Summer Sessions at Sandra's Open Studio - Saturdays Aug. 6-27, 2011

Time is flying and I don't even remember when it got wings!  The summer session is starting this Saturday.  This is a four week session, with each of the first three sessions designed to stand alone and work together as a whole. Bring along a stretched canvas or buy one here and join in the fun.  Classes still run from 10 am to 1 pm, $20 materials included (except the canvas!).

Sat. Aug 6 - experience modeling paste for the first time or all over again - we will spend some time outside, sketching and building up our canvasses

Sat. Aug 13 - plan on leaving your canvas behind to dry this week as we play with "wet-into-wet" techniques, especially fun if the weather co-operates

Sat. Aug. 20 - re-visit collage techniques, play with subtle texture changes and add fine detail to your piece

Sat. Aug. 27 - finish your canvas and take home a masterpiece!  This is not meant to be a stand-alone week.  We will be looking at alternate ways to finish a piece.

While I have a specific project in mind for the four weeks, each of the first three sessions will bring about a better understanding of the techniques and materials listed above.  If you miss week 1, just bring along a canvas and start your project on week 2 and the same goes for missing week 2.  Some how, some way, we will end up somewhere wonderful!
