BEGINNING SCRATCHBOARD with Janice Elliott (www.janiceelliott.com)

If you've noticed the pumpkins and tomatoes hanging as paintings in the gift shop, now is the time to find out more about them.  Join Janice Elliott’s scratchboard painting workshop for adults to learn all about it.  Janice is a life-long artist with experience teaching children, teens and adults.

 

While everyone in the class will be working with the same image, participants will be encouraged to choose mark-making that best suits their interpretation of the subject. Instruction will include transferring images to the 5x7 board, indicating shapes and value changes, scratching the image into the surface, correction methods, and finishing. The amazing differences depicted, even when everyone is working with the same image, is always fun to see. Come enjoy a wonderful morning.

Due to the COVID-19 virus, face masks must be worn at all times. The Workshop will be in the main gallery with tables spaced 6-feet apart.

INTRODUCTION TO ABSTRACT PAINTING - Watercolors or Acrylics with Connie Canby  

As abstract artists we are often misunderstood because many of our

viewers want things to look familiar and to represent scenes or objects.

In fact, abstract paintings do represent feelings, events, pictures, people,

places, things and experiences.  As artists we fragment and enlarge part

or some or all of these and translate them into designs relying on color,

shapes, textures and skills. 

 

Thru this series of painting experiments you may experience a new, freer,

more expressive artist, and your already “famous art” may have a renewed,

enthusiastic, and vibrant feel and look.

 

Our skill level in copying a scene, a photo, (even your own) may have

reached a very high level but, if we are not able to express what we want

or mean, we could just be making more pretty pictures and not challenging

our true potential. Let’s discover this new or renewed relationship with our

medium and run with it.  I guarantee fun, laughter, and “wow” moments.

Due to the COV-19 virus face masks must be worn at all times.  

The Workshop will be in the main gallery with tables spaced

6-feet apart.  Bring your own lunch.
