your journals, paintings, altered books, and even your furniture, if you like!
