Workshop at McRae Art Studios

Drawing and Painting with Mixed Media Collage

Learn the joys of mixed media collage.  In the workshop, I teach the fundamentals of collage, drawing and painting. I will address working with papers, fabrics, found objects, past art work, pencil and charcoal drawing, and acrylic painting.  The materials used will be the choice of each student, but students are encouraged to incorporate some of their own prior art work into new pieces. The objective of the workshop is to explore new mixed media techniques and excavate each student’s authentic voice in their art.

I teach 2 drawing methods using the student's own photos. I teach how to graph a photo for any size free hand drawing and also a tracing method that works well for small pieces and individuals who are intimidated or new to drawing. We learn the fundamentals of collage on the first day and then spend the second day drawing and painting over those collages. I do drawing demonstrations on the first day so that you know what to expect and what kind of photo reference to bring. I work individually with each person trying to get their projects to a place that they love.

I encourage everyone to incorporate mixed media collage into what they already do! I will work with each of you on whatever style project you would like to work on whether it is faces, figures, landscapes, still lives or abstracts. There are no set rules in my workshops. I try to create a fun time that introduces new techniques and a comfortable learning environment to enhance where you already are. All levels are welcomed!

NEW LOVE- Hosting workshops at McRae

I had a fantastic time with 7 fabulous ladies this past weekend at McRae Art Studios. Our relatively new studio is huge and beautiful and perfect for teaching. I can't wait to host another one here! Here are some photos of the fun. Thank you ladies for a fun weekend!!!

What an Honor!

I just came off a weekend workshop at my studio in Mount Dora with 8 of the most positive and fun ladies ever! Ina and Elina flew to Mount Dora all the way from the Netherlands! Seriously, I'm honored. Everyone created a piece that made them happy and made me proud. Having such talented people in my workshops really makes my job so easy! So thank you again ladies! 

Here's their fantastic pieces and presence.... Can't wait to do it again with you ladies! 

My demo pieces...I was happy with them too!

Donna, Joann, Connie, Ruth Ann, Kathryn, Helen, Mary, Anne, Liz and Sherri--- thank you for pushing yourself and surrendering to the process. All of you made great work. Looking forward to drawing with you all again!
