I have opened up registration for my new Mixed Media Workshops. The first will be on Sunday October 21 1 pm to 5 pm, and the next is Friday October 26 6 pm to 10 pm. They will be 4 hours and together we will build a painting with different mediums starting with acrylic paint and then we will be using gel medium, wall paper, acrylic ink, oil paintsticks and the list goes on. It’s a laid back, low key, no pressure workshop. Don’t hesitate because you think you have no artistic talent, because none is needed. I will be hands on step by step guiding and the participants will come away with a 5 X 7 or 6 X 6 gallery wrapped completed canvas painting. Each workshop is limited to eleven artists. It would be a good time for friends to get together and do something different or if you just want to get away and come by yourself you will have a good time. I hope to have up to four workshops per month. I already have my first registrant, and I am very excited to meet new people and pass on the fun of mixed media. It is a very forgiving way to paint. We use household items to make texture and marks, like brushes, lids, bubble wrap along with your fingers.
This is a gem of a building, the Pennsy Depot with has been newly restored and was just put on the National Register of Historic Places in 2017. I have it reserved for our workshops and it is right beside the Decatur Police and fire departments. The address is 111 N. 7th Street, Decatur. The city also has many good restaurants to dine at before or after your workshop. When the time gets closer I will have all that information listed on my website.To register click on over to my website and at the top click on workshop or go into the Here’s My hART shop. Both dates are listed in the dropdown.
This weekend I will be going to a new art fair that I haven’t participated in before. Looking forward to it, and I don’t think it is going to be blazing hot like my last few.
Dogwood Park sounds like a delightful area to have a show at, and it may have a lot of trees. I don’t have my booth assignment yet but will post it on Facebook when I do.
This last weekend we had a family pool party at our house. It was nice to have everyone together and missed the few that were not able to make it. We had a pretty good turnout and some of the out of towners were able to make it. We grabbed the opportunity to have a family picture because it had been at least 5 years or more.
My last art show was a hometown show, so I didn’t have to travel. It was Art in the Park in Freiman Square in Fort Wayne. It was hot, I was under a large shade tree with good foot traffic. I also had my fans with me so I did not melt too bad. They asked if I was happy with my spot, so I should get it next year too.
These two are sisters and spent a lot of time in my booth, they were a delight. Donna and Michele, thank you for your time and I hope to see you again.
